How To Make maltese baked pork chops and potatoes

  • 1
    Choose an oven dish that is big enough to take the meat and the potatoes.
  • 2
    Start by placing all the sliced onions at the bottom of the dish, spread them all across the dish so that they'll form a nice first layer.
  • 3
    Crush the chicken cube or cut it into small pieces and sprinkle all over the onions.
  • 4
    Add the meat by putting all the pork chops on top of the onions.
  • 5
    Sprinkle the seasonings over the meat.
  • 6
    Add all the potatoes and place on top of the meat. Sprinkle with salt, pepper.
  • 7
    Add water from the sides of the dish so as not to wash away the spices. Add enough water so that the onions and meat are covered with water.
  • 8
    Roast in moderate oven for some 2 and a half hours. For the first hour, cover the dish in tin foil. After that, remove the foil so that the potatoes will eventually become crusty and golden brown.
