Great Buy on Pork Now What?

So I stopped at the store there was this great buy on really thick cuts of pork.  The Cowboy likes those big 'ole man size chops.

I usually pan grill with a side of spinach and rice or potatoes of some sort. 

As I was driving home with my treasure I got to thinking . . .
Did I see a bone in the pork?  Got home went to put them in the fridge and Yep I was right no bone.  Now what?  I have never been really successfully with those thick 'ole pieces of boneless pork.

What do I do now? 

So I decided cook in the oven with rice and some good 'ole cream soup.  Should make it tender and juicy right?  I was hopin'. 

So I get my ingredients.  Chop some garlic and onions.  Fry a couple slices of bacon to cook them in.  Add a big hunk of butter and start them slowly cookin' in the bacon grease. 

Then I thought.  How much rice? How much water?  Well off to Pinterest I went. 

Here's the recipe I adapted . . .

15 minutes is all you need to put together this scrumptious one-dish casserole! Tender chicken breasts sit on top of a bed of creamy rice with broccoli and carrots. Topped with melted Cheddar…dinner is served!
And look heart healthy too!  Actually it didn't look anything like this.  I didn't put in broccoli, or carrots or the cheese.  Basically I just used the ratios of rice and water.  I stirred the onions and garlic into the rice mix.  Saved a little and poured onto the pork. 

A good deal on pork turned out to be a great dinner! 

Here's the link to the recipe Campbell's Soup Chicken Rice Bake

I love using cream soups as a base for recipes.  Do you?

There was just enough leftover rice for the dog to get a bite!

And that other ingredient I mentioned . . .
