Today, Joan Crawford (1905-1977) is mostly known for "supposedly" beating her adopted daughter after the young girl used a wire hanger. However, what is not known is Joan enjoyed cooking and knew her way around a kitchen.
Here is one of Joan's recipes:
Joan Crawford’s Pork Chops with Red Onions and Apple Rings
(for four to six)
6 loin pork chops, one inch thick
¼ pound margarine or butter
2 large Italian red onions, sliced
1 cup flour
Lawry’s Seasoned Salt
Salt chops on both sides. Dip lightly in flour. Place chops in ¼ pound melted butter or margarine in skillet. Add sliced onions and cook till golden. When onions are cooked, place on top of chops. Brown chops on one side, then turn, replacing onions on the top side.
Place chops in skillet in preheated 250° oven. Cover. Cook 15 minutes. Then reduce oven heat to 200° and bake for an additional 25 minutes. Top each chop with 2 fried apple rings...
