Stuffed Pork Chops

  • This recipe is modified/simplified from the one posted on CFSCC presents: Eat This!  I was never a fan of pork chops … until now!  Before I’d have to douse them in apple sauce or mac & cheese in order to consume.
  • 1 apple, 1 yellow onion, 4 strips of bacon, and 4 thick cut boneless pork chops
  • Cook & dice the bacon, dice the apple, dice and sauté the onion in the bacon fat.  Once the onions are sautéed add the diced apple for a couple minutes until apple bits start to soften.  Add the diced bacon, stir and shut off heat.
  • Cook the pork chops about 4-5 minutes each side on medium-low heat, stuff with apple/bacon/onion stuffing, and cook in oven on 350 for 20-25.  We use toothpicks to close the pork chops and help prevent leakage.  Top the cooked pork chops with the rest of the stuffing after briefly re-heating and enjoy your possibly newfound love of pork chops!
  • Also works with lamb chops.  Both pork chops and lamb chops are pictured.
