Pork Chops With Savory Apple Stuffing

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by MarthaStewartWanabe

This is an easy and delicious way to serve pork chops--another of my favorite warm and hearty comfort foods. The pork chops turn out juicy and are complimented by the stuffing flavored with apples, garlic, onions and savory seasonings. In my opinion, homemade stuffing rivals any store-bought mix. The stuffing under the pork chops is moistened and flavored by the meat juices while the stuffing on the surface is crispy and buttery--my favorite part! If you desire all of your stuffing to be moist, cover the baking pan with aluminum foil while in the oven. Enjoy!

Wonderful pork chops! Just as you promised, warm and hearty comfort food. I followed as written except that I used about 1 1/4 C broth in the stuffing as we like it crispy. The bottom stuffing still turned out soft for the kids who like it that way. I will definitely be making this again, thx for posting.
