hong kong-style pork chop baked rice

If you haven't tried Hong Kong food, you definitely should! They might not be the healthiest food, but it's definitely one of the best cuisines. This dish is one of my favorites growing up. My local HK friends would take me out for this baked rice dish. Miss the good old times. :) This recipe is a combination of few recipes I found online. It turned out great!
