Kathy, made this the other night and it was just the thing. Simple and satisfying. To jazz things up a bit I added some mushrooms and capers before cooking and a 1/2 c. of white wine in place of some of the water. Very tastey and easy.
This was very good but I used 3 and 1/2 cups of water and added a can of cream of mushroom soup and a small can of mushrooms to the rice and onion soup mix. I also added 30 min. To the cooking time. It was wonderful.
Made this for my family, and everyone LOVED it. I didn't brown the pork chops prior to cooking to save time and it was great. I love how easy it was and only uses one pot. I cooked this in a Le Creuset 5 1/2 quart round french oven with the lid on. I used others recommendations of adding 3 1/2 cups of water and it was perfect. The rice was flavorful and moist and the pork chops were wonderful. Depending on your taste you may want to add some black pepper, but it was just fine adding that at the table. I also only used 1/4 cup butter instead of 1/2 cup margarine.
This turned out wonderful! I usually make it with cream of mushroom or cream of chicken. But I prefer this way now! It was very very flavorful. I seasoned and floured then browned my chops on both sides. After laying the chops on top of the rice and water, I poured 1 packet of lipton onion soup mix over the chops. Wrapped tight with foil and cooked on 350 for an hour! Chops were soooo moist and flavorful and so was the rice. The only thing I wish I would have done is added more water for more of a sauce. It was still good and we loved it! Took a picture too! Also like the following review "This was very good but I used 3 and 1/2 cups of water and added a can of cream of mushroom soup and a small can of mushrooms to the rice and onion soup mix.

Thank you for posting! Added chopped onions and mushrooms. Turned out excellent!
this turned out quite tasty but I had to rescue it a tad. the water had been absorbed halfway through and was getting crispy and still had hard centers. I added an additional cup of water and let it cook the remaining time and all was well but it could have had a little more water still. What I will do next time is brown and lightly cook the chops and set aside with a cover on. I would use 2 1/2 C of water for each (1) CUP of rice, then the last 15-20 min II would take the foil off, place the chops on top and back for the remaining time uncovered. The flavors were nice and as simple as it is I will certainly make it again. Thanks, Kathy
Thanks for this post. My hubby loved it as well, and it was SUPER easy. The only changes I did was a splash of worchestershire (I can't spell that word!) and was thinking that next time I would throw in some mixed veggies to make it a true one pot wonder.
The pork was very moist and juicy! We also liked the flavor of the rice with the onion soup mix.
I really appreciate that this recipe is so easy and full of flavor. I will be making this again. Thanks!
so easy! I added chopped zuchinni eggplant & green peppers and topped the pork with 1/2 tin of chopped tomatoes. I also used fresh sage and only used 1/8 to 1/4C of chopped butter. tasty
