This was quite delicious! I did switch it up just a bit after reading some of the other reviews - I cut my pork chops into chunks (cooked faster) and marinated them in some Catalina Dressing, Italian Dressing and a bit of pineapple juice for a couple hours before cooking ( I think just coating them in this before cooking would help if you didn't have the time to marinate. I didn't have minute rice on hand, so I ended up using enriched long grain rice (used 2 cups broth per rice instructions) and I just cooked it until the liquid was soaked up and my pork ended up being so flavorful and tender! I used 1 green pepper (thats all I had on hand, 1 small onion sliced, and a handful of baby carrots as well. I think using the chunks of pork chops helped this recipe stretch, because we have plenty of left overs - I will definitely be making this again! Give it a try!!
