boneless pork loin chops, 3/4 inch thick (about 1 1/3 lb)
In 12-inch nonstick skillet, mix rice, seasoning package from rice mix and water. Heat to boiling over medium heat. Cover; cook 7 minutes. Add broccoli; cook 3 minutes longer.
Spoon rice and broccoli onto 4 dinner plates. Cover to keep warm.
Wipe out skillet. In same skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Sprinkle salt and pepper over pork; place in skillet. Cook 4 to 6 minutes or until bottoms are browned.
