Pork and Rice

1 generous cup uncooked rice
one envelope dried onion soup mix
1/4 cup (half stick) butter or margarine, melted
1 can cream of mushroom soup
about six boneless pork steaks, cut into pieces about 3 inches wide
pinch each of thyme, rosemary, and basil
chopped scallions (optional)

What to Do
Pour butter into baking dish.  Add rice.  Layer chunks of pork steak over the rice.  Smear canned soup over pork and sprinkle the spices and onion soup mix over the top.  Cook at 350 F. for about an hour or till pork is done and rice is tender.  Garnish with some chopped scallions if you have them.  Let sit for about 5 minutes. Will thicken slightly.  

More optional additions:  Add some pine nuts about half way through cooking time, or dried cranberries or raisins, or peas.  Haven't tried all of those at once, but someday I might.
