Saucy Pork Chops with Five Grain Blend
This is my version of a dish Aggie made many, many years ago. In fact, it was the only way Aggie made pork chops. Wait, I take that back, she also made shake ‘n bake pork chops too, but this recipe was the one she made most often. In fact, Aggie really didn’t make this recipe but a recipe easier. Pork chops, oil and cream of mushroom soup, that was about it. I guess this is my updated version of Aggie’s version.
Word About 5 Grains Blend
This recipe uses Earthly Grains Quick Cook 5 Grains Blend. You can purchase Earthly Grains at Aldi. Five grains blend has 5 grains which are:
spelt, barley, wheat, rice and wholegrain oats. My mom Aggie made this dish without garlic, onions and white wine. She served saucy pork chops alongside mashed potatoes. We like to serve these tender, saucy chops with mashed potatoes also but today we’re going to serve them with Five Grain Blend.
