Hey my friend. I was just sitting here thinking of how I can help make your life a little easier.
So, here I am to give you a fantastic idea for dinner when your family is “hangry”.
If you have a busy day planned and need to throw dinner in the crockpot and forget about it … this is an excellent recipe to try.
I fixed this meal one night on a whim. I thought … at least everyone will be full and we won’t spend $50-60 eating out.
I never thought it would become one of my husbands most favorite requested meals!!
You see, my husband is a kinda (that’s an understatement) snooty eater. He says he doesn’t mind a sandwich … or even cereal for dinner. But the second I try a new recipe, the snootery starts showing.
He will come in the door from work, roll his eyes, and say “ Oh no. Its an experiment night.”
In his defense, I have cooked some terrible things. The most memorable being a beef stroganoff that has since been deemed… “the dirty sock dinner”. Needless to say, we will never repeat that one. (Ill let you ponder why it was called that. And no … it didn’t have socks in it.)
This meal won’t be like that one though. Promise!!!
Crockpot Pork Chops with Rice
6 boneless Pork chops (I have found that the ribmeat chops are most tender)
2 large cans of Chicken and Rice soup
½ cup uncooked rice (I prefer to use Jasmine rice over traditional white rice)
1 cup chicken broth
Dry mustard powder
Rinse and dry pork chops. Set aside.
Empty 1 can of the chicken and rice soup into bottom of the crockpot.
Sprinkle ¼ cup of uncooked rice evenly over the soup mixture.
Arrange the pork chops on top of that soup and rice mixture.
Pour in the 1 cup of chicken broth.
Season over the pork chops with a generous amount of Nature season and dry mustard.
Sprinkle the remaining ¼ cup of uncooked rice over the pork chops.
Empty the second can of chicken and rice soup over the top of it all.
Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or until pork chops are tender.
Serve straight out of the crockpot with an optional vegetable. Enjoy!!
When you try this recipe and love it (and I know you will!!) let me hear about it in the comments. Also, let me hear about your quick and easy crockpot “experiments” that have turned out to be your all time favorite meals. I need some new things to try out on my family.
