Apple Stuffed Pork Chops with Herbed Gravy

Apple Stuffed Pork Chops with Herbed Gravy

I interrupt this apple week and all my Shugary sweets to bring you this savory dish.

I know some of you might have the same dilemma as I do. What to make for dinner?

This is one fantastic meal. I’ve always loved a good stuffed pork chop. Years ago, stuffed pork chops are what my mom cooked every year for our Christmas dinner. And we inhaled them.

Guess what? I inhaled this too. The peppery, herbed gravy just completely finishes this dinner.

We served ours with some ROASTED BROCCOLI.

Apple Stuffed Pork Chops with Herbed Gravy

Ingredients

    For the Pork Chops:
  • 5-6 large boneless pork chops, 1 1/2-2 inch thick
  • 1/2 small yellow onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 apples, chopped (I used Crunchpak), no need to peel
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 3 cup soft bread cubes
  • 2 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • For the Gravy:
  • 1 Tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup heavy cream

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine bread cubes with melted butter, apples, onion, celery, poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Cut a large pocket in each pork chop by making a horizontal cut through the meat. Press a large spoonful of stuffing into each pocket, really PRESS it in there until all stuffing and pork chops are done.
  3. In a large oven safe skillet, heat oil. Brown the pork chops on both sides for 3 minutes per side. Cover skillet with foil and bake for 30 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Uncover and bake an additional 30 minutes, or until internal temperature of the meat is 160degrees.
  4. Remove pork chops from skillet and place on large serving platter. Tent with foil.
  5. With remaining juices in skillet, heat over medium heat. Sprinkle with flour, salt and pepper and stir for one minutes. Slowly pour in water and poultry seasoning, scraping the bits off the bottom of the pan. Bring to a boil and cook for 2 minutes. Add cream slowly and heat until thickened. You may want to season with more salt and pepper to taste. When thickened, remove from heat. Serve with pork chops. ENJOY!

I used to make a similar dish with pie filling and stuffing, but this version looks MUCH more refined than my throw-everything-in-a-pan dish. Love the fact these are stuffed!

Hey don’t knock the one pan dinners…I’ve had that too and it’s quite delish!

My hubby’s fave thing to have for dinner is pork chops–I’ve made ‘em with apples before, but never stuffed! Totally pinning this to make for him later. This looks great!

It’s so good. DON’T skip the gravy :)

You are my hero! I’m a baker not a dinner maker. This will be such a treat for the family and such a change up from the boring grilled or baked pork chops I usually serve. I’ll have to double the gravy, my hubby likes his food soaked in gravy! Pinned.

I have to admit something…I have never had a stuffed pork chop. Now I really really want to try one, with lots of stuffing and extra gravy:-) It sounds really, really, really good!!!

Do you cook the celery and onions before putting them in the stuffing?

Reply

aimee @ shugarysweets April 7, 2013 at 7:44 pm

Hi Evelyn, I do not cook them before hand. They soften during the baking process (and just a slight crunch is left). However, if you prefer VERY soft, no crunch, feel free to saute them for a few minutes in a skillet with some butter or olive oil)!

Tried it today, and glad I did! I was so skeptical of the raw onions and celery in the stuffing, but they turned out great :) I accidentally bought the wrong chops, bone in, so I couldn’t even brown them. I cooked 5 chops in a large oven casserole dish for 45 mins, they turned out brown and delish! Thanks for the recipe!
