Dutch Oven Pork Chops and Potatoes with Mushroom Sauce

On our recent trip to Bennett Springs, we had the most unusual weather. During the day it was blistering hot. During the evenings it was a cool 65. Almost like fall! The best part is that we were able to enjoy a fall-like meal, hot and hearty.  This time we made Dutch Oven Pork Chops with Potatoes and Mushroom Sauce.

Cooking with a Dutch oven isn't as hard as some have made it be.  There is a science behind it that helps you get the best results.  One is by placing coals in the proper place.  For example, for this dish, we want you to get the Dutch oven to 350 degrees. The number of coals placed on the bottom and the top is designed to do just that!  So pay attention to those numbers!

This was a filling, if not a pretty, meal. We both decided that putting our Dutch oven biscuits under the gravy would have been awesome!

Dutch Oven Pork Chops and Potatoes with Mushroom Sauce

Yield: 4
Author: Terri Steffes
Prep time: 7 MCook time: 1 hourTotal time: 1 H & 7 M
Made in a Dutch oven, this dish is perfect for camping.


  • 4 boneless pork chops
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 2 T butter
  • 1 c seasoned bread crumbs
  • 3/4 c water
  • 3 medium potatoes, sliced
  • 1 14.5 oz can cream of mushroom soup
  • seasoned salt and pepper


  1. Start your coals, and when they are gray, set your Dutch oven in the center and heat.
  2. Add olive oil.
  3. Season pork chops with seasoned salt and pepper.
  4. Brown the pork chops in the Dutch oven.
  5. In a separate pan, melt the butter, add the bread crumbs and 1/4 c of the water.  Stir together.  
  6. Spoon the bread crumbs over the pork chops.  
  7. Add the sliced potatoes on top of the bread crumbs.
  8. Mix the can of soup with 1/2 c water.  Stir well.  
  9. Pour the soup over the pork chops.
  10. Arrange 8 coals on the bottom of the firepit.  Place Dutch oven on coals. Put lid on Dutch oven and place 15 coals on top.  This should give you a temperature of 350.  Cook for 1 hour.  
  11. Test meat and potatoes for doneness.  If meat is cooked to your liking, remove coals from lid and take Dutch oven from firepit and place on the ground.  
  12. Rest for 5 minutes, then serve.


Boneless chops are recommended so that you don't have slivers of bone in the sauce. Slicing potatoes helps them cook faster.
