At the end of this meal, The Pork Chops Won't Be the Only Happy Ones
"I made this tonight and it was a big hit with my guests. I used 3 thick cut chops and 1 thin cut chop just to see if there was any difference. Definitely go with the thick cut chops! They were much juicier and more tender than the thin cut chop. I poked a few holes in each chop before browning them. I recommend browning them for a bit longer than the recipe says; I also took them out of the pan with the rice mixture and browned them again right before I served them -- I would recommend doing that. I also added some cumin, cayanne pepper, and doubled the jalapenos. Great recipe, easy to make!"- LarissaTrue

mybbygrl 1 month agoJust so-so. I love flavor, and this was too bland for me. I added crushed red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper, and chili powder. Spicy enough, just not very flavorful.

RuLane 8 months agoPork chops with leftovers mid-week...this kicked ass. Quick, easy and adaptable. I was only cooking for 2, so reduced proportions accordingly although ended up adding more water to keep the chops/rice succulent. Also, didn't have tomatoes so sliced up a red pepper and added (ssshhh) a squirt of tomato ketchup! Epic and better 'colours'. Great meal which I'll be doing for 6 later this week.
andreskris 9 months agoThe rice tastes divine, but the porkchops end up really tough because of the salt.
cook646 12 months agoThis was really good. I seasoned the chops with salt, pepper, & garlic before I seared them. I added portobello mushrooms & small red & yellow diced peppers to the rice along with a little ancho chile ppowder.

mmcarney 2 years agoVery nice recipe. Especially liked the flavorful rice.
dakotarussell 3 years agoThis was a quick dish to prepare and fun to make. The porkchops came out tender and the rice had a good flavor. Next time I'll rub a little salt and pepper on the chops before searing, and maybe stir a dash of each into the rice before putting the chops back in at the end. Otherwise, it's perfect.
Beckysplace 3 years agoThe rice was scrumptious but the pork chops were chewy. Not really a fan of steamed chops. I pan fried a pork chop separately for a picky eater and was told that pork chop was melt-in-your-mouth tender. The rest were not. Next time I'd pan fry the chops and add them to the pan for just a few minutes after they were completely cooked.
captaindes 5 years agoThis recipe was pretty simple and quite good. I used three jalapenos, but almost nothing is too hot for me. The rice was perfectly done and the loin chops I used were tender and tasty.
