Pork chops can be stuffed with a variety of tasty fillings, so there are many recipes to choose from when it comes to learning how to bake stuffed pork chops. Here are a few tasty stuffed pork chop recipes to get you started.
Corn Stuffed Pork Chops
Here is a fairly easy stuffed pork chop recipe to start with. First preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Then combine 1 1/2 cups dry bread crumbs, 2 tablespoons melted butter, 1 beaten egg and 2 cups corn. Cut a pocket into each pork chop by cutting into one side, leaving the other three intact. Now stuff the chops with the stuffing mix and place them in a baking dish. Pour a can of condensed cream of mushroom soup over the pork chops and bake them for 45 minutes.
Parsley Stuffed Pork Chops
Start by sauteing 2 tablespoons chopped celery and 2 tablespoons chopped onion in 1 tablespoon butter. Put the celery and onion mixture into a bowl and add 1/2 cup seasoned croutons, 3 tablespoons milk, 1 teaspoon fresh minced parsley, 1/4 teaspoon paprika, 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Mix until well blended, then cut pockets in the pork chops and stuff them with the mixture. Brown the pork chops in a skillet with 1 tablespoon butter, then place them in a baking dish. Pour 3/4 cup beef broth over the pork chops. Cover the baking dish and bake for 30-35 minutes. After the chops are done, remove them from the oven but keep them warm while making the gravy. To make the gravy, pour the pan drippings into a saucepan and bring them to a boil. Combine 1 tablespoon cornstarch with 2 tablespoons cold water and gradually stir the mixture into the pan drippings. Cook for 2 minutes or until thickened, continuing to stir the pan drippings as they cook. Serve the pork chops with the gravy.
Apple Cranberry Stuffed Pork Chops
Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Then melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Mince a yellow onion and cook 1/8 of it in the butter until the pieces start turning brown. Remove the onions from the heat and add 1 diced Granny Smith apple, 2 chopped celery ribs, 1/4 cup dried cranberries and 1 teaspoon salt. Now lay each pork chop on a cutting board and use a knife to cut into one side of the chop parallel to the cutting board in order to create a pocket. Stuff the apple-cranberry mixture into the pork chops. Melt the rest of the butter in the Dutch oven and fry the chops for two minutes on each side. Then cover the dish and bake the chops for 45 minutes. A few minutes before the pork chops will be done, stir together 1 cup apple juice, 1 tablespoon cornstarch and 2 tablespoons brown sugar. Pour this mixture into the Dutch oven and reduce over medium heat, stirring frequently until the volume of liquid is half what you started with. Add pepper to taste. Pour the apple juice glaze over the stuffed pork chops to serve.
