So… I love food. I enjoy cooking and eating. I also enjoy collecting cookbooks. I have a lot of cookbooks in my closet that I need to look at more often. Some of them are awesome vintage cookbooks from various local organizations. I’m going to make an effort to take a look at and try and create some new-to-us dishes. I was looking at my autographed (by George Yoshida) cookbook called Best Recipes from George Yoshida’s Kitchen lately. One recipe in the book is called Baked Pork Chops and is described as a pork chop recipe that will melt in your mouth and is “truly broke da mouth!”
I got some center cut boneless pork chops and white mushrooms from KTA. I had the cream of mushroom soup and seasonings in my pantry. I love that the recipe is so easy. Just season the chops in salt, pepper, and crushed garlic for several hours. I used my friend’s homemade seasoned salt for this recipe. When ready to cook, coat it in flour and fry to a golden brown color on each side and then transfer it to a baking pan. Layer sliced mushrooms and a can of undiluted cream of mushroom soup over the chops and cover with foil and bake at 350 for about 45-60 minutes.
The only thing that would make this recipe better is if I didn’t have to dirty a frying pan as one of the steps. But — still super easy. Thanks, George. Miss you. Living Hilo Style.
