One Pot Wonders- Pork Chops with Veggies

The following recipe has got to be my easiest, quickest, mid-week meal. The great thing is that it tastes like it takes more time than it does. In fact, this recipe is so easy you don't even really need a recipe. Here is what you do:

1. Take one pork chop per family member
2. Dice 1 carrot per family member (or a handful of baby carrots...even easier!)
3. Chop 1 potato per family member (if I use red potatoes, I don't even peel them)

Sprinkle the pork chops with Salt and Pepper and brown on both sides in a skillet.
After the pork chops are browned, pile the potatoes and carrots on top of each pork chop and add a little more salt and pepper to taste (go light on the salt since you will be adding beef broth). Then take a can of beef broth and pour over everything. Do it fast, cause it's going to steam!
Put the lid on the skillet, set a timer for 30 minutes and before you know it, dinner is served! Add a piece of bread with butter or a roll if you like. The other great thing about this meal is that it leaves very little to clean up. Even better when you are in a time crunch.
