1mealdishMany 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.
  1. 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
  2. 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.

    1. Yes. It is quite flexible. Season it how you wish, change the veggies or even sub chicken or ham slices. Pair it with a salad, rolls (I recommend the Rhodes frozen kind) and you have a nice meal.
