‘No Peek’ Pork Chops

 6-8    pork chops (as many as you want)
    1    cup raw rice
    1    packet Lipton onion soup mix
    1    can cream of mushroom soup
    1    can cream of chicken soup
 1½    soup cans of water
          Salt, pepper and paprika (optional)


Mix soup, water and rice in a large skillet or roaster. Season pork chops with salt and pepper and place on top. Sprinkle with paprika. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour for thin chops to about 1.5 hours for thicker chops. If it looks dry, add a little more water (in case you peeked)!


A HAUGEN FAMILY STAPLE: Nothing is better than a good, hot meal when returning home from work. This recipe was made often by Dale's mother on the farm, as it was easy and could keep warm in the oven. She shared the recipe with Dale’s wife, Karen, and still today the Haugens enjoy this meal monthly.
