How to Make Savory Saffron Rice with Pork Chops


  1. Heat water and butter in a pan on medium heat until butter is melted. Cut each pork chop lengthwise, making two strips. Brown each side in a skillet with a little oil, sprinkle with a dash of salt and pepper if desired. In a mixing bowl, put rice (uncooked), bell pepper, onion, and tomato and mix gently. Put rice mixture in a cassarole dish, arrange pork chop strips on top of rice, then slowly pour water with melted butter over the top.
  2. Cover and bake in a 350 degree oven for about an hour.
