    Baby Kato's Note:

    My dh loves pork chops, me not so much. This is one recipe that we both agree on, the pork chop is moist and tender with a delicious sauce. Its quick and easy and is a great week day meal.

      Excellent pork chop dish. I don't have minute rice, so I cooked long grain rice in my rice cooker with the chicken broth. I sauteed the onion and steamed the broccoli and added it to the rice. To make it more diabetic friendly, I used sugar-free honey substitute in place of the maple sugar. I also added a little crushed red pepper flake. Tender, juicy, flavorful pork chops on top of a bed of delicious rice. I will be making this often. Made for December 2012 Aus/NZ Swap.

      My husband said this is exceptional. Since I don't much care for the par cooked rice, I used regular, cooked the broccoli separately, then combined the two. The sauce was very tasty. I toasted up some pine nuts and I must recommend the nuts be used, regardless of what type. They add that little something extra to the dish. Made for New Kids on the Block Tag game. :)
