Smothered Pork Chops

Who doesn't love some good ol pork chops? This is a quick and easy meal you will surely enjoy!

  • 1 c uncooked regular long-grain white rice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 6 bone-in pork loin chops, 3/4-inch thick (about 2 lb)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 can (18.5 oz) Progresso Vegetable Classics French onion soup
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch

  • Make rice as directed on package.
  • Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot. Cook garlic and pork chops in oil 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until pork chops are brown. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • In small bowl, mix soup and cornstarch. Pour over pork chops; heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium, cover and cook 10 to 15 minutes or until pork is no longer pink and meat thermometer inserted in center reads 160°F.
*Sometimes I use boneless pork chops to cut down on the cooking time*
