It's a meal-in-one you can't refuse! No side dishes needed -- the combo of pork chops and rice will fill you right up!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 extra-large bags boil-in-bag white rice
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder, divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 (1/2-inch-thick) boneless pork loin chops
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 cup bottled barbecue sauce
  • 1/4 cup frozen chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons water
What To Do:
  1. Prepare rice according to package directions; keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, combine flour, 1 teaspoon chili powder, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish; dredge pork chops in flour mixture.
  3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chops, and cook 2 minutes on each side or until golden.
  4. Combine barbecue sauce, onion, 1/4 cup water, and remaining 1 teaspoon chili powder; pour over chops. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 8 minutes or until chops are done. Remove chops from pan, and keep warm.
  5. Combine cornstarch and 2 teaspoons water, stirring until smooth. Add cornstarch mixture to sauce in pan; cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Divide rice evenly among plates; place chops over rice, and spoon sauce evenly over chops.

Adding a slurry is a fast and easy way to thicken a sauce with no lumping. A mixture of cornstarch (or flour) and water is stirred into a hot liquid mixture, as we do in this recipe.
