An old friend gave me this recipe several years ago, the first time I made it my mother fell in love with it and she would make it so much, because it is so easy, that we all got sick of it. But it really is a good recipe if you don't over cook it.
- Place uncooked rice in bottom of a greased dish.
- Cover rice with sliced onion.
- Lay pork chops over onion and rice.
- Salt and pepper.
- Pour beef consomme and water over all.
- Bake in covered dish for 1 hour at 450 degrees F.
- I always decrease the rice it calls for because, we are not big rice eaters.
I am so in love with this recipe. I've made it so many times now that I have lost count! It's so easy to throw together and you can play around with the ingredients...maybe that's why I like it so much. I like to season the pork chops with salt/pepper/onion powder/garlic powder and then throw them in a buttered hot frying pan just to brown them to give the chops a nice color. I found that if you thinly slice a green bellpepper and put it with the onions you will have great results with the flavor. I stopped adding the water and just used 2 cans of the consomme instead. I just can't say it enough...I love this recipe. Thanks so much for sharing it with us.
Before I ever make any recipe, I always read each and every review, i dont care how many there are. Mainly because money is hard to come by and i dont want to take a chance on ruining any food.<br/>I made this recipe exactly the way it was written EXCEPT I added a little garlic powder in with the salt and pepper.<br/>That mess was the driest meat I have ever eaten. The rice was crusty it was so bad.<br/>I dont know how the folks that made this before gave it 5 stars...it was pitiful. Maybe the 450 for 1 hour is way too high heat....i doubt i ll even attempt it though. good luck to the next person that tries this.
I have made this recipe twice now and I have loved it both times. I cut down on the rice the 2nd time. 1/2 cup is plenty for 2 people. The chops were very moist. I loved the flavor of the beef consomme. It is so easy to make.....it would be nice to brown the pork chops, but that would defeat the "easy" part of this recipe.
