Pork Chops and Veggies

This is probably not that healthy, and although you could cook it in a crock pot, I usually use my electric skillet. I apologize for not fitting the mold, but it's still a good meal, especially for cold winter months.

Salt and pepper 4 Pork Chops. Brown pork chops in 1/4 cup melted butter in an electric skillet. Add about 3 large potatoes, peeled and cubed, and 1 cup baby carrots. (I always eyeball the amounts. I just put as many vegetables as will fit.) In a separate bowl, mix together:
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can water
1 tsp salt
1 cup sour cream
1 Tbsp dried onion

Pour soup mixture over the top of vegetables. Turn skillet to low and cover. Stir occasionally. Cook until vegetables are tender--about 45 minutes.

Optional: add 1 can of mushrooms and/or 1 cup frozen peas.

You can also do this in the oven at 350 for 1 1/2 hours, or all day in a crock pot. Just brown the pork chops in a frying pan first, then pour the entire mixture into a baking dish (for the oven) or a crock pot.
