So, for now I’m working on eating better and will worry about portion control later. In most cases, recipes will have additional meat than what is recommended.
For this recipe, I went from 2 bone-in pork chops to 4 bone-in pork chops. I also don’t want a lot of ingredients around the house I won’t be using again or that often, so instead of Mango Chipotle salad dressing, I went with Italian salad dressing and doubled it from 1/3c to 2/3c due to doubling the meat.
For the side dishes, I’m not really big on vegetables, so while I know I’ll work them in sooner or later, I left the broccoli out. I also substituted yellow rice for wild rice since I am going to be using my rice cooker.
And here’s the final result:
We both enjoyed it. The pork chops were super tender. The rice did do well in the rice cooker, but I think a little extra water would have reduced the stickiness of the rice.
