The Chopped Dinner Challenge is a new series of recipes showing you how easy it is to cook like a winning Chopped competitor. Every week, FN Dish will showcase a recipe created by Food Network Kitchens that uses at least one of the Chopped basket ingredients, plus basic grocery goods and simple staples. Consider it your very own Chopped challenge. Just take this frequent tip from the judges: Don’t forget to season!
For this week’s Chopped Dinner Challenge, the chefs of Food Network Kitchens chose to feature the basket ingredient smoked pork chops, which have a ton of smokehouse flavor that can work with a number of dishes. But the pork takes on an Asian inspiration in this recipe for Vietnamese Grilled Smoked Pork Chop Rice Bowls, which uses the smoked pork to top a flavorful and filling rice bowl. It’s a supper your family will appreciate for its sweet, savory and spicy tastes. Plus it’s infinitely more fun and creative than ordering takeout.
