Best Baked Pork Chops and Rice


After searching for a good, easy, one-dish baked pork chop recipe I came up with my own -- and it's the best. These were literally fork tender. I served it with a side of mixed vegetables. I know a lot of people will balk at using the bacon grease for frying the chops, but it does add a smoky flavor that enhances the chipotle pepper.

4 pork chops


  • non-stick cooking spray

  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup with roasted garlic

  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup

  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk

  • 1 (4.5 ounce) can sliced mushrooms, drained

  • 4 green onions, chopped

  • 1 cup long-grain white rice

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 2 ½ tablespoons garlic powder, or to taste

  • 1 tablespoon ground chipotle pepper, or to taste

  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste

  • 4 pork chops

  • 2 tablespoons bacon grease


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

  2. Mix cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, milk, mushrooms, green onions, rice, and Worcestershire in a medium bowl. Set aside.

  3. Combine garlic powder, chipotle pepper, and salt in a small bowl, adjusting seasoning mix to taste.

  4. Rinse pork chops and pat dry. Season both sides of chops with seasoning mix.

  5. Heat bacon grease over medium heat in a large, heavy frying pan. Fry chops 2 at a time until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Place browned chops in the prepared baking dish.

  6. Pour soup and rice mixture over the pork chops, covering well. Cover the baking dish tightly with aluminum foil.

  7. Bake in the preheated oven until pork is no longer pink in the center and topping is golden brown, about 1 hour and 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

I used button mushroom because I had them on hand at the time. However, I have since made this with other types of mushrooms and the flavors are wonderful. Experiment with different ones as desired! If you don't want to use/don't have bacon grease, use a good olive oil.
