When I make this recipe, I omit the oil and add cream of mushroom soup and a can of peas. I spread the cream soup on the bottom of the pan, sprinkle the onion soup mix over top, then the can of drained peas, then the rice then the browned chops. Then pour boiling water over top. The cream soup mixes with the onion soup and then comes up through the rice and over the chops. I also use 1 1/2 cups of long grain rice for the 3 cups of water. Yummy

Rice tasty but my thick pork chops were so dry even with 45 minutes of baking with lid on and at a lower temperature . Needs a gravy to eat it and definatly less time at baking.Maybe 25 minutes would have sufficed. Sorry won't be saving this recipe

Double the recipe and added one more pork chop for my large family baked in a large baking pan. Thought the onion soup might overpower but they sweetened up. Turned out pretty yummy but the one pork chop on top got a bit dry. The others that were "under neath" were tender and delicious. Thank belveal. I will be making this again

4 stars for a soup recipe is pretty good although this one is almost a 3. The rice ( I used Basmati ) had a wonderful flavour but was perhaps just ten minutes overcooked. I'd suggest 1/3 cup less water and 10 minutes less cooking. The chops were delicate and juicy but not all that flavourful so next time I'll brine before searing and ramp up the soup mix with a caramelized onion/beef broth reduction. A little extra salt wouldn't hurt either.

I followed the recipe exactly and it was yummy! It was very tender and flavorful, and my rice was perfectly done. My husband and 13 month old gobbled it up. I will be making this again.

I seasoned the pork chops with salt, pepper, and garlic before browning. I also added a can of cream of mushroom soup to the rice mixture before topping with the pork. Very good recipe!
