Pork Chops and Rice

2 boneless pork chops
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 small white onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 1/4 cup water
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
8 oz can tomato sauce
3/4 cup uncooked long grain rice

Salt and pepper both sides of the pork chops.
Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add the pork chops to the skillet and brown, about 3-4 minutes per side. Set aside.
In the same skillet used for the pork chops, cook the onions and garlic over medium heat until tender.
Add in the water, brown sugar, salt, pepper, and tomato sauce and bring to a boil.
Add the rice to the tomato mixture and top with the pork chops.
Cover and simmer for 25-30 minutes, or until the rice is tender and the pork chops are cooked through.
Divide the rice between two plates, and top each one with a pork chop.
