Pork Chops Supreme

This has been one of our favorites for 26 years. It is an attractive dish too, so plain old pork chops become dinner for company. Warn them about the whole cloves though, or remove the cloves before serving.

4 - 1/2" thick, boneless pork chops
salt & pepper
4 whole cloves
1/2 cup water
1 teas. sugar
1 bay leaf
1/2 cup sour cream
2 Tbsp. vinegar

Season chops with salt and pepper, then dredge in flour.

Brown on both sides in small amount of fat. Insert 1 whole clove in each chop; place in baking dish. Pour excess fat from frying pan, add water,  sugar, bay leaf, sour cream and  vinegar. Stir, scraping bottom of pan, then pour mixture over chops. Cover pan. Bake about 1 1/2 hours at 350 degrees.

You can also make these chops right in the frying pan! Cover the pan and use low heat.  Don't forget to drain off the fat.  Check frequently to be sure that there is enough moisture and the chops are not burning or sticking to the pan.  Add a little water and run a spatula under the chops a few times while they are cooking.

All the pork dishes are good with Brussel Sprouts or Cauliflower.   Something simple is called for... like steamed sprouts with lemon and ground pepper.
