Baked Pork Chops with Tomatoes and Creamed Corn

I first had this dish a couple of years ago from Cafe De Coral in Hong Kong. This "Cafe" is actually a fast food franchise which popped up everywhere we went....guess it was Hong Kong's equivalent to our MacDonalds. And like MacDonalds, we ate here a lot, possibly way too many times considering there were so many other great places we could have eaten at. Still, at least I came away with this dish : )

4 pork chops
2 cloves garlic
1 onion (cut into wedges)
1 tin diced tomatoes
1/2 can creamed corn
1 cup chicken stock
1 capsicum (cut into wedges)
4 cups cooked rice
Diced tasty cheese (about 150g but that's a guess because I just throw on whatever I have or feel like)
Salt and Pepper

1. Heat a pan, shake some salt and pepper on the pork chops then cook it for about 2mins each side (doesn't have to be cooked through as you will be adding other ingredients and placing in oven later).
2. Add the garlic and onions and cook for further 5mins.

3. Add the tin of tomatoes, creamed corn and chicken stock, cook another 5mins.

4. Meanwhile, spread the cooked rice out on a casserole dish.

5. Add the capsicum, stir and taste to see if you need more salt or pepper.

6. Pour the pork chop mixture over the rice.
6. Sprinkle the cheese over the top and bake in the oven for around 20mins.

Or in our case we add LOADS of cheese

Fresh out of the oven
