Reviews for Creamy Pork Chop Casserole
"We all really liked this, but as a caution, my chops were very thick so I had to bake them longer and therefore it was not as creamy, although I could have added a little liquid to the rice mixture after baking. This is good company dish."
"The meat was raw and we had to fry in a frying pan after an hour of cooking. Will never make this again!!"
"My husband and I enjoyed this dish. I omitted the marinade for the pork. Before baking, I browned the chops in a nonstick skillet, then placed them over the rice/soup mixture. I omitted the red pepper (didn't have any) and omitted the cheese topping. Instead of peas and carrots, I used a cup of frozen mixed vegetables. The casserole is very creamy. When I first removed it from the oven I was afraid it was runny, but as it cooled 5 minutes or so it firmed up some. I'll make it again"
