Hungarian Pork Chops!

We do copy and file quite a few recipes that I run across on various blogs that I follow.  Once in a while, we even follow through and actually make a meal or a dessert for ourselves using one of these recipe ‘finds’!  This pork chop dinner was courtesy of Pam and a recipe that she published on her blog site at

We like recipes that are fairly simple… Patience is not either of our virtues!  This pork chop entrée was easy to prepare.  We started with 3 nice thick boneless pork chops that we’d purchased at Costco.  We do like their meat!  As per the recipe, Laurie seasoned them with salt and pepper and then dredged them in flour.

She combined 1 cup of sour cream in a bowl with 1 cup of chicken stock, ¼ cup of vermouth, ¼ cup of ketchup, 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce, 1 ½ tablespoons of hot paprika and 1 tablespoon of caraway seeds.  Then she whisked it all together creating the sauce as shown above.

Note: The original recipe called for ¼ cup of dry sherry…we didn’t have any in the house.  It also gave you the option of using sweet or hot paprika.  We choose the latter as we like more spice, not less.  In any case, I’m not sure that that small amount of hot paprika made a difference.

Then Laurie heated 3 tablespoons of canola oil in her pan and I browned the seasoned chops.  Once the chops were browned, Laurie poured the sauce over the chops and we simmered them over low heat for approximately 50 minutes. 

We served them with lots of sauce and a side of peas.  The sauce went well with the peas too.  I think that we might use a little more hot paprika and try to slightly thicken up the sauce the next time we prepare this entrée.  However, Laurie and I both agreed that this recipe for Hungarian pork chops was a winner!

Here is a photo copy of Pam’s recipe from her blog site.  Alternatively you can go directly to her blog to obtain the recipe and to learn about paprika as well.  Just click on

That’s about it for now… Just click on any of the photos to enlarge them.

  2. Thanks for the nod, Dave! Glad you liked it. Not sure why the sauce looks a little thin. Raising the amount of flour or cooking time, should correct it. I agree with the spice and heat, Bill likes his not so spicy. It is finally starting to warm up here, woo hoo!

  3. Look so good David!
    I love Pam's blog!
    Take care!

  4. Dear Dave, Pam always makes the nicest dishes. These look and sound wonderful. Blessings, Catherine
