Instructions

  1. Start by making your rice or any other side you'd like. Mom's Tip: Add about 2 tablespoons of lemon juice to rice and it will never overcook. Perfect every time without the lemon flavor.
  2. As your rice is cooking, cut up 2 apples, set aside. I use Red Delicious because they're bigger and juicer. You don't want to use green. The sweeter the better.
  3. In a frying pan, add a dab of olive oil, place pork chops and set to medium heat on stove. Add seasoning if you'd like.
  4. Allow the pork chops to brown on one side, flip over and add the apples. Then sprinkle cinnamon over the top. How much you use depends on your sweet tooth.
  5. Add 1/2 cup of water, pouring it over the top, keep on medium heat for about 20 minutes uncovered.
  6. By now your rice should be done. Add a little olive oil to the rice and serve with pork chops, garnish with parsley and you're done. Total time shouldn't be more than 30 minutes, including prep.

    Your recipe sounds tasty. Try making it with Chinese five-fragrance powder in place of the cinnamon sometime.
