This was very delicious. I used wild rice that I had already cooked, and added my own spice mixture of garlic and onion powder, celery salt, and paprika. Thank you KC, this is a delicious and healthy way to prepare pork.
This was a great weeknight dinner. I cooked the porkchops in the oven as we wanted them a little crispy, but made the rice following the directions....loved it....
