Southern Pork Chop and Rice Casserole
This recipe is a pretty classic preparation of a common baked pork chops and rice dish we all enjoy in some form here in the south.
There are some variations as always among cooks, but it typically involves very basic seasonings, some kind of liquid – sometimes a cream soup, sometimes a consomme or French onion soup, sometimes just a simple broth and water added to double the ratio of rice, and sometimes a packet of onion soup mix and water is used. I've done them all. Most often, at least here in the south, there's also the addition of fresh onion and sweet bell pepper, sometimes sliced, sometimes chopped.
