Budget.Gourmet's picture
  Bacon slices 6
  Pork loin chops 4 (1 Inch Thick)
  Boiling potatoes 4 Large, pared and thinly sliced
  Onions 2 Medium, thinly sliced
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Caraway seeds 1 Teaspoon
  Dry white wine 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), lightly crushed
  Chopped parsley 1 Tablespoon

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