Quick Meal – Pork Chops & Rice

Another feature I’ve considered adding is the Quick Meal feature. (originally I was going to call it Quick Meal Monday, but here we again run into this problem: I don’t always post on Monday.)

I think of a Quick Meal as anything that takes a short time to prep. Even if it takes 6 hours to cook something in the crockpot, I still think of it as a quick meal, because I didn’t have to spend a lot time preparing it. But of course the best quick meals are the ones which you can cook at the spur of the moment with ingredients that you regularly keep on hand.

Most likely if I keep this idea, it would sometimes accompany the Menu Plan Monday. That is, it would feature an item that I placed on my menu plan Monday post. (but it doesn’t have to. it could be totaly ramdom as well.)

This quick meal post is on Pork Chops & Rice, which is an item I placed on my menu this week. My husband loves casseroles with rice (as do I), so I keep several recipes like this one on a regular rotation. (And these are perfect to cook when you’re doing it at the last minute)

1 can Cream of Celery Soup
1 cup water
3/4 cup uncooked regular white rice
1/4 tsp. pabrika
1/4 tsp. pepper
3-6 boneless porkchops (i usually get a pack of 4 or 5)

In a shallow baking dish mix the water, rice, paprika, and pepper. Place porkchops on top of rice mixture. Sprinkle with addtional pepper and paprika. Cover with tin foil.

Bake at 375 for 45 or until meat and rice are done. For a big family, you can double this recipe.

Tip: Spinkle cheddar cheese on top before cooking for additional flavor.
