Reviews for One-Pot Pork and Rice
"I added 1 can, 14.5 oz, small diced and 1 can, 14.5 oz, stew tomatoes and it turned out flavorfull. The stew tomatoes had herbs. My wife said she wants me to make that dish anytime I want. She took the left overs to work for lunch. I cooked the chops in the dutch oven and bowned the rice on the chops drippings. I then transferred everything to a baking dish and baked it in the dish instead of the dutch oven it came out very moist. Next time I want to try my cast iron large skillet to bake it"
"This is a really simply recipe thats good for a week night dinner but the flavor is nothing special."
"Great concept but needs a little help. 1 hour was way too long for the pork chops - they were dry as a bone. Both rice and chops need a lot more seasoning. But with some adjustments, this could be a winner. Will try again."
"My family loved it. I did have to bake it a little longer for the rice to be done."
"I accidentally bought a can of crushed tomatoes instead of diced, but it came out fine. I also used chicken broth instead of the water for more flavor."
