I have made this dish numerous times. It is one of my husbands all time favorites. I too added a little bit of beef stock to the cast iron skillet and made a skillet gravy that was a fabulous topper. I always caramelize some sweet Vidalia onions for about 20 - 25 mins to top the whole dish off!! Fabulous!! Thank you Paula!!

I'm still wanting to try your sweet potato crumble recipe. I had it a long time ago for Thanksgiving, from a friend of my moms. Do you have any other sweet potato recipes that are easy to make.

Just made this and it was quick and easy! I added one cup of beef broth, some fresh parsley, paprika and yellow mustard to the pan while the pork chops were cooking. This dish was wonderful!!

How much milk for the grits???????

Awesome Recipe! My family loved it! I had to reboil to milk for the grits cause the milk started burning at the bottom! But everything came out great! We also had a salad before the meal that is a paula dean recipe with avocado, tomato, red onion and corn! grin

BEST DINNER EVER!!! We grilled the pork instead of cooking it in the skillet and added a little chipotle rub. Plus I added a "little" bit more cheese than what the recipe called for, all in all it was a great dinner.

I'm only fourteen and I made this very easily. It does not have the most common indigence, but I made it in about three hours. My family loved it and so did I. (the grits were their favorite:) thanks so much!

How in the world is this time consuming? Lol.... seems very easy to me. Buy quick cooking grits and it will speed to process up. Also 10 minutes in plenty of time if they are thin to medium cut chops. Thick cut would obviously need more time, depending on the temperature.

This is SO yummo. Was a little time consuming in my opinion, but it didn't matter. It was more than worth it. Will most definitely cook again!
