Cumin lends a real Southwestern flair to this satisfying main dish sent by Loyse Keith, Enumclaw, Washington. The tender baked chops pick up extra flavor from the well-seasoned rice. "Sometimes I use celery instead of green pepper and boneless skinless chicken breasts instead of the pork chops," Loyse notes.
"I'm glad my sister-in-law shared the recipe for this coating mix for pork," says Margaret Welder. "It comes in handy when unexpected guests drop by, and it's wonderful on chicken, too." The Madrid, Iowa reader usually bakes the tender chops, but it's even quicker to cook them on the stovetop.
A quick homemade gravy adds the finishing touch to these tender pork chops stuffed with rice and colorful vegetables. Serve them with corn on the cob and Key lime pie (shown above right) or complete the meal with applesauce and bakery cookies.
In her West Monroe, Louisiana kitchen, Tonya Fitzgerald jazzes up store-bought Italian salad dressing with barbecue sauce and chili powder to make the easy marinade for these pork chops. They're simmered on the stove-top for just a few minutes, so they're on the table in no time.
"My mom gave me the recipe for these savory chops with a sweet and tangy marinade," relates Babette Watterson from Atglen, Pennsylvania. "The apple juice and Dijon mustard complement the pork nicely. With a vegetable and some rice or pasta, you have a meal."
A refreshing orange glaze perks up these colorful kabobs from Candy Gruman of Tucson, Arizona. "I serve this summery dish with baked potatoes and garlic bread," Candy says. "You could substitute some other vegetables if you like, but these are our favorites."
