How to Make Oven-Fried Pork Chops

Frying pork chops doesn't sound quick and easy, but this recipe takes less than an hour to prepare. Once you taste the results, you'll never be tempted to just stop for a meal on your way home again.

Remove a narrow strip of peel from center of each new potato. Place potatoes and carrots in a 3-1/2 to 4-quart slow cooker. Brown both sides of lamb chops, a few at a time, in hot oil in a large skillet. Drain off fat. Place lamb chops on vegetables. Pour in water; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of the fresh or 1/4 teaspoon of the dried dillweed, the salt, and pepper.
Cover; cook on low-heat setting for 7 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3-1/2 to 4 hours.
Transfer chops and vegetables to a serving platter. Cover chops and vegetables to keep warm.
For the sauce, strain cooking liquid into a glass measuring cup; skim fat from cooking liquid. Measure 1/2 cup cooking liquid. Combine yogurt and flour in a small saucepan. Stir in cooking liquid and remaining 1 teaspoon fresh or 1/4 teaspoon dried dillweed. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 1 minute more. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper. Serve chops and vegetables with sauce. Garnish with additional fresh dillweed, if desired. Makes 3 servings.
