Apple and Herb Stuffed Pork Chops
4 Thick Strips of Bacon -Diced
2 Tablespoons Butter
2 Apples –Peeled and Diced
1 Yellow Onion –Peeled and Diced
1 Small Fennel Bulb –Cleaned and Diced
½ Tablespoon Grated Ginger
½ Tablespoon Chopped Garlic
½ Cup Panko or Non-toasted Plain Dried Bread Crumbs
½ Cup Chicken Stock or Broth
2 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
¼ Cup Sugar
½ Teaspoon Salt
1/8 Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
½ Tablespoon Fresh Chopped Thyme
½ Tablespoon Fresh Chopped Rosemary
½ Tablespoon Fresh Chopped Sage
6 Thick Cut Pork Loin Chops Bone-in about 1½ inches thick seasoned with Salt and Pepper
For the Stuffing:
Peel and dice the apples. Remove and discard the top and core of the fennel, then dice the fennel. Sauté the bacon in butter over medium heat until cooked but not crisp. Next, add the apples, onions, fennel, ginger and garlic. Cook over low heat until soft. Remove from heat and fold in the remaining ingredients. This stuffing is best if prepared a day in advance and refrigerated.
Turn your pork chops onto their end and cut a full pocket in the side all the way to the bone. Stuff each chop with ½ cup of stuffing. Cook at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes. Rotate pan and cook for another 10-15 minutes or until the internal temperature next to the bone measures 145-150 degrees F. This is great served with some nice herb crusted roasted potatoes and sautéed green beans.
