What's for Dinner #1

SMOTHERED PORK CHOPS!


Brown your chops in a little bit of olive oil.
Add a medium onion, sliced, green or red or a combination of pepper, sliced. I use red.
2 stalks of celery, diced.
Kosher Salt and Pepper to taste.
Add 4-5 Tablespoons of rice, your choice. I prefer brown since it's suppose to be better for us, just DO NOT use instant. Use real rice!
Pour a can of diced tomatoes over the top. (I prefer the fire roasted tomatoes with juice) They have so much more flavor. Add just enough water to rinse the can out. (just a couple of tablespoons)
Cover your skillet and let it simmer on low heat for about an hour.
At the very end add a small bag of frozen peas.  
It is a one pot meal and it is so good and easy.


I serve it with a side tossed salad and a piece of crusty bread.
Leftovers are excellent.

Love and hugs!

  6. This looks delicious, Ginger. I love pork chops, and that salad looks yummy too. I've cooked for so many years, that I haven't been cooking many big meals lately. Plus, the kids are all grown - just me and hubby.

  12. This looks wonderful and I bet you could do it with chicken too. I agree about the brown rice. I use that or rice pilaf. Hope you are having a good weekend...Happy Sunday.

  13. Hi Ginger. Sorry I haven't been by. Trying to play some catchup. The reno took all my time. Still have a lot to do so time is still limited for another month or so, but stopping in where I can until I can get back to normal.

    Like your header photo. Very pretty. And that meal is making my mouth water. Looks great. Have a nice day.
