DIRECTIONS

  • To prepare pork chops for stuffing, make a 2-inch-wide slit on edge of chop opposite the bone and cut into center, making a deep enough pocket to hold stuffing in the middle of each chop. Set aside.
  • To make stuffing, saute minced onions, bacon, celery, spinach and apples in butter until onions look translucent. Add chicken broth and poultry seasoning and bring to a boil. Add raisins and cook 3 minutes, or until soft. Remove from heat. Add croutons, or stuffing mix, stir, season with salt and pepper and set aside until cooled to room temperature.
  • Divide stuffing into four equal portions and stuff pork chops. Season stuffed chops with salt and pepper and dust with flour.
  • In a pan large enough to hold the 4 chops, heat oil on medium high heat and brown the chops (about 2 to 3 minutes on each side), then reduce heat to medium. Add chicken broth, julienned onions, and mushrooms. Bring to a boil, then cover with foil, or an oven-proof lid, and bake in 350ºF oven for 35 to 40 minutes. Remove pork chops when done and keep warm while making pan gravy.
  • Place pan with drippings on medium heat and skim off fat. Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer. Thicken with cornstarch/water mixture by adding gradually until gravy reaches the consistency you like.
