1/3
cup milk
2
tablespoons chopped pimientos
1

Expert Tips

Brown the pork chops before adding them to the casserole for added flavor—and a jump-start on the cooking.

The recipe calls for browning the pork chops without oil, for a leaner casserole. Cut the fat a little further by using reduced-fat soup and fat-free (skim) milk.

"Hiding" the pork chops under the rest of the ingredients during bake-time keeps them moist and juicy.
