I found this recipe in an old recipe file a friend had. She'd never tried it but gave it to me. It's a little time consuming but well worth every minute. Although I've never frozen them, I bet they'd keep well for a quick dinner as this is easily doubled or tripled. This dish is a big hit with my family and friends. I usually make extra dressing for a side dish.

Not bad. Braising works well in this recipe. For non-stuffed thick cut chops I find increasing the temperature to 400 and reducing the time to 30-35 minutes works best. I really like ground coriander but it's overpowering in this recipe. The second time I made this I omitted the coriander and doubled the sage. I always brine the chops overnight in Kittencal's Basic Buttermilk Brine for Pork Chops - just personal preference.

The chops came out good, I just wish that the meat had a little bit more flavor to it.

I thought this was wonderful! I will make this again for when we have adult company. My kids can't appreciate a good meal like this one until they get older. This was pretty easy to prepare also which is an added bonus. Thanks so much for posting!
