CHEESY PORK AND RICE SKILLET
CHEESY PORK AND RICE SKILLET 2 tbsp olive oil 1 lb. boneless pork sirloin chops, cut into bite-sized pieces 1/2 onion, diced 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 cup uncooked white rice (I use Jasmine) 1 tbsp Italian Seasoning 1 cup frozen peas and carrots 2 cups chicken broth 1/2 cup sour cream 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute the pork with the garlic and onions, until the pork is browned and the onions are tender (about 5 to 7 minutes). Add the rice, Italian seasoning, frozen peas and carrots and chicken broth tot he skillet. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cover. Cook for about 18 minutes or until rice is tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in the sour cream and 1/2 cup of the cheese until combined. Top with the remaining cheese. Cover with the lid for an additional 2 to 3 minutes, until the cheese melts. Or optionally, you can place the skillet under your oven's broiler for about 2 minutes until cheese is bubbly and melted. Enjoy! Notes*You can substitute cubed chicken breast for the pork if desired.
