Low Country Smothered Pork Chops

No food history today. Today's recipe comes from my favorite lady Paula Deen. I was watching Paula's Home Cooking and she was making Low Country Smothered Pork Chops. The recipe look so easy to make. No knife needed, Paula was cutting the pork chops with her fork. So you know they are tender and moist. And the bell peppers and onions are so tasty. So I had to give them a try, so glad I did. Yum factor!

I just adore Paula Deen and her family. I love her sunny personality and her laugh. Her humor makes me laugh. I enjoy trying different recipes from her cookbooks, her shows and her website. Her recipes are to die for. Not only is she a great cook, but she is honest. Paula is a true southern lady. She puts her family first. She never forgets where she came from. Paula works hard. I'm addicted to the Food Network and The Cooking Channel. Paula Deen is one of my favorite cooks. Paula says... she isn't a chef she's a cook. I just love her.

  5. Mmm...smothered pork chops. I'm drooling!

    Whenever I flip the channel and see that Paula Deen is on, I just have to wait 'till I hear her say "y'all," and then I end up watching the rest of the episode.

  6. Pork Chops! I like the idea of cooking the pork chops and smothering it with vegetables in a covered pan. I can imagine the combining flavors once done. Great recipe!

  7. Very interesting. That's one way to slow cook on the over and keep the moisture in with the foil.

    Looks awesome!

  8. Preparation is the key to good pork chops because they can turn out dry. Your recipe does sound like they would be wonderfully tender and moist. I will need to try this-well done.

  15. I like hearing about you and what you like and do so much! I never did well in history when I was a kid. :/

    Paula is a woman who knows how to make comfort food, that's for sure. These pork chops look fantastic. And, if you can truly cut them with a fork, they're heading to the top of my to-make list!

  19. Oh man I love pork chops. I can rarely eat them as it's a ibs trigger though. Every now and then I indulge in some pork and this is what I go for. Pork chops are so good. Yours look so tender and moist. My mouth is just watering. I was craving fish but now that craving is heading over to pork.

  24. I tried making these last week and they were sooo yummy! I would have never thought to use Worcestershire sauce with pork chops, but they came out really good - even though I was working with less than ideal ingredients on some levels lol. I don't remember it calling for the hot sauce though. Must have overlooked it, but I'm sure that would have added another layer of flavor too!
