This one skillet pork chops and Parmesan potatoes recipes is one of my family’s favorite comfort meals.
Not only do the pork chops become soft, juicy and tender, the Parmesan flavored potatoes melt in your mouth!
You can use a variety of seasonings to flavor your one skillet pork chops. The recipe calls for basic salt and pepper seasoning but feel free to add whatever seasonings that you prefer.
My favorite seasonings for this recipe are pork and chop seasoning and Grill Mates Applewood rub.
Start off by sprinkling the seasoning on one side of your pork chop. Sear them in oil in the skillet so that the juices remain locked in the chops.
When you flip them over, add additional seasoning to the second side.
While searing the second side, push the chops to the edges of the pan and add butter to saute the onions at the same time that the pork chops are finishing.
I find it extremely helpful to use a mandolin slicer to produce even and thinly sliced onions and potatoes. The uniformity will allow them to cook through and be ready at the same time.
Be sure to use a skillet and lid that can tolerate being placed in the oven at 350 degrees F. If you are not sure if your lid is oven-safe, you can cover the skillet with foil.
And most importantly, don’t forget to use a pot holder when removing the skillet from the oven!
Trust me, it’s easy to forget when you are used to only using the skillet on the stove-top. I have burnt my hand on more than one occasion by just grabbing it when it was out of the oven but still hot.
Best of all – the ease of the clean up! Isn’t that why we all love one dish meals???
