Cranberry Pork Chops

Aunt Barbie’s Rice Pilaf

The rice is what the pork chops are on. I didn’t think to take a picture with just the rice, I will add one soon. If you are looking for this recipe now, you can find it here.

This is my Aunt Barbie’s recipe for rice pilaf. I don’t know when she first started making it but I don’t remember a holiday dinner without it. My aunt and uncle owned a restaurant and it was also served there for years as a side dish. It is easy to make and tastes great! It also freezes well.

She got so she would brown the rice and spaghetti in a pan that could go in the oven. My mom and I bought her a Le Creuset pan way back when they first started being sold here. It became her rice pilaf pan, going from stovetop to oven. Then after she added the chicken stock she would put it in the oven for an hour.
