Easy and Quick Italian Pork Chops

This is a great go-to recipe when I need a quick and delicious dinner.  If you are a fan of pork chops, peppers and rice, you will enjoy this dinner.   

Italian Pork Chops
4 pork chops
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 peppers, cut in strips
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 cup Italian dressing
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
2 cups rice, uncooked

Cook rice as directed.  The recipe calls for instant rice, but I like to make Basmati rice.  While the rice is cooking, heat a skillet over high heat.  Add chops, cooking for 2 minutes or until bottoms are browned.  Reduce heat to medium, turning chops.  Sprinkle pork chops with oregano, top with peppers, onions and dressing.  Bring to a boil, then simmer on low heat for 12 minutes.  Spoon rice on plates, topping with chops.  Cook vegetable mixture on high heat, 1-2 minutes.  Spoon over chops, then top with cheese.  Enjoy!

Note - depending on the thickness of your pork chops, you may need to simmer a little longer than 12 minutes.  Also, the original recipe calls for a can of Italian-style diced tomatoes, which you would add the same time as the peppers / onions / dressing.  I prefer to leave out the tomatoes, but it does still taste good with them added in.

  1. These look really flavorful! I'm not a huge pork chop fan but Dustin is so I may have to try to cook these for him and try a bite myself! I bet you could even sub in quinoa too for your grain. Happy Thursday, friend!

  8. Yum, these sound really good! I feel like I'm always in a chicken and beef rut. I should try pork chops. My mom makes them sometimes and they are so good, but I've never tried them.
