Easy-Peasy Pork Chops with Broccoli Orzo
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook orzo in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain.Advertisement
Combine sazon seasoning, Italian seasoning, salt, and black pepper together in a small bowl. Sprinkle mixture generously over both sides of pork chops.
Heat a large grill pan over medium heat. Grill chops until no longer pink inside, about 4 minutes per side.
While chops are grilling, place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add broccoli, cover, and steam until crisp-tender, 2 to 4 minutes.
Transfer cooked chops to a place. Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat and cook onion until soft and translucent, 3 to 4 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and add garlic. Stir and cook without burning, 1 to 2 minutes more. Remove from heat.
Stir cooked orzo and steamed broccoli into the saucepan with the onion mixture. Serve with pork chops.
If you do not have a grill pan or an outdoor grill, you can pan-sear the chops in a large saute pan. Just add about 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the hot pan before adding the chops.
