Herb Stuffed Pork Chops

My other half absolutely loves stuffed pork chops and I have to admit until I came up with this one, I wasn’t a fan either. Don’t let the list of ingredients scare you off, it really only takes a couple of minutes to throw this one together.

The key to decent stuffed pork chops is to pick chops that have a nice layer of fat on the side. This imparts a tremendous amount of flavor during cooking.

If you’d like another variation, you can finely dice peeled apples or pears and simmer it on the stove with a couple of tablespoons of brown sugar and a dash of cinnamon. Spoon it over the top of the finished pork chops just prior to serving.
