Cheddar & Apple Stuffed Pork

I have been meaning to post this for a while now. About 1 – 1/2 weeks ago I made this AMAZING dinner. It is so good, and is now a favorite. I have “permission” to make this every month. I am not a fan of porkchops, but I like those little pork sirloins you can buy. I made three and there was a lot of “stuffing” left over. So when I was done cooking up the sirloins I tossed the stuffing onto the pan, heated through and served with dinner. We just scooped it on top of our pork.

Cheddar & Apple Stuffed Pork

Stuffing

  • 1/2 a red onion, chopped
  • 2 large apples, peeled and grated
  • 1-1/2 cups medium cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/2 tsp dried sage (I forgot to add this, so I sprinkled it over the pork)

Pork chops

    4 porkchops, butterfly cut (I use pork sirloin) 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter, melted salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Preparation:

Prep time: 20 min • Cook time: 15 min

Combine all stuffing ingredients and season generously. Top half of each pork chop with 1/4 of the stuffing mixture. Fold the other half over the stuffing and secure with toothpicks.

Grease and pre-heat a ribbed cast-iron skillet to medium. Baste pork chops with melted butter, and season with salt and pepper.

When oil has begun to smoke, place chops in skillet. Cover, reduce heat slightly and let cook for 5 to 7 minutes on each side, turning only once, or until fully cooked. Serve with grilled vegetables.
