Serve these juicy quick pork chops with peas and Minute® Ready to Serve Whole Grain Brown Rice on the side.
My recipe for quick minute pork chops was created as part of a sponsored post by Minute® Rice!
As much as I’d like to use brown rice more, I still haven’t perfected my cooking techniques. It always turns out chewy and underdone. Meh.
White rice? No problem; light and fluffy every time.
I hear making amazingly tender brown rice is as simple as rinsing it well beforehand, and then cooking it French-style, in a big pot of salted boiling water and draining it after about forty minutes. You know, like pasta.
But, first of all, who has that kind of time on a weeknight? By my calculations, that’s almost an hour for brown rice. RICE.
And so? We end up eating white rice.
Which, don’t get me wrong, I love. But I’d rather eat brown rice, because you know, it’s healthier.
I was recently given the opportunity to try Minute® Rice—any one of their varieties.
As I skimmed the isle at the grocery store the other day, I said to myself, “Why not try brown rice … again.”
Thinking ahead to weeknights that are super busy for us right now, with lacrosse season in high gear, and my work getting busier by the day, I wanted something quick and easy.
Then I found it: Minute® Ready to Serve Whole Grain Brown Rice.
Single serve containers that hold enough to actually serve two people as a side (in our house anyway). And you microwave it. For only a minute.
Perfect for a quick weeknight dinner, and also perfect to heat up quickly in the morning to add to a thermos in my daughter’s school lunch.
Although, in retrospect Minute® 100% Whole Grain Brown Rice would done the job on a busy weeknight too.
If you like the nutty, rich flavor of brown rice, Minute® 100% Whole Grain Brown Rice is a delicious, healthy option, and it has the same nutritional values as regular long cooking brown rice, but is ready in just ten minutes, just 1/4 the time of regular brown rice.
You can also have great tasting, fluffy white rice in just five minutes with Minute® White Rice. It’s easy to prepare and is the foundation to any healthy meal.
Tonight we tried the Minute® Ready to Serve Whole Grain Brown Rice, and the kids LOVED it.
Paired with quick pork chops and steamed green peas, it was dinner in about … oh … TEN MINUTES.
You can’t pick up fast food that quick!
Minute® Rice is so quick and easy to prepare and is great pantry staple. When meal time seems like a hassle, Minute® Rice is a go-to ingredient your whole family will love and allows you to have more quality time doing what your want with your loved ones.
