Pork Chops and Potatoes

My meat and potatoes guy has me adding some kind of potato to almost every meal.
Pork Chop and Potatoes
I started this meal by searing the pork chops in the bottom of the pan. I had too many for one pan so I seared them a few at a time.

Then I used the drippings to sauté garlic and onions. I diced 4 potatoes and put into the bottom of the pan.

For the next layer, I laid the pork chops in a circle overlapping them like shingles.

I added a can of cream of mushroom soup and half a can of water  (used to clear out the can.)

I  put the cover on and baked it at 350 for an hour. To brown the top I removed the cover and baked another 15 minutes.

  1. How many pork chops did you use and what thickness?

  2. 4 is optimal but I had 5 or 6 that day. We prefer a thicker cut pork chop. The thin 1/2 inch cook too fast and get dry or tough. Notice how I pinwheel them in the pan if they don't fit flat.
