This turned out great. I didn't have all of the spices, but what I did have made a very nice meal. I substituted chicken stock for the water and used brown rice.

I quick browned two 3/4in well seasoned pork chops. Halved the recipe EXCEPT: no chili pd and only ONE cup tomatos w/juice.
Added 3 cloves fresh pressed garlic near the end of browning 1 cup longgrain white rice.
Cooked 4 min on 15lbs pressure. Let cool 6 min then quick released pressure.
Chops were done but tender; rice was cooked but not mushy.

WOW- just made for the 2nd time tonight and it was wonderful! I used stewed tomatoes, cubanelle pepper and one pack of Badia Sazon Tropical. ( I omitted the chili powder.) This recipe is such a KEEPER! Thank you

I just bought a pressure cooker and was eager to make something in it that wasn't just a stew. This turned out fabulous! The pork was so wonderfully tender I can't believe I suffered through tough chops all these years when all i needed was a pressure cooker.

I fixed this tonight and my husband and I both enjoyed it. I used brown rice so cooked it for 20 min. We like things a bit spicier so I may add a little more chili powder next time. But it was really good.

I halved this recipe and it worked out. Just a couple of comments/observances.

One reviewer mentioned the chops were "tasteless" so I did add a little seasoning to them before browning them. For my tastes, I think next time I'll add more seasoning.

Also, I think the chops could have been a bit tenderer. The rice was perfect though. It's a fine balance on cooking these two together. I think next time I will try to find a thinner chop---I noticed the thinner chop was much more tender.

Lastly, the directions didn't state how quickly to release the pressure. I let mine "naturally" release for about 6 minutes then opened the valve to release the remaining steam. I guessed on how to do this part. Luckily it worked out fine. I am new to the pressure cooker.

This was easy and fabulous! My son who "hates pork" gobbled it up.

My mom has used this recipe for over 40 years. I love it and make it all the time myself.

This was an easy recipe and the rice was tasty. However, the pork was dry and unflavored. There were no directions about mixing the pork in with the rest before putting on the lid of the pressure cooker. This might have helped the porks texture and flavor.

Very easy recipe. This dish had a lot of favor but not spicey. The rice was done just right and absorbed the flavors of the pork and the vegetables. I wouldn't change a thing. I cut this recipe in half and it worked just fine.
