Ingredients

  • 2 boneless pork chops thick cut
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 stalks celery chopped
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • ½ cup honey crisp apple chopped
  • ½ tablespoon thyme
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries room temperature
  • ½ tsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp dried sherry
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • ½ tsp crushed rosemary
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
  • ground pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Prepare Apple Cranberry Stuffing

  • In a saute pan or skillet on medium heat, melt the butter and saute onion and celery until softened; about 15 minutes. Add the apples, thyme, rosemary, parsley, salt and pepper and cook for another 5 minutes. Finally add the cranberries and blend into the mixture.
  • Place the celery, onion, cranberry and apple mixture in a bowl and mix in the breadcrumbs, one egg, chicken broth and vermouth. Stuffing should be moist once all liquid has been added and combined.

Prepare Pork Chops

  • Butterfly the pork chops by slicing them parallel to the plane of the chop from the fat side. Leave approximately 1/4 inch as shown in the picture to form a large pocket.
  • Season the inside of the chops with salt, pepper and rosemary. Stuff each pork chop with about 2 to 3 tablespoons of the stuffing mixture. Feel free to use your hands to pack the stuffing into the pocket.
  • Place the chops on a shallow baking dish or cookie sheet. Season the outside of the chops with rosemary, salt and pepper. Bake for 45 minutes or until an instant thermometer reads 145 degrees.
