This one from the 70s - not for the purists, and definitely sweet tasting! but very tender (and fatty). No actual recipe:

Brown a few shoulder chops and sliced onions, place in casserole dish, pour over a packet of Maggi brown onion soup mixed with a cup or so of cold water and a generous dollop of mint jelly or sauce. Cover and cook in slow oven for .I'm guessing. 1.5 - 2 hours.

And if you're really adventurous, throw in some large chunks of potato. :)

there is one in the diabetic baking thread I'll bump it for you. It is my grandmothers one so probably from much earlier than the 70's
