Rhubarb Pork Chop Casserole Recipe

Rhubarb Pork Chop Casserole Recipe

The usual reaction to this casserole is that it's a nice mix of sweet and tart—and a quite unusual use of rhubarb! I like rhubarb, but I'm not a dessert person. So I always though there should be more to it than pies and cobblers.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless pork loin chops (3/4 inches thick and 4 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2-1/2 to 3 cups soft bread crumbs
  • 3 cups sliced fresh or frozen rhubarb (1-inch pieces)
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, brown pork chops in oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Remove and keep warm. Mix 1/4 cup pan drippings with bread crumbs. Reserve 1/2 cup; sprinkle remaining crumbs into a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
  • 2. In a large bowl, combine the rhubarb, sugar, flour and cinnamon; spoon half over the bread crumbs.
  • 3. Arrange pork chops on top. Spoon remaining rhubarb mixture over chops. Cover with foil and bake at 350° for 30-45 minutes. Remove foil. Sprinkle with reserved bread crumbs. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reaches 160°. Yield: 4 servings.
