Vintage Recipe: Luncheon Pork Chops

I'm digging into old recipe boxes and rediscovering the family favorites hidden inside! You'll find carefully handwritten recipe cards, newspapers and magazines clippings and even some hastily scrawled directions on scraps of paper, all from years (and years) ago! They're all getting scanned and transcribed so you can enjoy them in your own home kitchen. 

This recipe for Luncheon Pork Chops was handwritten in pencil on an index card that had been darkened with time. It was found in  an old small red metal recipe box worn with age. The recipe card is dated “1-1-39”.

The first ingredient given is “1/2 cup of corn”. I wonder if that is supposed to be “cornmeal” instead of “corn”.

The original recipe has been scanned and is transcribed below. It can be printed for use in your own home kitchen. Enjoy!
