1 env. onion soup mix
2 tbsp. pimento, diced
2 tbsp. fat or drippings
1 c. uncooked rice

Brown chops in fat. Spread rice in rectangular baking dish (13 x 9 inch). Reserve 1 tablespoon of seasoning from soup mix. Sprinkle soup mix over rice. Drain mushrooms, reserving liquid and sprinkle mushrooms and pimento over rice. Add mushroom liquid to water and pour over rice. Arrange chops on top of rice mixture and sprinkle reserved seasoning from onion mix.

Remove foil and continue cooking for 10 minutes or until any excess liquid has evaporated.
