Pork Chops with Apples and Stuffing

Sunday, August 3, 2008

This recipe is an easy spin on classic flavors. It only takes about 15 minutes to prepare everything and the rest is baking time. I love to cook with pork chops because they are usually a very clean cut of meat and come in perfectly portioned pieces. It is a healthier protein source than red meat but breaks up the monotony of chicken. Helpful hint: make sure your oil is hot enough before you put your pork chops in or they will not brown up the way you want them to and you will just end up cooking them on the stove top.

1 TBSP vegetable oil
1 (6-oz) pkg crushed stuffing mix (you also need butter for making the stuffing)
1 (21-oz) can apple pie filling with cinnamon


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
2. Heat oil in a skillet over high heat; until it crackles when water is dropped into it
3. When your oil is ready, brown the pork chops (only 5 minutes a side) you do not need to cook them through at this point this is just to give them color
4. Meanwhile, prepare stuffing according to package directions
5. Spread pie filling into a greased 8-x 8-in baking dish.
6. Place the pork chops on top of the apples, spoon stuffing over the pork chops
7. Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes
