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
Top-ranked recipe named "Chuletas Contentas (Happy Pork Chops)"
Heat oil in large skillet; add pork. Sear pork on both sides on medium-high heat just until brown, about 1 minutes on each side. Remove from skillet and cover loosely with foil.
Add garlic and onions to skillet. Cook and stir until tender, about 2 minutes, scraping up brown bits from bottom of skillet. Add rice, stirring constantly until rice just begins to brown, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add tomatoes, jalapeo chiles, beer and broth or water. Bring to boil; cover. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer 10 minutes.
Place pork on top of rice; cover. Simmer 8 or 9 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro if desired.

mybbygrl 2 months 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 9 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 10 months agoThe rice tastes divine, but the porkchops end up really tough because of the salt.
cook646 1 year 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.
