"One of my favorite dinners as a child, still love it today! Use only fresh, home-grown tomatoes. I season the onion and tomatoes too, with a teeny, tiny pinch of kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. This can be made in an electric skillet or finished in the oven. Prep time doesn't include cooking the rice."

Step 1

If using electric skillet, preheat to 350 degrees. Otherwise preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a baking dish large enough to hold all your pork chops.

Step 2

If rice has been in fridge, heat in microwave until warm. Combine rice with soup and water, set aside.

Step 3

Slice onions into 1/4" thick slices and tomatoes into 1/2" thick slices. Rub seasoning into pork chops. (I use the lesser amount of cloves. Salt and pepper as you normally would in a recipe using condensed soup.)

Step 4

Drizzle about 1 tablespoon of oil into skillet and sear chops on both sides. If using an electric skillet, reduce temp to the lowest setting. Otherwise, place pork chops in baking dish.

Step 5

Place an onion slice on each pork chop, followed by a tomato slice. I like the onion and tomato so much that I cut extra chunks of each to make sure every inch of the pork chops are covered.

Step 6

Spread the rice mixture over the tomatoes. I just drop large spoonfuls of rice on the tomatoes and press the rice into place, so my pork chop "stack" doesn't come undone.

Step 7

Cover electric skillet and cook 30-45 minutes, or until pork chops are done. If baking in the oven, cover tightly with foil, then bake for 30-45 minutes, or until chops are done. Cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of your chops.
