Here is a recipe from the great Leah Chase. It is a simple down home recipe that you can find in homes around New Orleans.

3 Pork Chops (8 ounces each)

Salt and Pepper to taste

2 tablespoons Flour

1/2 cup Vegetable Oil

1 cup Water

2 Onions, sliced

1 Green Bell Pepper, cut into long strips

Rub chops with salt and pepper and dredge each chop in flour, coating lightly. heat oil in a large sauté pan over high heat. Place chops in hot oil and brown about 4 minutes per side. Drain out and excess oil. Add water and scrape the bottom of the pan. Turn chops over. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and let cook for 5 minutes. Add onions on top of chops, cover, and cook until onions are just soft, about 10 minutes. Add bell pepper. Season, to taste with more salt and pepper and let simmer for 5 minutes longer.


Good Cooking, Good Eating and Good Living!!!


I lived in New Orleans, since birth, until Hurricane Katrina. I now live in Arkansas with my wife and our spoiled-rotten dog. I have been cooking since I was 8. My first cookbook, You can't keep New Orleans out of the cook, is now available at and most online bookstores. It is also available on Kindle and Nook.
