Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon cracked peppercorns
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 pork chops trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
Vegetable Rice Pilaf:
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 4 carrots thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup long grain rice
  • 1 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 3/4 cups cut green beans

Method

Vegetable Rice Pilaf: In saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion, carrots, thyme and salt, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Add rice, stirring to coat; pour in stock and bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with green beans; cook, covered, until rice is tender and beans are tender-crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Fluff with fork.

Meanwhile, combine oil, lemon rind and juice, pepper and salt ; spread all over pork. Let stand for 10 minutes. In greased grill pan or large nonstick skillet, cook chops over medium heat until golden and just a hint of pink remains inside, 4 to 6 minutes per side. Serve on rice. Sprinkle with parsley.
