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 . . .
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!

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 . . .
I ate it!
