“Another one of my favorite recipes of my mom's. This is a great one dish meal that is inexpensive and easy to prepare. Most of my mom's cooking is done by taste and not by measurement, so adjustments should be made according to your own preferences. Enjoy!”

  • 12-1 cup rice (depending on number of chops & people)
