Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp salted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups long grain rice
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • salt, pepper and garlic powder (to taste)
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 4 bone-in pork chops
  • 3 1/2 cups beef stock
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425F degrees.
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add in butter until it starts to melt, then add in rice along with celery and onion.
  • Stir and cook until rice begins to brown slightly and onion and celery soften just a bit.
  • Then put rice mixture into bottom of 9 x13 baking dish.
  • Pour beef stock over rice.
  • Add in Worcestershire sauce (if using).
  • Using that same skillet, over high heat, add in a couple tbsp. vegetable oil.
  • Season both sides of pork chops with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
  • Place 2 pork chops in skillet at a time and brown both sides.
  • You aren't cooking them all the way through. You just want to get a nice brown color on both sides (about 2 minutes per side).
  • Follow the same process for the last 2 pork chops.
  • Place pork chops on top of rice mixture in baking dish.
  • Cover baking dish with aluminum foil.
  • Place in oven and bake for about 35-40 minutes.
  • The rice should be tender and the liquid absorbed and pork chops should be thoroughly cooked to 145F degrees.

Notes

Updated to add: You can use 3 1/2 cups of water with 4 beef bouillon cubes instead of the beef stock. Some people felt that more liquid was needed to fully cook the rice so I have adjusted the recipe from 3 cups to 3 1/2 cups. Adjust as needed.
