  1. Place pork chops, paprika, oregano, garlic powder, salt, pepper, chili powder, bay leaf, chicken broth, water, and soy sauce in a large stock pot. Bring to a boil, uncovered, then reduce heat to medium low and let simmer for 1 hour. Remove the pork chops and set aside to cool.
  2. Whisk 3/4 cup of the cooking liquid with the flour; set aside. When the pork chops are cool remove and discard any bones or fat. Chop or shred the meat into bite size pieces.
  3. Add the potato, broccoli, carrot, onion, celery, and cooked pork back to the pot. Bring the mixture to a boil, stir in the flour mixture. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour. Remove the bay leaf and gently mash the potatoes before serving.

This was FABULOUS! I made some slight variations but didn't change too much: I thought it would make a better stew than a soup, so I only used 1 - 1/2 cups of chicken broth rather than 3 cups. Also, I used bok choy instead of broccoli. I love broccoli but it has such a strong flavor on its own and I thought this recipe could use something more subtle.

It was good but I would skip adding any additional salt and use low sodium broth.

Very good. I slow roasted the pork in the oven before adding to the soup to develop the flavor. I omitted the flour and used green beans instead of broccoli. Will make again on a cold winter day.

My husband, daughter and I absolutely loved this recipe! I was looking for something to use 2 extra pork chops we had (we are sort of dieting and trying to cut back on how much meat we eat) and this recipe was perfect exactly what I was looking for! Thanks so much for sharing it:)

Fantastic! I usually make "Ultimate Spicy Spud Soup" from this site when I'm feeling overwintered. but I was sick of it and I had broccoli and decided to try this. It is really great. The taste is soup (very celery tasting, which I like.) But the texture is stew so I added more water. Changes: More spices, cause I like that. Also threw in some green beans and pretty much any leftover veggie I had. Also, I used all chicken stock and only used water to bring it to a consistency I liked. Good as is though. It's going into rotation.

WOW this was fantastic! I followed the recipe and only made one change, I added garlic. We LOVED this!!

The whole family loved this. I saved a step by pan frying some thin chops and placing everything together to simmer for an hour. I also added some mushrooms for texture. Lovely!

Love the soup. It's a little salty though. I'll probably either cut back the salt or make sure to get low sodium chicken broth. I browned two Costco center cut pork chops cut into pieces in some olive oil and a clove of chopped garlic. Then, I added the rest of the ingredients as suggested. After around 45 minutes I put the veggies in. I didn't use the flour either. I usually like a thicker texture, but it was great without it this time. Oh, I didn't use broccoli, didn't have any.
