Many of my memories from childhood revolve around family meal-times. Sunday lunch was often the highlight of the week. If we were at one of my grandparents there would usually be a lot of family and friends. There was always a lot of stories and laughter. One of my favorite dishes that my Mama C made was One Dish Meal. She often made it for Sunday lunch. It is the perfect Sunday lunch.
- Pork chops (1 per person)
- Potatoes — sliced
- Onions — sliced
- Carrots — either cut or baby carrots
- Mushrooms (optional)
- Peppers (optional)
- Seasoning to taste — I use either salt and pepper or Steak House seasoning.
- Make packets: Start with a piece of foil for each one. Place 1 pork chop on each foil. Add seasonings if desired. Top with vegetables. Seal packets
- Place packets in pan and bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes. Originally my grandmother baked them in the oven. I’ve also tried throwing the packets on the grill. It takes about 25-30 minutes. It is really good if you smoke it over wood. I’ve also cooked them in the crock pot. To cook in a crock pot layer the packets in the crock pot. Add about about 2 inches of water. Cook on high for about 4 hrs. This way is great to use for Sunday lunch. Throw it in the crock pot before church and lunch is ready when you return.
