Mary's Pork Chops

Recipe by  

"This is a one-pot dish that my mother-in-law has made for years. It's very simple and extremely tasty. You could substitute chicken for the pork, or use orzo pasta instead of rice. It can also be made ahead and frozen for the days when you don't want to cook."

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large iron skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Season pork chops with a little salt and pepper, then brown them in the hot oil on both sides. Remove the chops to a plate, and add the syrup, tomato sauce, and tarragon. Reduce heat to medium-low, and when the sauce mixture is warm, return the pork chops to the sauce, and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the chops are cooked through.
  2. Remove the chops from the sauce, and set aside, keeping warm. Add the rice to the sauce, cover, and cook until rice is tender, about 10 minutes. Serve rice and sauce with pork chops over the top.

I loved it. I am not a big pork chop fan at all. This is absolutely delicious. My fiancee & can't believe how good a little tomato sauce and maple syrup make the pork chops. Highly recommended!

Unbelieveable what pancake syrup and tomato sauce can do for pork chops. My family loved it.

Excellent!! My husband and I thought it was very flavorful. I added extra pepper. The one thing that I did change was the rice. I used brown rice already made up and just added it to the sauce and heated it together. The pork was tender. I used boneless pork chops. We will make it again.

Pressed for time, no time to shop, so searched for a recipe by ingredients I had on hand. This fit that category, however I was a skeptic. Wow! Husband raved and I loved it to. Next time I will top browned Pork chops with onion slices before simmering in sauce. Otherwise 5 stars.
