Pork Chops and Apple Sauce

You all look like you need a break. Am I right? It is the first week in December and we are all feeling the gravitational force of Christmas and the Holidays pulling us closer, while many of us aren’t even close to being ready. So here is an easy and delicious dinner for you. If you have leftover stuffing even better. One. Two. Three. This meal is done in a flash and the meat is tender and juicy. I got this recipe from my cousin Cheryl. Thanks! We loved it!

HOW TO MAKE PORK CHOPS AND APPLE SAUCE

Sprinkle both sides of the pork chops with seasoned salt.


In a skillet over med-high heat sear both sides of the chops for about 3 minutes in about 2 T. olive oil.


In a 9 x 13 inch dish layer the apples. Prepare one stuffing mix according to package directions.


Top apples with seared pork chops.


Top with stuffing.


Bake in 400° oven for 30 minutes covered then 15 minutes uncovered.


Pork Chops and Apple Sauce
8 boneless pork chops *
one 21 ounce can apple pie filling
one 12.4 ounce package stuffing mix #
seasoned salt, I used Penzeys smoked seasoned salt

In a 9 x 13 inch greased baking dish, spread apple pie filling. Sprinkle both sides of the pork chops liberally with seasoned salt and sear both sides for about 3 minutes in hot skillet with about 2 T. olive oil. Place pork chops over apples. Prepare stuffing according to package directions and place over top of the chops. Cover and bake in 400° oven for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake another 15 minutes. Serves 8.
* I used a 4 pound boneless pork loin roast, sliced in 1/2 inch thick chops.
# I used Trader Joe’s Corn Bread Stuffing Mix.

    What a great looking recipe – and it is so funny to see all the men (although not uncommon eh?) lazing around on the couch. LOL. Where were the women – cleaning?

    Thanks for the mention of my recipes! 🙂

    You have a lot of men in your life! I think your pork chop recipe sounds wonderful. I made a peach and pork chop combo last month and that sweet/savory really worked. Adding the stuffing would make it gooood.

    To Honey B and Karen!- Ha we women were in the kitchen guarding the Italina pastries with our lives! We were also drinking coffee, cracking nuts, eating oranges, and laughing our faces off talking about stuff that ladies talk about when the men aren’t around, like my auntie’s sex life. HAAAA!
