Gloria's Stuffed Pork Chops

Savory Stuffed Pork Chops


My mom, Gloria,  is a terrific home-cook.  Her baked pork chops recipe is a favorite with our family, especially my sons.  I really haven't made it much over the years because it never seemed to turn out as tasty as Mom's.  One evening, not too long ago, Mom made this for me and I commented that I just couldn't make it as good as her.  "That's crazy," she said.  "It's so easy."   As she ran down the recipe I realized I consistently omitted two critical ingredients.  There should have been applesauce in the stuffing and the white wine in the sauce.  Mom had never told me about these secret ingredients. They make all the difference in the world!

Gloria's Baked Pork Chops with Stuffing

This recipe is easy to make and a perfect comfort food for autumn and winter dinners.  With another blizzard blowing through the Northeast today I'm making it for dinner tonight and thought I would share it with you.  I hope you'll give it a try.

Baked pork chop ingredients
Ingredients
  • 4 pork chops (you'll find this dish more flavorful if you use chops with bones)
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 1/2 c applesauce
  • 7 oz. herb seasoned stuffing mix
  • 2 c chicken broth
  • 1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Heat the butter and oil together over medium-high heat.  Season the pork chops with salt and pepper.  Brown both sides of the pork chops and then remove them from the pan.  To the same pan, add the onion and celery.  Saute vegetables 3-5 minutes until soft and translucent.  Add the seasoned stuffing mix, chicken broth, and applesauce.  Stir to combine and taste for seasoning.  Remove the pan from the heat.

Browned Chops and Sauteed Vegetables

Mix together the mushroom soup and white wine.  You can skip the wine, but it will make a difference in the end result.  Trust me!  Place the pork chops in a baking dish and pour the sauce around the chops.  Spoon the stuffing mix on top of the pork chops.

Ready for the Oven

Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 60 minutes, until the pork chops are cooked through and the sauce is bubbly.  Serve with your favorite vegetable and watch your family gobble it all up!
