Tasty Stuffed Pork Chops
2 tbsp. Butter
½ cup Yellow Onion, chopped
1 cup Fresh Mushrooms, chopped
¼ tsp. Dried Sage
¼ tsp. Salt
¼ tsp. Black Pepper
1 cup Bread Crumbs
2 tbsp. Vegetable Broth (can use water)
4 (1 ½ inch thick) Bone-in Rib Pork Chops
as needed Salt & Black Pepper
In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat and add the onions and mushrooms. Saute until tender, about 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat and add the sage, salt, pepper and bread crumbs. Now add enough of the broth to moisten and hold stuffing together. Set aside and take each pork chop and trim excess fat off. Then cut a pocket in each chop into the bone but leaving 3 sides intact. Sprinkle the inside of pockets with salt and pepper. Spoon the stuffing into the pockets and secure with kitchen twine or toothpicks. Place the chops in a 9x13 baking dish, add any remaining stuffing and broth before covering. Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Under the dish and continue baking for another 20 minutes or until chops are tender and done. Remove twine or tooth before serving.
Note: Add 1/3 cup of sour cream or plain yogurt to stuffing before putting it in chop for a little different taste.
Note: When buying pork chops look for pale pink ones. The darker colored ones tend to be t ough and have less flavor.
