Gluten Free Friday! (GF Spicy Pork Chops and Rice)

Hello again food lovers and welcome to this week's Gluten Free Friday recipe post. Today I bring you a delicious one-dish recipe that's healthy, easy to make, and packed with protein at 53g per serving. All of the ingredients, including the Old Bay seasoning, are naturally gluten free except for the Worcestershire sauce. Be sure that you buy a gluten free Worcestershire sauce for this recipe. The Old Bay Seasoning and Green Chiles in this dish give it a nice subtle heat but if like your food spicy then feel free to add some chopped jalapeno for that extra kick. Give it a try and let me know what you think and/or what you'd change or do differently with this dish.

GF Spicy Pork Chops and Rice

  • 4 (7oz each) Bone-In Pork Chops
  • 2 tsp Old Bay Seasoning, divided
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Bell Pepper, chopped
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 1 (10 oz) can Tomatoes with Green Chiles
  • 1 (15 oz) can Black Eyed Peas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup Uncooked Rice
  • 2 cups Chicken Broth
  • 1 Tbsp GF Worcestershire Sauce

1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
2. Sprinkle the pork chops with Old Bay Seasoning on each side, reserving 1 tsp of the seasoning for later.
3. Pan sear the pork chops, about 2-3 minutes on each side until both sides are golden brown; remove from the skillet and set aside. (You aren’t looking for doneness, just a good color on each side.)
4. Add the chopped onion and bell pepper to the pan and cook for about one minute.
5. Add the can of tomatoes with green chiles, black eyed peas, chicken broth, rice, Worcestershire, and the reserved 1 tsp of Old Bay Seasoning; stir until combined and then top with the pork chops.
6. Bring the mixture to a simmer; place a lid on the skillet, turn the heat down to low, and let simmer for about 25 minutes until all liquid is absorbed.
