Pork Chops and Rice

   

Pork Chops and Rice

What a eye-opener. It was ..... well, just delicious and I WILL be having it again. Many thanks to the Pioneer Woman for showing me rice CAN be nice! I admit to a few changes to the original recipe - I didn't have fresh pineapple but I did have a tin and I used a famous name 'Peri Peri Sauce' as I'd run out of hot chili sauce but the final result was good - even with my changes. I don't eat pork so only cooked one chop and I added chopped mushrooms to the rice - the rice and onion mixture was a meal in itself for me.  Add cooked chicken to the rice if you want.

  This is how we ate this meal and it was delicious - I'll be making it with chicken soon.  For anyone who has vegetarians and meat eaters to feed this meal is suitable for everyone.  The rice is substantial enough on it's own - I thoroughly enjoyed the rice with the onions.
