Mushroom Pork Chops

I didn't want to buy much for dinner, and the fella was wanting pork (insert your own dirty joke here).  I found this recipe and thought it couldn't possibly be good, but it was so easy, and had so many rave reviews that I had to give it a whirl.  All I had to buy was three ingredients - score!
Served on a bed of mashed sweet potatoes (with a bit of fake butter & salt mixed in), and my pathetic attempt at Aylene's Green Beans, and it was nomsville.

Mushroom Pork Chops
2 thick cut pork chops, butterflied into 4 thin (the thick cut fresh chops were on sale for about half the price of the pre-packaged thin ones and momma didn't raise no fool)
salt & pepper
garlic powder
1 onion, chopped
1 styrofoam package of sliced mushrooms to make life easy (8 oz.)
1 small can of condensed cream of mushroom soup

Season both sides of pork with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Sear on each side on for a couple of minutes in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the onion and mushrooms, pour cream of mushroom soup over the top.  Cover and reduce temperature to medium low.  Simmer 20-30 minutes, poking and stirring occasionally.
