Fusion Stuffed Pork Chops

Mediterranean Stuffed Pork Chops fused with our old traditional favorite bread stuffing made into a completely new meal! Thick one inch center cut pork chops stuffed with veggies and surrounded by bread stuffing with a dijon mustard sauce. Yum! Fusion Stuffed Pork Chops is a healthy low sugar complete meal!

I found inch thick center cut chops on sale and they looked so good…. I bought them! I had a hankering for stuffed chops with the typical bread stuffing. But I also found a yummy looking recipe (which I adapted) from Giada at the food network. A Mediterranean/American fusion meal was the result. This recipe requires no extras. It’s very tasty and filling as it is.  You can omit the stuffing if you want low carb and gluten-free. Not too much fuss and ready in under an hour. Just add your favorite drink!Fusion Stuffed Pork Chops is a healthy low sugar complete meal! http://homemadeFoodJunkie.com

As you may know, I’m a complete convert to delicious, flavorful sun-dried tomatoes. Add them to a meal for extra zip. Even better is the sweet concentrated tomato flavor of home dried tomatoes, marinated in fresh herbs, dried peppers and olive oil. Add them into this recipe with the filling I made. Yummy! The bread stuffing is just regular old stuffing in a bag. (I had some left from Thanksgiving I needed to use). But what I did to it never happened in any bird I have ever stuffed!Fusion Stuffed Pork Chops is a healthy low sugar complete meal! http://homemadeFoodJunkie.com

I used our garden Kale, lemon thyme and garlic for the veggies. I had feta cheese in the fridge. It was really tasty in this stuffing. Those are our home-grown dried, marinated tomatoes.  So yummy!!

Fusion Stuffed Pork Chops:

Let’s Make it:

Making the filling. Saute the veggies in your skillet

You can use other veggies if your prefer or have them on hand. I love kale because it holds up well to the heat of cooking.

Fusion Stuffed Pork Chops mustard sauce. Make the sauce while the veggies saute. Quick and easy! Just let it perk on the back burner on low once it’s done. It can reduce until the meal is ready to serve.

Fusion Stuffed Pork Chops

Start with One inch thick center cut Pork Chops. Slit them open and form a pocket to stuff. Once the veggies are done. Remove them to another bowl to finish the stuffing. Put the slit pork chops into the skillet and cook  done on the outside and almost done on the inside.

Create the breaded stuffing by pouring half the sauce into it while the chops are cooking. Set aside the bread stuffing until you need it in the skillet.  Complete the veggie filling. Do NOT combine the two stuffings.

Stuff the pork chops with the veggies and finish cooking in the skillet with the bread stuffing all around them. Cook covered until the pork chops are completely cooked. About another ten minutes. Serve with the mustard sauce on the side for added zing!
