But it all worked out. We had large lunches so thank goodness I wasn’t starving or anything. The pork chops needed to be browned on the skillet (I don’t even know if I did that the best) and then baked for 45 minutes, then another 15 minutes.
I think the meat was cooked for too long. It tastes a bit dry for me, however is that normal for pork chops? Like I said, I usually go for the chicken so I don’t even know anymore what’s normal and what’s over cooked. If I make this again, I think I’ll cook it less. Thumbs to the side.
I don’t really understand why it had to be baked, since the rice and veggies were already hot and cooked before it went in the oven. But it was still good. Luckily I had some carrots from the lentil-tomato soup I made a couple days before.
I would definitely make this recipe again and recommend it to anyone who loves rice and veggies on the side of a dinner plate. Thumbs up!
It’s good enough to eat with dinner however, and covered with butter. The recipe suggested that I serve with honey butter, but I don’t like honey butter so that didn’t happen. It was perfectly fine with just normal butter, but I know a lot of others love honey butter so go ahead and make that with yours and tell me what you think!
Even though the bread was good, I don’t know if I would make it again. I still don’t like making bread. This particular recipe wasn’t bad because I didn’t have to knead the dough or touch it in anyway. It was great.
