Have you ever had a stuffed pork chop?
I have made these with rice mix or stuffing mix. Either way, they are wonderful.
I used the rice mix that I picked up from Trader Joes in Arizona. This one is Garden Herbs and Vegetables, but you can use whatever rice mix you want.
You can see that they are sliced really thick.
If you don't want to purchase the already sliced pork loin chops, you can just buy a pork loin and slice them yourself. I do that sometimes.
I cook my rice according to package directions, and then stuff the rice mixture into the slit. I try and keep them standing up, but sometimes they want to be lazy and fall over.
I place a few pads of butter in the bottom of my dish.
Cover the dish with foil, and bake.
If you don't cover the dish while baking, the rice will turn crunchy. Me don't like crunchy rice....
After my rice was cooked and the pan was emptied, I added my frozen carrots to the same pan without washing. It gave my carrots a little extra flavor.
