Forgotten Pork Chops

Serves 2


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 bone-in pork chops, cut 3/4-1" thick
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 can condensed mushroom soup
  • 1 cup long grain rice
  • salt and pepper


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat on your stove top.  Season the chops with salt and pepper.  Brown the pork chops for 3-5 minutes on each side or until you get a nice brown sear.  Set aside.

Spoon the mushroom soup into a two cup glass measuring cup,  Add water to make two cups liquid.  Mix the water and soup together.  Add the chopped onion and mix to combine. Add one cup of rice to the soup mixture and stir to combine.  Pour the soup and rice mixture into a 9" square baking dish.  Place the chops on top of the rice mixture.

Cover the baking dish very tightly with aluminum foil.  You want to ensure the moisture stays in your pan.  Bake the pork chops and rice for 90 minutes.   Remove from the oven and check to be sure the rice has absorbed the liquid and is ready.  Be careful when you lift the foil.  The steam will be hot and can burn you.  Serve with your favorite vegetable side for a complete meal.
