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!
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.
This was so delicious even though I changed the recipe a little. I cut up lean pork and I added a frozen bag of peas and mushrooms with garlic. I didn't have any beef broth so I used chicken broth. I also browned the pork with onions and garlic. It was perfection!! I am definitely making this again.
We really liked this, I did not have any Lipton onion soup mix so I used recipe #153788<br/>copycat recipe (with better than bouillon rather than powdered which gave the rice better flavor) Cooked for exactly 1 hour covered with no additional cooking for the rice. The chops were perfectly moist. Thanks for posting!
Mar 24 - This was really good. I used a smaller casserole dish and only 2 pork chops but the same amount of rice. I also used the rest of a package of what I think was fajita mix, instead of the onion soup mix. Finally, I used chicken stock instead of beef. This recipe was a great jumping off point for my dinner and as you can see, it can be altered to use what you have handy in your pantry! I would definitely use this recipe again. Yum! Mar29- Made this again (yes so soon!). This time I used stewing beef, chicken stock, hot'n'spicy fried rice seasoning (Sunbird), and GG Frzn Japanese Mixed Veg. Good Stuff!
