An easy one-dish meal.
- 4 pork chops
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1 (38 1/2 g) envelope dry onion soup mix
- 1 cup frozen mixed vegetables
- 1 cup uncooked rice
- 2 cups beef broth, heated
- Brown chops in oil.
- Spread rice in rectangular baking dish (11x7-inches). Add frozen vegetables. Reserve one tablespoon of dry soup mix. Sprinkle remaining soup mix over rice.
- Pour heated beef broth over rice and mix ingredients together.
- Arrange pork chops on top of rice mixture and sprinkle with reserved onion soup mix. Cover tightly with foil and bake in moderate oven (350 F) until tender (45 minutes to 1 hour), depending on thickness of chops. Remove foil and continue cooking for 10 minutes or until any excess liquid has evaporated.
Enjoyed this, will make again. Only problems were I only cooked it a total of 40 minutes covered and the pork was a little dry, and when I took the foil off thinking I needed to cook it another 10 minutes all the liquid was already absorbed. Next time I will use 1 1/2 cups beef broth. But it was very tasty and we ate all of it!
Easy casserole to put together and the pork chops did come out tender but it was WAY too salty for our tastes. I cut the recipe in half and only used 1/2 an envelope if that and it was still salty. Oh well, it was tender. Made for PAC Spring 2014.
I scratch cook as much as I can, so I just used the basic idea of this recipe for my dish. I used fresh vegetables and added some home dried herbs to it, and instead of beef broth I used chicken broth from a natural chicken paste I buy. I browned the pork, cut up, with some garlic. It turned out great. Flavourful, not salty (which is what you get when you buy packaged soup mixes) with tender meat and fluffy rice. I'll only give it 3 stars because while I was very happy with my version, I still must find fault with the online recipe for using frozen veggies and the onion soup mix. I should also mention that I did not need to bake uncovered to get rid of excess moisture and I think that is due to my using fresh vegetables and not frozen. Frozen veggies have a habit of adding unwanted moisture to a recipe.
