Bring some flair and flavor to dinner tonight with these savory pork chops and rice baked in a tangy tomato-based sauce and cooked to tender perfection.
Preheat oven to 350˚F. Pat pork chops dry with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a large Dutch oven set over. In 4 batches, brown pork chops for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until browned all over; remove from pan.
Add remaining oil to pan. Cook onions, bell pepper, and garlic for 3 to 5 minutes or until they start to soften. Stir in rice, sazon and adobo seasoning. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until rice is well coated. Stir in tomato juice, broth, vinegar, and hot sauce; bring to a boil. Place pork chops back in the pan. Cover and bake for 25 to 35 minutes or until rice is tender and absorbs most of the liquid and pork chops are tender.
Let stand covered for 10 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork and sprinkle with cilantro. Serve with additional hot sauce if desired.
Substitute pork chops with chicken thighs if desired.
