"This is my favorite pork chop recipe. The rice is both colorful and flavorful, and the chops are so tender that they fall off the bone."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Season pork chops with salt, pepper, and paprika. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Saute the garlic about 1 minute, then brown pork chops about 2 minutes on each side.
  3. In a pot, bring the vegetable broth and rice to a boil. Mix in the Italian-style diced tomatoes, green bell pepper, orange bell pepper, green onions, and mushrooms, and cook about 5 minutes, until heated through. Transfer to a 9x13 inch baking dish. Arrange the pork chops over the rice and vegetables.
  4. Cover, and bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until rice and vegetables are tender and pork has reached an internal temperature of 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

The rice was extremely flavorful and colorful. Next time I will put the rise mixture over the chops instead of the chops over the rice.

I loved this recipe. The rice was very tasty. I used chicken broth, because I had it on hand. Also I didn't have mushrooms, but used shredded carrots. Almost any veggie would be good. This is my new favorite pork chop recipe. So nice to not have cream of mushroom soup in it.

Very Good. I love the caserol idea. Easy clean up. I totally tweaked the recipe though and made it into a sort of spanish rice (was simply in the mood).I added some onion and cooked it with some garlic. Then cooked the rice a little. I replaced the canned tomatoes with a tomato sauce and added about 1 tsp. of Cummin. Made the dish rich and comforting.

The rice recipe is good, and I don't usually even really like rice! The pork chops are just okay, and a little bland. I added lots of fresh garlic and fresh tomatoes (instead of canned) to the rice. I think in the future I would cook the pork chops another way and serve the rice on the side.

I , DUE TO MY HUSBAND DISLIKING THE COOKED TOMATOES ,MAKE ONE VERY SIMILIAR. BROWN THE SEASONED CHOPS AND PLACE IN BAKING DISH . DICE UP PEPPERS , ONIONS AND CARROTS (ADD MUSHROOMS , IF YOU LIKE , CANNED OR FRESH ).SAUTE' TIL SOFTENED , THEN ADD RICE (I CUP ) , MIX WITH VEGIES , SPOON OVER CHOPS . I USE I CAN BEEF CONSOMME' ( USE WHAT EVER YOU LIKE ) AND 1 CUP HOT WATER ... POUR TOGETHER OVER THE CHOP MIXTURE . COVER AND BAKE AT 350 FOR 1 HOUR . SIMPLE AND EVERYONE , OF ALL AGES ,LOVES IT .

This was a BIG hit and very easy. I'm always looking for the one-dish dinners to make on busy nights. I did have to alter a little bit b/c I only had instant (Uncle Ben's in the bag rice). I cooked the rice in the bag in the microwave and par-boiled broccoli in chicken broth for 5 min. Then I added red pepper and fresh tomatoes (chopped). I drained most of the broth and mixed the rice and veggies together with a little bit of the broth to keep it from drying out. The rest was followed as directed and it was delicious.

Thank you for a recipe with rice and pork chops that DID NOT have condensed soup in the mix! We enjoyed this recipe. I would kick up the rice mixture a little more next time with more onions and fresh garlic with the rice. I would also make sure that your pork has a little bit of fat on it, so the chops don't dry out! I used brown rice and it turned out perfectly. Thanks for the great recipe!
