This worked well, I should have started dinner sooner but that was my fault for not looking at the cooking time when I read the recipe earlier in the day. The rice came out perfectly done the meat tender and juicy and the flavor was banging. Good enough that I was forgiven for missing the 6 Oclock dinner bell :) Read More

I think it was a good base recipe. I used a 9x13 glass baking dish and I didn't layer it as instructed in the recipe. I used about half of a large bell pepper, added approximately half a cup of fresh broccoli florets, and approximately half a cup of mushrooms. I also substituted the marjarim and thyme with approximately a tablespoon of Italian seasoning. I was a little concerned that the rice wouldn't cook thoroughly with the additional veggies. However, as mentioned previously, the pork chops were too dry and the rice was mushy. The pork chops were also bland. I didn't even leave it in the oven for the full hour and 45 minutes; cooked apx 1 hr and 15 minutes. I will use the recipe again but next time I plan to use thicker, bone in, pork chops (after marinating them) and cook for maybe 45 minutes to an hour. Read More

Incredibly simple and succulent. beef stock 500ml (2cups) and a generous dash of dry white wine (approx 1/4 cup) worked well as an alternative to the consommé Read More

It worked well, but add one step for more flavour: after searing the chops, drain off extra fat and deglaze the pan with some or all of the broth. You will also speed up the cooking if you heat all the broth, so adjust cooking time as well. Read More

Easy and tasty. I used three roma tomatoes and Penzey's Bavarian Seasoning instead of the marjoram and thyme the recipe calls for. Read More

This was easy to make and tasted great. Add a little hot sauce or red chili peppers to spice this dish up a bit if you like that kind of thing. Read More

Tasty and attractive, but make the dish look nicer by layering the veggies on top of the pork rather than vice versa. I put salt and pepper on the pork chops before searing to lock in more flavor, but otherwise, a lovely dish. Read More
