Alsatian Rib-Sticking Pork Chop Casserole

Martha Price


Alsatian refers to the Alsace region of France.Unlike many French dishes, this one is not 'delicate', nor does it incorporate a cream sauce, as many French recipes do. It is a hearty, stick-to-your-ribs meal, perfect for the upcoming cooler weather! It is very tasty, and satisfying. Add a green salad and maybe buttered French bread and you have a great meal!

How to Make Alsatian Rib-Sticking Pork Chop Casserole


  1. Pre-heat oven to 300º.
  2. Fry 2 slices of the bacon in a large skillet until crisp; crumble and reserve. Trim excess fat from chops; brown in bacon drippings.
  3. Arrange half of the potatoes in a single layer in a deep baking dish or Dutch oven with lid, preferably earthenware or enameled cast iron. Top with half the onions; sprinkle with half the salt and pepper.
  4. Place chops over onions, overlapping if necessary, to form a single layer. Repeat with remaining potatoes and onions, salt and pepper. Crush caraway seeds; sprinkle over baking dish along with wine and garlic. Place remaing bacon over top. Cover with a double thickness of foil, then with lid.
  5. Roast in slow oven (300º)2 and 1/2 hours, or until meat and potatoes are tender.
    Discard bacon; skim off fat, if necessary. Sprinkle with parsley and crumbled bacon. Good!
