Ingredients List
  1. 4 bone-in pork chops, 1-inch thick (about 2 lbs.)
  2. 3 Tbsp. Knorr® Chicken flavor Bouillon, divided
  3. 4 Tbsp. margarine, divided
  4. 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  5. 1 large sweet potato or yam, peeled and cubed
  6. 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  7. 3 1/2 cups water
  8. 1 1/2 cups uncooked long grain rice
  9. 1 can (15.5 oz.) black beans, drained
  10. 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro



1. Sprinkle pork chops evenly with 1 tablespoon Knorr® Chicken flavor Bouillon and rub into meat. Melt 2 tablespoons margarine in large deep nonstick skillet over high heat and brown chops. Remove chops and set aside.

2. Melt remaining 2 tablespoon margarine in same skillet over medium-high heat and cook onion, sweet potato and garlic, stirring occasionally, until starting to brown, about 8 minutes. Stir in water, rice and remaining Bouillon. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer covered 15 minutes.
