Pork Chops and Spanish Rice

It is many years since Hub-UK was first launched. It has been created from recipes contributed form all over the world, from professionals and amateurs alike. A great many of the recipes do not have any details as to who sent them in or from where they came. It would be a shame not to share them with you for this reason alone.

This is one such recipe. If you know where it originated, or perhaps it is even yours, let me know and I will add the necessary credits and acknowledgements.

"The most indispensable ingredient of all good home cooking - love, for those you are cooking for" ~ Sophia Loren.


1 cup uncooked regular rice
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
4 pork chops, each 1 inch thick
3 cups coarsely chopped tomatoes
1 green pepper, diced
1 small onion, chopped
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1/4 cup water


  • Saute rice in large skillet in oil over medium to high heat for 3 to 5 minutes or until browned, stirring constantly.
  • Remove rice and set aside.
  • Add pork chops to skillet and brown on both sides.
  • Combine rice, tomatoes, green pepper, onion, salt and pepper and spoon over pork chops.
  • Add water and cover. Simmer for 50 to 55 minutes or until pork chops are tender. (The juice from the chopped tomatoes and water are sufficient for the rice).
