Weeknight Dinner: Stuffed Pork Chops

Print Friendly and PDF
My mom LOVES pork chops.  In fact, when I was home for Thanksgiving I went food shopping with my mom and dad.  They have such a cute routine where they go every week together after looking through the ads.  My mom is the queen of budget shopping!  But, now that no one is home with them, it's funny that sometimes they still buy huge amounts of meat.  They bought that "family pack" of pork chops which has like 12 pork chops whatever kinds (with bone, without bone, etc) they throw in it.  I thought it was pretty funny.

But then, John and I got snowed in at home...and I needed to enter a cooking video for a contest.  I opened the fridge, poked around, took out those frozen pork chops from my shopping trip with my parents, and made up this recipe.  I had a blast filming with everyone watching, and I think they enjoyed it, too.  At first, M, complained, "do we have to have a recipe contest recipe?" as if they were too bizarre or creative for her to think about eating, but in the end, everyone loved them and I'm so happy to share them with you!
Stuffed Pork Chops
Serves:  6
6 pork chops, we used cutlets no bones
1 tablespoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 teaspoons pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 apples, peeled and diced
1/2 cup cranberries, diced
3/4 cup blue cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Cut pockets in the pork chops, slicing about halfway through the chop.  Combine garlic powder, sea salt, pepper, and paprika.  Season both sides of the pork chops with the paprika mixture.  Mix together the apple, cranberries, and blue cheese.  Mix well.  Stuff the pork chop pockets full.  Place on a glass baking sheet and cook in the oven for 30 - 40 minutes, until fully cooked through. 

This is a great stuffing that I'd love in seasoned chicken, etc.  Also, the cooking contest was for Lawhorn's Signature Seasoning.  If you live in the south you have probably seen it at your local grocery store.  I ordered mine on-line but liked the flavors a lot, and that I would substitute for the spice blend I showed above. 

Until the next time my oven is on...
