Southern Pork Chops & Collard Rice Recipe


Is there anything better than good old fashioned Soul Food? The only problem is that many good soul food dishes are quite time consuming, and almost everyone is too busy to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Southern Pork Chops with Collard Rice, however, is quick and easy to put together, and it cooks unattended in the slow cooker. It includes some of the best soul food ingredients: pork chops, bacon, collard greens, bell peppers, onions, and rice. Dehydrated vegetables are a huge timesaver; they are inexpensive and are always at the ready on the pantry shelf. Of course you can choose to take a little more time and chop fresh veggies, but since there is no difference in taste of the finished dish, why spend the extra time?

ĒĒ
Southern Pork Chops and Collard Rice can be varied according to personal tastes. If collard greens arenít a favorite, you can use turnip or mustard greens, or even kale. Although the recipe calls for boneless pork chops, you can use bone-in, or substitute chicken. If Cajun seasoning isnít available, you can use your favorite all-purpose seasoning, or just salt and pepper. You can use your imagination and vary this delicious soul food dish to suit your needs.
