I’m not going to name any names, but I’m in a “Stuff it!” kind of mood! 🙂 It happens to the best of us.

Since I really can’t go around saying “Stuff it” to perfect strangers…lol…I decided to channel that feeling into a package of pork chops! (Poor unsuspecting things.) 

One minute they were laying there, minding their own business. The next, I was slicing them open and shoving stuffing inside them! Poor things didn’t stand a chance. However, I happen to think their make-over was superb! I think you will too.

I love to buy the BIG thick pork chops from Costco. (Ya know…the one’s that look like Goliath was the butcher cutting ’em up for his family of giants.) I fillet them in half so that one pork chop becomes two. (It’s like I’m a magician!) Four become eight. Which is exactly the number you need for this recipe.

You’ll want a really good boneless pork chop about 3/4 an inch thick. Using a really sharp knife cut a “pocket” right down the center of your pork chop from one end to the other.

Be careful not to completely cut through the pork chop. Remember you are creating a “pocket” for your stuffing.

Now for the fun part of this recipe. The stuffing! Shhhhh….it’s from a box! Shocking I know!

That’s right you are going to use one box of Stove Top Stuffing, or your favorite brand of instant boxed stuffing mix. Follow the box directions for microwave instructions. It’s basically water and butter.  It will take about 4 minutes!

Once it comes out of the microwave, use a fork to “fluff” it up!

With your pork chops all ready to go… let’s stuff them with your amazing gourmet cooked stuffing. (Why make something simple, hard? That’s my motto! Don’t ya agree?)

Grab a heaping tablespoon of stuffing and place it in the center of the slit you cut in your pork chop. You may have to use your hands to really stuff it down inside the pork chop pocket. (Come on…dig in! Get’er done!)

Press your pork chop edges together and place them on a cookie sheet until you have all your pork chops stuffed.

Remember when stuffing… this poor little pork chop did nothing to you… so be nice and gentle when working your magic!

*Please note…You will have left over stuffing. No worries you can just tuck it in and around your pork chops when you bake them later.

To prepare the coating mixture for the pork chops you need the other box of stuffing mix.

Place the stuffing mix into a large heavy-duty zip lock bag. With a rolling-pin crush the bread crumbs until they are fine crumbles. (You can also do them in your food processor if you have one. Whichever is easiest for you. I like to use the bag because less dishes!)

Place the crumbs into a shallow dish, like a pie plate.

Heat a large skillet with 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil over medium high heat.

In another shallow dish beat two eggs to create an egg wash. Carefully grab a stuffed pork chop and dip it into the egg wash being sure to coat both sides.

Remove the pork chop from the egg wash.

Gently lay the pork chop into the crushed stuffing mix. Using a fork, or spoon, cover the top of the pork chop with the stuffing crumbs, so that both sides are coated. Press down with your hand to be sure they adhere to the pork chop.

Place the stuffed breaded pork chop into your preheated skillet. Cook until golden brown. About 3-4 minutes per side.

Using large tongs, or a spatula, carefully turn the pork chops to brown the other side. Be careful not to knock off all that yummy golden brown coating.

*Do not worry about the pork chops being cooked through. You are going to place them in the oven to finish cooking.

Place your crispy pork chops onto a large baking sheet. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees. Place browned pork chops into the oven for  20 minutes or until juices run clear.

TIP: Be very careful not to over cook your pork chops! Key to a juicy pork chop is not over cooking them. They take less time to cook than you think.

While your pork chops are in the oven you can make the simple gravy to pour over the top of your stuffed pork chops.

To make the gravy mix one can cream of chicken soup, 1/2 cup sour cream, and one cup of milk in a medium sauce pan.

Simmer over low heat until heated through. If you would like a thinner gravy, add more milk till you have the consistency you desire.

Place your fully baked pork chops onto a serving platter and pour creamy gravy over each pork chop. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley.

There you go! Beautiful, easy, stuffed pork chops. They are loaded with flavor from all the seasonings in the stuffing mix.

They wear a crispy golden coating on the outside! Are tender and juicy on the inside, and loaded with all that luscious stuffing.

The creamy gravy just brings everything together. This recipe takes ordinary plain pork chops to new heights! One the residents at your Nest, I’m certain, will absolutely L.O.V.E.!

I served this for our weekly family Sunday dinner and paired it up with a few of our favorite side dishes!

OMG these turned out AMAZING! I freaked out when I saw how massive these bone-in pork chops were that my husband brought home. I just knew that even after brining for 24 hours they’d be tough and dry. So I searched for a recipe for stuffing them and am SO glad I chose yours! I followed your recipe exactly, even though there were only 3 chops they were gigantic. So I cooked them as you said, browning in pan, then in oven. Mine took 30 mins in my convection oven. We all loved them! So tasty, juicy and tender! And they even looked good, with that creamy sauce and fresh chopped parsley. Thank you :)
