Old Favorite, New Twist Baked Pork Chops with Tomatoes and Rice

A one dish meal that goes on auto-pilot once it's put together and in the oven. The pork chops are tender and juicy and the rice is flavorful.


  • 4 to 6 bone in pork loin chops

  • 1 1/2 cups rice I use Basmati
  • 1 sweet onion chopped
  • 1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 3 cups water


  • Sprinkle pork chops generously with seasoned salt. Let them come to room temperature for one hour prior to baking. Melt bacon drippings in a large hot skillet. Brown chops on both sides. Remove from skillet.
  • Add rice and onion to skillet and cook, stirring constantly, for 3 to 4 minutes or until rice has started to brown and onion has softened.
  • Stir in tomatoes and seasoned salt.
  • Place pork chops on top of rice.
  • Add water to skillet. Cover and bake covered at 350 degrees for one hour. Remove from oven, keep covered and let sit for 15 minutes.
