This recipe combines two family favorites—pork and rice. It's a traditional type of meal I've come to rely on for my hurried, hectic weekdays and for casual entertaining.

Ingredients

  • 6 boneless pork chops (3/4 inch thick)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste, optional
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of broccoli soup, undiluted
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. In a skillet, brown pork chops in butter; season with salt and pepper if desired. Remove from the skillet and set aside. Reserve 2 tablespoons drippings; add rice, onion and garlic. Mix well. Stir in soup, water, cheese, pepper and salt.
  2. Transfer to a greased 13x9-in. baking dish; arrange chops over rice mixture. Cover and bake at 350° for 1 hour; uncover and bake 15 minutes longer or until rice is tender and pork juices run clear.
