    6 center cut pork chops ½ - ¾ inch thick seasoned with salt and pepper
    2 tablespoons oil
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    1 small white onion, chopped
    2 cups rice, uncooked
    4 plum tomatoes, chopped
    2 medium jalapeno chiles, minced
    1 cup beer or water
    2 cups chicken broth or water
    Fresh cilantro, chopped


Heat oil in large skillet, add pork. Sear pork on both sides on medium-high heat just until brown, about 1 minute on each side. Remove from skillet and cover loosely with foil.

Add garlic and onions to skillet. Cook and stir until tender, about 2 minutes, scraping down brown bits from bottom of skillet. Add rice, stirring constantly until rice just begins to brown, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add tomatoes, jalapenos, beer, broth, or water. Bring to boil; cover. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer 10 minutes.

Place pork on top of rice; cover. Simmer 8 or 9 minutes until internal temperature reads 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Let stand 5minutes before serving. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro if desired.
