2 cups Frozen broccoli florets; thawed

Original recipe makes 4



Cook rice using package directions, omitting salt, margarine, and half the seasoning packet, for 8 minutes. Stir in broccoli; cover and cook for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside, still covered.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together jam and vinegar; set aside.

Heat a large, nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Remove from heat and spray with vegetable oil spray. Cook pork for 3 minutes. Turn pork over, sprinkle with rosemary, and cook for 3 minutes, or until lightly browned (pork won't be quite done). Remove from skillet.

Increase heat to high, and add blackberry mixture; bring to a boil. Boil for 1 minute; return pork and any juices to skillet. Cook for 1 minute; turn pork over and cook for 45 seconds.

To serve, put rice mixture on serving platter, top with pork, and spoon on remaining glaze.

Comment or review

The glaze gave the pork a nice sweet fruity taste, and since I like fruit on pork and chicken, this was right up my alley. Might even be better on chicken. By following the recipe, and only trying to cook up 1/2 the package, the water didn't get completely absorbed, and the broccoli was a bit mushy. Next time, I'll prepare the entire box of rice and just portion it out, and cook up some fresh veggies separately. [I posted this recipe.]
