Pork & Rice Casserole

I hope everyone had a great Christmas! Mine was wonderful! I enjoyed spending time with my family! To start the New Year off I decided to cook this Pork Chop & Rice Casserole. It was savory and delicious! I will undoubtedly make this one again!

Pork Chop & Rice Casserole

Ingredients:

2 C. rice, uncooked (I used minute rice, but any rice will work, just adjust cooking time a bit)

3 1/2 C. water

5 Tbsp. butter, cut into 1 tbsp. slices

1 envelope Lipton Onion Soup mix

4-5 pork chops (boneless or bone-in work)

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350.

1. Spread the one tablespoon of butter all over a 9 x 13 baking dish to “grease” the pan. Place rice on bottom of pan. Add in water and gently stir around. Take remaining butter slices and place on top of rice. Place the pork chops over the rice.

2. Sprinkle Lipton onion soup mix over the entire pan. Cover pan with tin foil and place pan in preheated oven, 350. Bake for about 1 hour, or until pork chops are cooked through and liquid is absorbed in rice.

3. Enjoy!!

It also includes ideas on how you can use them for a variety of different things and several recipes. In the book, I spotted this Roasted Pork Chops with Mustard Basil sauce recipe that just looked incredibly quick, easy, delicious and satisfying! This dish certainly didn’t disappoint me one bit. As I helped myself to eat not just one but two pork chops.

My apologies for my lack of blogging last week. My family and I had a birthday celebration for my grandfather last weekend. At the party we ate barbecue, fried chicken, potato salad, macaroni and cheese. The food was delicious! There was plenty of leftovers, we took some of that food back home with us. It was really nice to not have to cook for a few days.

Creamy and Savory Ranch Pork Chops

Sorry I haven’t been posting anything in a few weeks. I got sidetracked, but I am finally back to what I love best. I hope everyone had a great Christmas and have a prosperous new year. What are some goals for the new year? Two of my goals are to eat healthier and become a better blogger. Thank you so much for your support and patience!

To kick things off on my blog in 2018 I chose to cook this Slow Cooker Creamy Ranch Pork Chops. My grandparents and Aunt came over so they got the first taste and smell of my yummy pork chops. My grandfather (He’s also known as Big Daddy) has had some health issues so I’m hoping just the smell of my chops strengthened him and brightened his spirits. I wish they could’ve stayed a little longer.

My family enjoyed these Creamy Ranch Pork Chops. Oh and get this there’s no packet seasoning. You get to make your own. It’s the easiest slow cooker pork recipe, made from scratch! A family favorite!

Mustard Balsamic Pork Chops

I intended on making Bacon Swiss Pork Chops, but I soon discovered that I didn’t have everything that I needed, so I decided to cook Mustard Balsamic Pork Chops with Rosemary recipe. Get this: the prep time is just five minutes.

These pork chops couldn’t get any simpler; they’re so delicious and juicy, they simply melt in your mouth! Yum!

Mustard Balsamic Pork Chops with Rosemary

Ingredients

4-6 pork chops

1/4 C olive oil

2 Tbsp Dijon Mustard

1/4 C balsamic vinegar

1 Tbsp dry or fresh rosemary coarsely chopped

salt and pepper to taste

Directions

1. Combine all of the ingredients (minus pork chops) into a medium bowl and whisk until the mixture begins to emulsify. Season pork chops with salt and pepper and place them into an airtight plastic container. Pour the marinade over the chops.

2. Make sure they are entirely covered in the sauce. Cover with a lid. Be sure that it’s closed tightly. Place the container in the fridge with the chops inside. You can keep them in the refrigerator for eight hours to overnight.

3. Preheat oven to 425 F degrees. Grease a 9×13 baking with cooking spray. Set aside. Grab your pork chops from the fridge and place them into the previously prepared baking dish. Then bake them for about 45-60 minutes or until done.

Court’s Cooking Notes: The cooking time depends on the thickness of your pork chops. You could prepare these the night before and bake them when you come home from work or school.

Something smells delicious

This past weekend I made this tasty recipe called Pesto Parmesan Pork Chops.

Wow! Let me tell you that it was almost like my nose was trying to eat the smell of the pork chops because after placing

these chops into my oven to let them bake the aroma from the pesto and the chops instantly made my kitchen smell so good!

Here’s a little surprise for y’all! You ONLY need three ingredients for these flavorful Pesto Parmesan Pork Chops.What more could you ask for?

I recommend this Sautéed Mushrooms & Galore for the side dish.

Pesto Parmesan Pork Chops

Ingredients

6-8 pork chops of your choice, I used boneless

8 Tbsp pesto sauce

1 C shredded Parmesan cheese

Salt and Pepper

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray.

1. Shake salt and pepper on the bottom of a large cookie sheet (the kind that has a lip around the edge so juices won’t spill off.) Place pork chops down an inch or two apart. Lightly season each pork chop with salt and pepper.

2. Spread one tablespoon of pesto sauce on each pork chop. I like to put the spoonful on each pork chop before I start spreading so I don’t risk putting a contaminated spoon back in the pesto jar since I will have pesto leftover.

3. Once Pesto is spread evenly on the top of each pork chop sprinkle them generously with the shredded Parmesan cheese.

4. Place the seasoned pork chops in the oven and bake at 350 degrees for forty five-sixty minutes. Depending on how thick the pork chops are they may need the whole sixty minutes.

½ C. whole wheat Panko breadcrumbs

1 Tbsp. fresh parsley, minced

¼ tsp. salt

⅛ tsp. ground black pepper

1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

1. Place your chops onto a clean surface and use a knife or a spatula to spread the mustard evenly over the pork chops. Combine Panko, thyme, parsley, salt, and pepper in a large bowl and dip and cover the pork chops in Panko mixture.

2. Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to a pan and swirl to coat. Add pork chops, sear for two-five minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Place skillet in oven for ten-twenty minutes or until internal temperature on a meat thermometer reads 150 degrees. Serve with a green vegetable or a salad.
