On the Menu Today~
Pork Chops with Dirty Rice
It's Sunday and that means....
It's time for #Sunday Supper.
Today's Event: Easy Pork Chop Recipes
Today's host is: Shelby from Grumpy's Honeybunch
Thank you Shelby!

I've been making this recipe for as long as I can remember....
and at my age, when I can barely remember where I put my car keys,
remembering a recipe that I've been making for many years,
well that can only mean one thing, it must be a darn good recipe!

When making this recipe,
I like to use thick cut pork chops.
I tend to overcook thin cut pork chops,
making them dry, tough and
not very flavorful.

Serve Pork Chops and Dirty Rice,
with a small tossed green salad or
steamed vegetables of your choice.
