While it was snowing outside we were cooking inside....
Pork Chops n' Potatoe Sauce (right) and Cherry Cobbler (left) in cast iron skillets in the fireplace.

Those are cast iron skillets that belonged to my grandparents.
They did a lot of camping and probably used them over a campfire.
Cast Iron - at least 80 years old and still works good.

Directions for Pork Chops n' Potatoe Sauce in 10" Cast Iron Skillet

2 pork chops
1 potatoe in 1/4" slices
1 medium yellow onion sliced
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 can water

Add 1/8" EVOO to empty Cast Iron Skillet
Brown pork chops both sides.
Move pork chops to one side. Add onions and saute.
Put back pork chops, onions on top.
Potatoe slices over onions.
Add water and soup mix over all.
Simmer untill chops and potatoes are fork tender.
Check Chops for 165F with instant thermo. About 45 - 60 minutes.


Directions for Dessert - Cherry Cobbler in 10" Cast Iron Skillet

2 20oz cans of cherry filling
1 1/3 cups sugar
1 1/3 cups flour
1 1/3 cups oatmeal
1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional
2/3 cup butter
3/4 tsp vanilla

Directions:
To help with clean up, line your Cast Iron skillet with heavy duty foil.
Pour the cherry pie filling into the Cast Iron skillet and spread it over the bottom.
In a bowl, mix together the sugar, flour, oatmeal, and pecans.
Add your vanilla.
Cut the butter into pieces that are about 1 tbsp in size. Mix into the sugar/flour/oatmeal mixture.
You might need to use your hands or a pastry cutter. Spread this topping over the cherries.
Put the lid on the Cast Iron skillet and bake the cobbler for about 45 - 60 minutes.
Check and see if the crust is brown and the cherries bubbly. If so, then it is done!
Serve this with whipped cream, optional.

That sure looks good! I'd even skip the chops just for a bowl of cobbler.:drooling:

Paul, you may be a savior. For years we ate pork chops baked in rice and mushrooms soup. We usually added a little chopped onion and sometimes a few mushrooms. I got the recipe either off a Campbell's can or a MInute rice box. It was one of those "I'll never gorget hoe to make this stuff" deals so I never wrote it down.

Then we went a few years w/o making it, and one day when I had a craving for it, I couldn;t remember the proportions, baking time, etc.

What we especially like was the crunchy brown that developed around the edges and on the bottom.

I have tried guessing at the proportions more times than I can count. I have been in contact with both companies and checked their archives, I have asked many but never have I been able to duplicate it.

Does my description fit what you are talking about?

If so, can you give me the recipe?

My cravings got the best of me.

Whnat I was going to say until Paul stirred my memory is that it all looks great. What did you do to the beans?
