Harry's Cooking with Gladys Knight's Spanish Pork Chops



The Empress of Soul, Gladys Knight, sings with her heart and soul, and it seems she cooks the same way, judging by this recipe!



If you haven’t watched "Harry," the TV show that's a blend of talk, music, comedy, and variety, starring Harry Connick, Jr., you’re in for an entertaining hour.  There isn’t much this guy who was born and raised in New Orleans can’t do!  


Harry’s a great melodic singer/pianist/composer; he proved his acting ability in the movie "Hope Floats,” and he’s a devoted husband to his wife and 3 daughters ~ a family man at heart who idolizes his 90-year-old father ~ and, the guy likes to cook too, his specialty being NOLA food and BBQ!

He has a quick wit, he’s funny, funny; however,  he does not take kindly to being interrupted when he’s speaking, nor does he interrupt anyone. I've seen him chew a person out more than once or twice for doing that to him!

Gladys & Harry
As for Gladys Knight, she appeared on his show earlier this year, and cooked Spanish Pork Chops, which I knew for sure, I’d be trying soon.  What’s not to like:  a pork chop, slice of onion, a thickly cut ring of bell pepper holding a serving of rice!  That’s right down my alley!

I did adapt her recipe slightly.  I finished the dish in the oven instead of on the stove-top.  Feel free to continue cooking it on the stove-top, if you desire.  I just thought it would be easier to let the oven do the cooking and I wouldn’t have to keep checking up on it.





The dish was great, very delicious!  The chops were tender and tasty, as well as the onions and the peppers.  The mild flavor of the rice was perfect with the addition of V-8 poured over it all.  Who knew that V-8 juice would make such a flavorful sauce for pork chops and rice!

If you’re looking for something a little different to cook on a chilly evening ~ here you go, try this!  

It’s a keeper that I will be making again!

  12. The dish makes for a nice presentation. I would use red bell peppers though as my husband doesn't care for the green ones...just won't be as much of a color contrast.
