Pocket Pork Chops

Recipe by Auntd210 Oppel

This recipe has been posted on the "Pork" The other white meat website. I was looking for a good recipe to use some butterfly pork chops with and decided to try this one....

My Stovetop stuffing mix was also only 6 ounces, so I reduced measurements to about 3/4 of everything. The stuffing was EXCELLENT... Very moist and flavorful. Unfortunately, my pork chops were barely an inch thick, so making the pocket in them made them even thinner. I should have reduced the cooking time accordingly but didn't think about it until the timer went off. The pork came out dry and tough, but we loved the stuffing. I will use the stuffing recipe again, but we're not big fans of pork. Thanks!
