Pork Chops Over Rice Recipe

If you asked my husband to name his favorite foods, he'd likely mention these chops. I've also served this appealing skillet supper to company. Ever since I clipped the recipe out of the paper many years ago, it's become a standard in my kitchen. We live in a semi-rural area with two horses and six cats!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 8 boneless pork loin chops (4 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen peas
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme


  • 1. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown pork chops in oil; remove. Add the remaining ingredients to the pan; top with pork chops.
  • 2. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until rice is tender. Yield: 8 servings.

"I would not make this recipe again. It is a very dry dish, even though I added the pork chops halfway as suggested by others. It's really just dry seasoned rice with plain porkchops... I'll stick with recipes with cream soups added next time. I did make a quick gravy to serve with this at the last minute - my husband and son ate it without the usual compliments.

Also, there was too much thyme - IMHO"

"This was great and so easy to make. I liked that I didn't have to use the oven on a warm/hot day. I used the suggestion of LilAmyLou and simmered the rice mixture for about 10 to 12 minutes before adding the pork chops back to the skillet. I didn't have any frozen peas so I used frozen broccoli instead. My family said to keep using the broccoli. I cut back the thyme to 1/4 teaspoon (personal taste) and used home make chicken broth. I also used only 2 large pork chops as we are not big meat eaters. This left enough rice to have for lunch the next day. Will definitely make this again ."

"I read the reviews about the pork being dry so I changed it just a bit. I browned the pork chops in butter instead of oil, seasoned with salt and pepper. I doubled the amount of rice and liquids, seasoned it with dried minced onion and pepper, and I kept the same amount of peas. I left the pork on a plate and cooked the rice for about 13 minutes. Then I added the pork and continued cooking for another 12 minutes or so. Perfect!"

"I make this often, but I used a medium to large onion and a bit of butter. I also use frozen sugar snap peas instead of green peas. If you half the recipe, it's a perfect fit for two -- my husband always wants to chops, and and I have an extra for the next day's lunch. I haven't had a problem with the pork chop being dry, but maybe quartering an onion and adding it during the simmering with the lid on would help add moisture. Just a thought."

"I have to say that this one wasn't a winner for us. The pork chops were a little dry, and the rice mixture was really bland. While I might play with the seasonings and chop thickness, as it stands, I likely wouldn't make this one again."

"My pork chops came out a bit dry as well. But overall this has great flavor! I did use fresh thyme, since I had some in my herb garden. Next time I make it, I think I'll lightly sprinkle the chops with salt & pepper prior to browning."

"This was really good - great flavor! My whole family loved it. The pork chops were a tad dry, but I think it was my fault."
