Preparing the Boneless Pork Chops
The key advantages to preparing this Boneless Pork Chops meal in a single skillet include easier clean-up and a better integration of flavors by preparing the pork, aromatics, and rice in one pan. However, timing is an important consideration when preparing one-skillet meals that include rice or a wild rice blend. The final cook time will vary by type of rice, blend composition, brand, individual cooktop, and the addition of other ingredients.
The rice should be cooked through without being too hard or too mushy, so be sure to pay attention to the preparation instructions for the brand you are using and keep a close eye on it the first time you prepare this recipe.
Note: This recipe was developed and tested using Lundberg Gourmet Wild Blend Rice.
In addition, boneless pork chops have a tendency to get tough and chewy if overcooked. Bone-in pork chops are more forgiving, but they will require a little additional cook time. To avoid overcooking, return the seared boneless chops to the skillet just before the wild rice is ready to serve.
Tip: Allow the pork to rest at room temperature for 30 minutes prior to cooking. Then, check the internal temperature with an instant-read thermometer while cooking and adjust final cook time accordingly. (Remove from heat once the temperature reaches 135°-138°F. The temperature will rise several degrees as the chops rest until it reaches the recommended safe temperature of 145°F).
