Sipout – 5th Generation Family Recipe

Growing up my mom would often make my brother and I this pork chop recipe following the hand-written recipe on an old, now yellow piece of paper. As I got older I was curious as to why she made the meal for us so often, what the significance behind that piece of paper was.


This recipe was hand written by my Nana after her mother-in-law (my great-grandmother) taught her how to make it. My great-grandmother is from Canada and learned the recipe from her mother. My family believes that it must go back even further than that, but we know that at the very least I am the 5th generation to be making this meal.

My mom made my brother and I this meal often, because her mom had made it for her so often and so forth. It’s a meal we make simply because it’s a family recipe and it all reminds us of our child hood.

I have made this meal for my little family and I plan on passing it down when the girl are old enough.

The Recipe: Sipout (One Pot)


  • 3 Pork Chops
  • 3 Chicken Breasts
  • 4 Onions; sliced
  • 8 Potatoes; sliced
  • All Spice
  • Cinnamon
  • Onion Powder


  • Cover bottom of pan with water
  • Layer meat, onions, and potatoes. Sprinkle spices.
  • Second layer of meat, onions, and potatoes. Sprinkle more spices
  • Cover and let cook for 1 hours on low heat
  • (Nana says you can use any meat you have on hand, add spices to your liking)



Layers of goodness.


Everything comes out super moist and juicy. Cinnamon and allspice develop a unique flavor with the pork chop and the entire house is enveloped with the smell of warm cinnamon. This is the perfect meal for a cold winter night.

Hope you enjoy this recipe from my family to yours!

  1. this is a variation of what we call six-Pates or six-layers of you prefer… this is a traditionnal plate that we have around Xmas or new year …. at the time french canadians had large families…. it consist or a layer of meat, another with potatoes in cube, and dough…. and you finish with a dough on top that makes a nice crust…. and bake for hours and hours making sure it s not drying …


    • Hi, Thank you for this information! Recipes and stories always change as they get passed down through generations, so its nice to hear another take on the recipe. My family has never made this with a crust but I will give it a try.

      Thanks, Nicole
