DSCN2115My very picky family really enjoys this dish! The pork chops are very tender and the vegetables are done but not mushy. Having everything cooked in one dish makes preparing this dinner, simple and easy. With my busy schedule, that’s a big plus!

2 large potatoes, peeled and sliced
2 cups sliced mushrooms
2 medium onions, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons dry basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
4-6 (1/2 inch thick) lean, boneless pork chops or loin chops
2 (10 ounce) cans diced tomatoes & green chilies*

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Butter a 13×9 inch baking dish.

2. Place the potatoes, mushrooms, onions, basil, salt and pepper in the baking dish; toss to combine.

3. Place the pork chops over the vegetable mixture. Pour the diced tomatoes & green chilies over the pork chops.

4. Bake covered, until the pork and vegetables are tender, about 1 1/2 hours. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

*If you prefer a less spicy dish, just substitute a (14 1/2 ounce) can stewed tomatoes for the diced tomatoes & green chilies.
