My favorite dish that mom makes is a Pork Chop Casserole. Whenever I go home this is the dish I want mom to make - ok, I'll teach you how to make it - simple- easy- and here ya go.
The ingredients you will need are few- and this is simple:
Pork Chops- of course- thin cut (breakfast type)
One green bell pepper
Beef consume - one can
Five Tablespoons of Long Grain rice
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup of flour
Now - look through the series of photographs about all the steps you will need first- then go back and make it yourself. I hope the photographs help you
|Love a big pan that you can not only fry the pork chop in - but later allow it to simmer|
|A bit of olive oil (no fancy virgin or extra virgin) then Let the pan get hot|
|Medium heat is all you need. With these great pans- anything more is a waste|
|Once the oil is hot - add some butter - I know - trust me on this|
|You will want to cut up some onions, heirloom tomatoes, and green onions|
|Add pepper to the pork chop along with salt|
|The Pork Chop is placed in flour|
|Well seasoned with salt and pepper - then flip it with the tongs and salt and pepper the other side|
|The pork chops go into the frying pan: they are frying over a medium heat|
|You can see they become golden brown on one side after about 2-3 minutes|
|Medium heat is all you need. These pork chops are now fried- time to add the rest of the stuff|
|My mom likes using canned consume - this beef broth is pretty easy too|
|Just add enough of the broth to almost cover the chops|
|Should look like this|
|The sliced onion goes on first|
|Then add the tomato on top of it|
|The bell pepper is placed to make it look "pretty" - as mom says|
|About 5 Tablespoons of rice - I prefer long-grain|
|Just add it to the broth on either side of the chops|
|If you have left over tomatoes and green peppers and onions place them around the dish|
|All you need is to simmer this- so down from the medium heat|
|Remember low and slow|
|After about 15 minutes it starts to look like this|
|Now it is done- the rice has absorbed the flavors of the pork and vegetables|
|You have a perfect dish- with vegetables and meat and starch.|
Here is the written recipe:
Place about two tablespoons of olive oil in a deep dish fry or sautee pan and have it on a medium heat. Once it has heated up add two tablespoons of butter.
Take the pork chops and dredge them through flour-- put the flour on a plate, place the chop on it. Season the top of the pork chop with salt and pepper. Flip the pork chop- and season the other side. Note- This pork is raw- so wash your hands after handling the chop and wash down the counter surfaces
Place the pork chop in the pan once it is HOT - and on a medium heat. It should fry about 3 minutes per side. Once one side is finished- flip the chop and do the other side. Still raw pork- whatever utensil you used to flip it-- needs to be washed
While frying the pork chop- cut the onions and tomato and bell Pepper length wise
Once the pork chops are finished - add just enough beef broth - or canned beef consume to bring it to the top of the chop.
Add the onion first, then the tomato- then the pepper on the chop.
Turn the heat down to SIMMER.
In the broth add your rice and any left over chopped vegetables.
Cover- and in about thirty minutes you will have a great dish.
