  • Place pork chops on a lightly greased large square of aluminum foil. Place potatoes and corn around chops. Pour soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and water over all. Then distribute the onion and garlic amongst the chops and veggies; top by sprinkling bread crumbs and dry seasonings of your choice over all.

  • Close foil around all and seal tightly. Place foil pouch in a 9x13 inch baking dish lines with another sheet of aluminum foil, in case of spilling. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. The pouch provides 'self-basting', so you need only remove from the oven and serve!

Partner Tip

Made this last night. It was unbelievably delicious!! Added almost a full garlic (minced) per bag generous oregano garlic salt & black pepper & 3-4 shakes of the sauces--on each. Put the seasonings on everything not just the chops. Also sliced the onions (added lots) rather than diced. Cut the potatoes in small quarter sizes & put in 2 corn pieces (no more than 2 inches long). Baked at 350 for almost 90 minutes--had thick no bone chops. IT WAS PERFECT! No mess no drips and no clean up. Absolutely fabulous!!! Read More

It was very good however I doubled the cooking time and the potatoes were still hard. Recommendations: Place the chops directly on the foil it absorbs the flavoring and browns delicious. Cook it at a higher temperature I boosted it up to 375 for the second 45 minutes. Consider substituting the corn (cooks fastest) with something that won't dry out with the longer cooking time (I'm trying beans and potatoes next time). And lastly CUT THE POTATOES SMALL. After 1.5 hours the small ones were so tasty and perfect. Read More

This was really good!! I love the no clean up! I read the other reviews so I cooked the potatoes in the micro for about 6 minutes first. They came out perfect after baking. I also cooked for 50 minutes but it really was 5 too long. I used a pork tenderloin instead of chops and added mushrooms. Everything was flavored wonderfully!! Will make again Thanks!! Read More

I made 4 individual packets. I nuked red potatoes for 6 minutes used 1 ear of corn broken in half for each packet. I would probably use more onion next time. I grilled these over med/high for about 10 minutes each side chops were nice & moist. YUMMY!!! new way to make chops...oh and I didn't use the bread crumbs. Read More

Very good! For everyone upset about the potatoes- Nuke them in the microwave for about 5 minutes while you prepare everything else. They come out great that way! I added Mrs. Dash spicy mix and Essence of Emeril on top and a couple of splashes of Tabasco to suit our tastes. My two boy roommates wolfed every last bit down! They want me to make it again! Thanks!! Read More

It was... ok. I did pre-boil the potatoes which was good. It was a nice country meal nothing spectacular a bit bland. Yet if you are in a hurry you might enjoy this quick meal preparing only takes about 10 minutes and the oven does the rest. Worth a try besides not everybody's tastes are the same. Read More

Very good and very easy. The chops I used were humongous so I ended up having to cook this about twice what the recipe calls for but they came out juicy and yummy. I added corn and carrots both came out fine but it did cook for 1.5 hours rather than 45 mins so if I was using smaller chops I'd probably cut them into tinier pieces. Next time I will try with mushrooms and other veggies. Thanks! Read More

I used different seasonings frozen corn and chunks of celery instead of potatoes because most of the reviews said that the cooking time was to short to soften them properly. This couldn't be more true. The celery was still very crunchy and even my onions were borderline raw. All and all a good idea but needs more cooking time. Read More

I enjoyed this recipe very much. It was easy to make very flavorful and there was little mess. I did alter the recipe a bit based on the previous reviews and what was in my kitchen. I cut the potatoes smaller than recommended in the original recipe and I used three different types of potatoes (red potatoes white potatoes and yellow buttery potatoes) to get a range of taste. I did not have Worcestershire sauce so I used lemon juice. I put a tablespoon of each of the following items in each foil packet: soy sauce lemon juice and water. For dry spices I used garlic salt oregano lemon pepper and black pepper. I also added carrots to the foil packet. My husband and I both enjoyed it. The one other thing I will probably change in the future is to remove the breadcrumbs. To me they did not seem to add anything to the recipe. Read More
