Methods Of Cooking Pork Chops And Rice In a Dutch Oven

If you are making this as one of our easy campfire recipes, you’ll need to get your fire going in order to cook over a nice bed of campfire coals. If you don’t want to get a full campfire going, you can just light a batch of charcoal briquettes.

You’ll be simmering this recipe with the lid on the oven but all of the heat is from below the oven so you can easily make this as one of our camp stove recipes if you’d like to cook with propane using a portable camp stove or RV stovetop.

Steps To Make This Dinner

Step 1. Prepare your ingredients as directed.

Step 2. Prepare your heat source for cooking in a 12-inch Dutch oven using heat from the bottom.
Step 3. Heat the pot over medium heat then add the oil to the bottom of the Dutch oven.

Step 4. Season both sides of the pork chops with salt and pepper. Then, add them to the Dutch oven, turning to brown both sides. Remember, you are just browning the meat here, it will get fully cooked later.

Camp Cooking Tip: The meat must make contact with the hot oil in the bottom of the Dutch oven to brown nicely. If you can’t fit all of the pork chops in the oven together, just brown them in batches like I did in the video.

Step 5. Once they are browned, remove the pork chops from the Dutch oven and set them aside.

Step 6. Now, add the rice, Worcestershire sauce and beef broth to the bottom of the oven, stirring to combine all of the ingredients. Then place all of the pork chops back into the pot over the rice mixture.

Step 7. Add the bell pepper, onion, garlic and tomatoes to the pot to cover the pork chops, then sprinkle the oregano over everything and cover with a tight-fitting lid.

Step 8. Using medium-low heat under the oven, simmer the pork chops until they are cooked through and the rice is tender, about 20 – 30 minutes. Serve with fresh parsley, if desired.

What To Serve With This Meal

When I am serving camping dinner recipes that contain meat, rice and veggies … I call it good. If I want to serve more people, I add a side salad and crusty bread to stretch the dish.
