"Here's a casserole supper so delicious and satisfying, there's no need for side dishes or extras," says Edie DeSpain of Logan, Utah. Edie found her stick-to-the-ribs recipe in an old cookbook.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium tart apple, cored
  • 2 bone-in pork loin chops (about 3/4 inch thick and 8 ounces each)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1/3 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
  • 2 teaspoons butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. Cut apple widthwise in half. Peel and chop half of apple; set aside. Cut remaining half into three rings; set aside.
  2. Sprinkle chops with 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. In a large skillet, brown chops in oil for 3-4 minutes on each side. Transfer to a greased 11x7-in. baking dish; keep warm.
  3. In same skillet, cook and stir rice and onion in drippings until rice is lightly browned. Stir in the water, bouillon and remaining salt. Stir in chopped apple. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Spoon rice mixture around pork chops. In a small bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon; brush over apple slices. Arrange apple slices on top of chops.
  5. Cover and bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until meat juices run clear and rice is tender.
