More About This Recipe
  • Pork chops are one of those dinners that feels fancy but is shockingly simple to make. This pork chops and rice recipe is no exception; it’s a one-pot dinner which is always a win if you ask us, and it’s made for two people, which is perfect for date-night in or if you’re cooking for one and love leftovers. The creamy rice rounds out the dinner as a comforting side dish, but if you’re looking to add a little greenery to your plate, we recommend steamed broccoli, asparagus or a small garden salad. Another thing we love about this pork chop recipe is how easily you can switch up the flavor by experimenting with the seasonings. We started basic with salt, pepper and parsley, but Italian seasoning or red pepper flakes taste great, too! Love pork chops, but looking for a larger portioned recipe?
