Old Faithful

Old Faithful created by morgainegeiser

This is an old, faithful family recipe from my mom and her mom and yes, "Old Faithful" is what they actually called it. It's a very easy, flexible, one-dish meal. Dry onion soup mix can be used instead of the Knorr Vegetable soup mix, water and the canned tomato juice instead of broth, chicken instead of pork chops, brown rice instead of white, Rotel tomatoes if you want a little heat, skip the tomatoes all together etc. Have fun trying it in all its forms and ENJOY!

    Very similar to a dish my mom made when I was a kid. I was actually trying to find THAT recipe when I came across this one! Even though I actually liked this recipe better than "mom's" I was on a mission for nostalgia's sake. I did find her recipe which was from a 50 year old Peg Bracken cookbook called "I hate to cook cookbook" Her version called for 6 T raw rice, One can chicken broth , 3 sliced tomatoes , 1 sliced onion, and 1/2 sliced green pepper. I will be making your version from now on! Thanks for sharing!

    This was a very good recipe, easy to make and quite flavorful. I followed the recipe as stated, only thing I might do next time is use regular rice that I already had, I used the Uncle Ben's rice recommended and it was very pricey and I think this will work fine with any type of rice. Made for PAC Spring '09
