Stuffed Center Cut Pork Loin Chops


This was the first time I've done this in over 13 years and I used to stuff them with shrimp, crab and rice dressing and top with a shrimp sauce when time to serve.  I got that recipe from Paul Prudomme's cooking show (aka how to cook Cajun Style while sitting down  :) )  However, this time I just used green onions, anaheim pepper, french onion soup, chicken broth, minced garlic and McCormick's Steak Seasoning.

Saute onions and peppers in butter

Add French Onion soup or a creamed soup of choice (think I'll use Cream of Celery next time.
Add Chicken Broth to desired consistency and let simmer for a while

While simmering take your "thick cut" Chops and cut a deep pocket in them, careful not to cut thru

Toss in a little Pepperidge Farms herb stuffing mix or cooked rice (which I will use next time)
Lightly toss but don't let stuffing get soggy

Then spoon stuffing into pockets and close - - you can put toothpicks at the seam to hold if desired

You can then put them in a baking dish, cover and cook on 350 for 45 minutes or until no longer pink
Today I put them on the grill over some hot coals first and then finished in the baking dish

These same out tasty

but NEXT TIME it will be Cajun Style and if Sherry doesn't like it then I'll eat both

They were tasty for sure, Dale, but I found another stuffing recipe the other day that has Granny Smith Apples and brown sugar plus some other things and that's gonna be my next effort.

Now, that sounds good; pork and apples seem to go real good together.

Welps, Em(I), I tweeked the stuffing this time and it's much better but still not "exactly" like I want.  Think I'll cut back on the chopped sweet onions and increas the brown sugar and bacon.  I may also add some Sweet Baby Ray's Q sauce and pepper of some kind - - probably just black pepper or penners. (not sure but it needed some kick to go with the sweet)

Today I made a stuffing out of:

I finely chopped Granny Smith apple

1/2 cup finely choped sweet onion

one finely diced strip of bacon

and 4 to 6 "double pnches" of brown sugar

Brown the bacon in a large skillet and while browning dump in the onions and sautee them.  When the bacon is almost done put in the chopped apple and brown sugar, stirring constantly until sugar has become a liquid.

Remove from heat and spoon into previously cut pocket in a thick cut pork chop.  I season the inside and outside of the pork chop with rib rub about an hour before stuffing.

After the pork chop is stuffed, remove the remaining stuffing/sauce to a plate and brown both sides of the chop in the skillet, being careful not to aloow the stuffing to fall out.

When both sides are browned, place in a lightly greease baking dish and cover with foil.  Then finish baking in a 350 degree over until pork chop is done.
