Cajun Pork and Rice Recipe

Publisher Photo
I created this recipe after returning home after traveling when I had little food in the house. I used ingredients already available in the refrigerator and pantry. My husband loves this pork dish because it's tasty, and I love it because it's easy. —Allison Gapinski, Cary, North Carolina
