Easier Chops and Rice

9/18/2008 Tonight I experimented a bit with pork chops and rice, and hit a home run for taste and knocked it out of the park for being the world's quickest and easiest dinner. My husband devoured it, and told me "thank you for that delicious supper." (as if I had slaved over it in the kitchen for hours) and even my 19 month old ate his entire plate worth. This was fantastic, and prep time was less than 5 minutes. This recipe turned into an experiment when I "forgot" to buy all of the ingredients for Chop & Rice, and I didn't want to mess with frying the original recipe...thus the creation of a new one.

Here's how I made Pork Chops and Rice

  • a package of pork chops - I used bone in
  • 1 box of Uncle Ben's Long Grain and Wild Rice - Original
  • pepper & garlic powder to taste


  1. Empty box of rice and included seasoning mix into 9"X13" baking pan, and add water according to box (2 1/4 cups).
  2. Put pork chops on top, overlapping if necessary. They may be fully or partially under water.
  3. I sprinkled a bit of garlic powder on top and added some freshly ground black pepper, then covered the pan tightly with foil, and baked it in a 350 oven for an hour.

I actually took the baby outside to play, and left it in the oven a bit longer, but it was truly delicious, and the pork chops were so tender than they fell apart as I picked them up with a fork. Since this was just an experiment, I was shocked that it turned out so good, and took less than 2 minutes to prepare.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we did! It's sure to become a staple around our house.
