This was a good and easy to prepare but nothing to write home about. I would definitely make it again but instead of 2 cans cream of mushroom I will try 1 cr of mush and 1 golden mushroom or cream of something else just to give it a little more flavor.

I followed the recipe as written and after a taste test it was just OK so I added an envelope of dry onion soup to it and it was much, much better.

Such delicious comfort food. Smells incredible when it's baking. Use plenty of fresh onion. We've made this twice so far, second time we tried a boneless pork shoulder roast cut into slabs (cooked it for two hours to be sure it was done throughout)--it was great.

A very easy recipe to prepare and my husband cleaned his plate. The only change I made was to fry the pork chops in butter; remove the chops to a casserole, and added mushroom soup to the frying pan dripping plus ½ can of water. After bring the soup to a boil I then added the soup to the casserole, cover it with foil, and baked it for 30 min at 350 degrees. All in all it was very tastily.

I was looking for something that didn't require a ton of ingredients and was easy to prepare. This recipe was it! I've tried a pot roast cooked in a similar fashion and loved it, so I thought I would give this a whirl. Since it is just me, I cooked one pork chop with 1/2 can of soup. I seasoned with rosemary and onion flakes, plus salt. I found the pork chop moist and flavorful. This recipe is a keeper for me! It's easy to throw in the oven after work while I take the dogs for a walk. Thanks!

This dish was pretty good. I enjoyed the 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup. However, I do find the recipe missing something - salt, pepper, string beans, carrots, maybe? Whatever it is, the magic ingredient would definitely make this a stellar recipe.

Taste is 3 stars ease is 5 stars. I am glad to have something like this to go to after work and the family gets fast comfort food. Thank you. Anyone who is honestly expecting gormet out of a can of soup and a pork chop needs to get real.

This was easy and economical. A great base recipe to make your own. I seasoned my chops well and browned them, placed in bottom of slow cooker, mixed 1 can cream of mushroom, minced garlic, 1/2 an envelope of dried onion soup mix, about 1/4 c white wine, and 1 can of mushrooms. Then poured over the chops. I cooked this on low 6 hours and it was perfect. Finished it off with a little sour cream to help cut the salt. Served with pasta. Definitely not gourmet but a good pantry/ freezer meal when you don't feel much like cooking and are low on groceries.
