Chop, chop…don’t be a hater!

{Posted on May 24, 2011}

I’ve never been a huge fan of the pork chop. Fried, broiled, baked…they all seem to turn out dry and tasteless. Well, here’s my all-time favorite recipe that will turn you into a pork chop patron! The smell, flavor and fall-apart meat will certainly make you a convert…it did me!! (Thanks Kim S. for the inquiry and reminding me of this old-time gem, I hope you enjoy!) :-)

Stewed Pork Chops with Rice

1 1/2 lbs. boneless pork chops

1 medium onion, chopped

1/2 green pepper, chopped

1 large tomato, chopped

1 can sliced mushrooms

5 cloves garlic, chopped

1 can (low-sodium) tomato soup + 1 can of water

1 tbs basil

pinch of cayenne pepper


2 tbs olive oil

2 cups minute rice

In a large dutch oven, season chops and brown in olive oil on both sides. Set aside. In same pan, saute onions, green pepper and garlic until tender (10-15 min.). Add tomato, mushrooms, tomato soup, water and spices. Bring to a boil.

Turn heat to low, add pork chops and simmer covered for 1 1/2 hours.

Add rice and cook for an additional 15 minutes, or until rice is cooked and most juice is absorbed.

(These can also be made in a slow cooker!)
