I’ve had this recipe on my list of “blog recipes to make” for soooooo long now. These Pork Chops and Rice are one of my mom’s famous family recipes. See, it’s always been one of my dad’s favorite meals, so I remember having it quite a bit while growing up. The funny thing is that I never liked it at all, until high school.
My mom made it one day, I griped a little about not wanting it, and then I tasted it and it was all of the sudden one of the best things I’d ever had. For years after that, I’d request this as my birthday meal, and when I came home to visit from college, I’d always ask her to make this. Overall, it’s a really simple meal, but it reminds me so much of home, so it’s extra special to me. I hope you’ll make it and bring a little piece of my home into yours!
