Progresso® chicken broth provides a simple addition to these maple flavored pork chops served with pumpkin risotto – a flavorful Italian dinner that’s ready in 35 minutes.

Ingredients

2
tablespoons margarine or butter
4
center-cut pork loin chops
Salt and pepper to taste, if desired
1 1/2
teaspoons maple flavoring
3/4
cup uncooked Arborio or other short-grain white rice
1
clove garlic, finely chopped
1
cup canned pumpkin
3
cups Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32 oz carton)
1/4
cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4
teaspoon salt

Directions

  • 1 Melt margarine in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper. Cook pork in margarine 5 minutes, turning once, until brown. Remove pork from skillet; brush both sides with maple flavoring.
  • 2 Add rice and garlic to skillet. Cook over medium heat 30 seconds, stirring frequently. Stir in pumpkin and 1/2 cup of the broth. Cook uncovered, stirring frequently, until liquid is absorbed. Stir in an additional 1/2 cup broth. Continue cooking about 15 minutes, stirring constantly and adding broth 1/2 cup at a time after previous additions have been absorbed.
  • 3 Add pork and any remaining broth to skillet. Cover and cook 5 to 10 minutes or until pork is slightly pink when cut near bone and rice is creamy and just tender. Stir in cheese and salt.

Expert Tips

Never rinse rice before making risotto or you will wash off some of the grain's starch, which is so important to this creamy dish.

Sprinkle the risotto with toasted pumpkin seeds. Rinse the seeds, and pat dry on paper towels. To toast, bake uncovered on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray in a 375° oven about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
