This Baked Pork Chops and Rice recipe is home cooking at its best. Flavorful seasoned rice and onions baked with seasoned bone-in pork chops.
BAKED PORK CHOPS AND RICE
TIPS FOR MAKING THIS EASY DINNER MEAL:
- You don't want to use quick cooking rice for this recipe - it would turn out too gummy. You can substitute the white rice for brown if you prefer. I haven't tried it with cauliflower rice so I can't say how that would turn out.
- Make sure both sides of the pork chops are seasoned well with salt, black pepper and garlic powder.
- It's also important you get a good browning on these pork chops. Don't cook the pork chops all the way through. Get the skillet really hot and quickly brown each side. This adds a lot of flavor and color to the final dish!
- I like to serve this with some steamed broccoli as an additional side dish and maybe some FRENCH BREAD.
