Description

This delicious and easy-to-make dish features tender pork chops baked over a bed of seasoned rice, making it a perfect weeknight dinner. The combination of juicy meat and fluffy rice is sure to satisfy your taste buds.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onion and cook, stirring frequently, until it turns a golden brown, which should take about 15 to 20 minutes. Once done, transfer the onion to a plate.
  3. Season the pork chops on all sides with seasoned salt. Using the same skillet, brown the pork chops for about 1 to 2 minutes on each side.
  4. In a 9×13-inch baking dish, combine the beef consommé and water. Pour the rice into this broth mixture, then add the caramelized onion. Gently place the browned pork chops on top of the rice in a single layer. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the pork is fully cooked, which should take about 45 to 60 minutes. Ensure the internal temperature of the pork reaches at least 145°F (63°C) using an instant-read thermometer.

Notes

  • – Feel free to use boneless pork chops if preferred.
    – You can add other vegetables like peas or carrots for extra flavor and nutrition.
    – For a creamier texture, you can replace water with milk or additional broth.
