Pork Chop Baked Rice

This is one of the popular dish that served at those Hong Kong Cafe 香港茶餐厅 which I adored :D I most likely to order this particular dish when I visited such cafe in Singapore :D For a healthier version, I replaced the white rice from the original recipe with brown rice instead, still as delicious!

Healthy fried brown rice with omelette

tangy tomato onion gravy

The pan-fried pork chops tasted slightly on the dry side when eaten alone :( but along with the tangy tomato sauce and cheesy topping, it managed to compensate the dryness. Overall it is very tasty and well-liked by my kids. Kids simply loves tomato sauce and cheese :D :D

  2. To make fried rice, heat 2 tbsp oil in heated pan. Add in beaten eggs and scrambled it lightly. Add in cooked rice and seasoning and toss evenly to mix. Add in spring onion and stir well. Set aside.
  3. Coat marinated pork chop with some flour. Add some oil in pan, pan fry pork chop over medium high heat in batches until golden brown. Set aside.

  6. Add in tomatoes, water, tomato sauce and seasoning and bring to boil for 1 min. Dish up.
  7. To assemble : Place adequate amount of fried rice in a heatproof bowl. Spread some onion tomato sauce over the rice. Place 2-3 slices of pork chops over the rice layering with some of the tomato sauce. Sprinkle some cheddar cheese over. 
  8. Bake in preheated oven at 230 deg cel for 15 mins until the cheese melted and mixture heated through. Serve warm.

Good morning Peng! Your baked rice is deliciously looking. Do I hv to cook the Brown rice 1 day in advance? And the water level for the rice should be lesser or normal so that after it is baked the texture will be just nice? Thanks!

Iris...not necessary to cook rice in advance :) I usually add another half cup of water (using the same cup when measuring rice). You can also soak the rice for 30 mins before cooking it.

Peng, your baked rice does look like those I've eaten in Hong Kong. Great healthy version using brown rice. I want to try to bake this soon too :) Looks perfect for a one-dish meal.
