There really is a pork chop in there, I promise. ;)
I decided to take a spin on a classic favorite of ours, Stuffed Pork Chops, adding in some chopped apples and saute'd onion and celery. It was fantastic, and the whole family enjoyed this meal. Even our son, who will eat any vegetable, but put one bite of meat in front of him and he gags. He wasn't too fond of the pork chops (no surprise) but he told me several times that he loved the stuffing. I'm happy to receive any compliment about supper from him, even if it's reserved for just the stuffing.
Apple Stuffed Pork Chops
1 box stuffing mix (I used low sodium chicken flavor)
1/2 Tbsp olive oil
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 apple, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup chicken broth
4 boneless pork loin chops
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Place chops in baking dish. Meanwhile, prepare stuffing according to package directions, and cook celery and onion in a skillet with olive oil. Stir chopped apple, cooked celery and onion, and chicken broth into stuffing. Scoop stuffing onto tops of pork chops. Cover with foil; bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil; return baking dish to oven and bake an additional 10-15 minutes or until stuffing is lightly browned.
Turn this into a slow cooker meal: Do not cook the stuffing or vegetables. Instead, mix together the stuffing mix, chopped celery, onion, apple with 1/4 cup butter or margarine and 1 cup chicken broth. Place half the stuffing mixture into bottom of a 3-qt slow cooker. Place chops on top, then cover with remainng stuffing mixture. Cover and cook on low setting for 6-8 hours or until pork chops are done.
