Instant Pot Pork Chop One Pot Meal

Instant Pot Pork Chops - the whole meal is cooked at once, then the potatoes mashed and the gravy made right in the instant pot.

I’ll tell you what, we went from a few lovely fall days to fall with a vengeance here in the Twin Cities. Windy, cold & blustery.

Peach Glazed Pork Tenderloin

Peach Glazed Pork Tenderloin: Easy, quick & great for dinner or company.

Blogging is weird sometimes. Which I hope I can say if you follow me, and apologize for doing so you’re someone who just stopped by in like 10 years to look at this recipe. But I make food, take a pic or two (or like a hundred, hoping to get a good one) and put it out there. And it’s kind of like having someone over for dinner. “Will you like it?” I wonder. Oh the angst.

Drunken Fried Rice

Drunken Fried Rice - Yes there IS such a thing and thank goodness because it's amazing! Just like drunken noodles but use leftover rice.

Drunken Fried Rice! Yes, there is such a thing and I’m soooo happy to know it! See, my baby sis just told me she was having leftover take out Drunken Noodles for lunch and a craving hit. Maybe even a touch of jealously. But poor me, no takeout, no noodles in the cupboard. I was planning on making Fried Rice, though, and made extra rice last night with dinner just so I’d have rice ready.

Better than Take-Out Pork Fried Rice.

Does it seem that time is just slipping by faster and faster or is it just me? I meant to post this for you as an option for leftovers from the Country Style Ribs in the Slow Cooker. I made that recipe months ago! At long last, here’s my favorite home-cooked better than take-out Pork Fried Rice. And I’m posting it right along with my newer Drunken Fried Rice, so you’ll have two options.
