Tonight’s Meal: Fried Pork Chops and Barbeque Rice

Tonight I made dinner. Yeah, regarding the fact that I haven’t made anything for a while… I felt like making dinner. Which I should always feel like making dinner, but anyways. I made fried pork chops, and bar-b-q rice. Now, you may be asking me… “Bar-b-Q Rice, Dana? Seriously” Uh, yeah, I’m dead serious! And it was DELICIOUS! What I did was cook plain white rice, then when it was done, I added this Wicked Slow Cooker Sauce, from a company called Wildtree. The slow cooker sauce tastes just like bar-b-q sauce, and it’s all natural, so that’s what I used. Then I added Smoky Bar-B-Q seasoning from Pampered Chef andย  mixed it all together, and it was the BOMB!!! It was the best rice I’ve had, since I had this really good Mexican rice at my friend’s house! Then the mean part, was Fried Pork! Mmmm, that was really good. What I did was beat some eggs, then I mixed some flour, salt, pepper, and some of that Smoky Bar-b-q seasoning in, and then I took my pork chops, dipped them in the egg, then the flour, and then fried them in a big pan with lots ofย  oil. They were really good! And I mean, like, RRREALLYYY good!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I loved plating my meal too. Tonight was the first night that I really actually plated my meal. What I did was I took some of the slow cooker sauce (I used the same ingredients a lot in this mean… love doing that!) and drew a line in the plate with it, then put the pork next to it. Then some shredded carrots, peas, and the rice on it. You know what, you can just look at the picture! I’ll have one on here. It was a really good meal!

I just realized tonight, that I’m almost done cooking through my cookbook (Get There and Cook)! It’s been a great experience for me! Once I’m done with it, I’m definitely taking a break from cooking through a cookbook. I will keep cooking, just not another cookbook for a while! But I’ll keep writing, cooking, and doing what I love to do!:)

  2. I LOVE that PC bbq seasoning! ๐Ÿ™‚ Way to go on the rice! You should try cooking your ‘plain white rice’ in some chicken broth next time instead of water – and see what you get. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • yes, it’s my favorite seasoning out of all the seasonings. And I have a lot of them!Oh, yeah, sorta like a pillaf, instead of just rice. I wish I had thought of that before! I’ll let you know how that turns out. I need to get more of the slow cooker sauce, because it was so good the night we made it that we ate it ALL! There wasn’t much left anyways, but there was a good deal of it! Thanks, Kim! Hope to see you soon, and cook you another meal!

  3. Dana – the whole meal sounds great, but especially the BBQ rice…I will have to give that a try (or ask Grammie to give it a try!)…keep up the good work…your blog is a refreshing read.

    • It was great! Thanks! Yeah, the bar-b-q rice was my favorite! I didn’t want just plain rice, so I dicided to go to my creative side, and think up something good that would please everyone. Yes, she should!!! Thanks, Gramps! I will!

  4. YUUUUUUUUUUUM! your makin’ me hungry! STOP IT!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ teehee

  5. Dana,
    The meal sounds and looks delicious! You did an amazing job on the plating. How fortunate the family is to have their very own chef and I enjoy seeing your incredible progress. You have a great eye for detail and a real knack for explaining the process in easy to understand terms. I will have to get some of the seasoning you used in the rice so I can make some for Gramps.
