Dream Dinners Indigo Pork Chops with Jasmine Rice

Enjoy savory-sweet pork chops with blueberry sauce and jalapenos for a hint of heat. This meal pairs well with an Italian Barbera.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes


  • 6 pork chops
  • 2 tsp Montreal steak seasoning (to season pork chops)
  • 1 1/2 cups jasmine rice
  • 2 Tbsp dried onion flakes
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 1/4 cup sliced jalapeno peppers
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup white cooking wine


  1. Prepare sauce by combining onion flakes, salt, garlic, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, blueberries, jalapenos, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, and white cooking wine in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, add jasmine rice and 2 1/4 cups water. Bring to a boil, stir once, cover, and cook on low heat for 20-25 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, add sauce to a medium-sized saute pan over medium heat. Heat the sauce for 15-20 minutes until simmering, and the blueberries can be mashed with a spoon. Mash blueberries to thicken the sauce.
  4. Season pork chops with Montreal steak seasoning. Add 1 Tbsp olive oil to a large frying pan (or spray with non-stick cooking spray) and pan fry pork chops for 3-4 minutes per side (internal temperature should be 145* F).
  5. Serve the pork chops over jasmine rice and drizzle sauce over the top. Pair with Dream Dinners oven-roasted broccoli and an Italian Barbera wine. Enjoy!
