I must be channeling Paula Deen to be putting so much pork in one place, but I can't help myself! This is so good. And I promise you, it's much healthier than anything Paula Deen the Ham Queen ever made. Ham butter? Ew.
So, I basically took my Nanny's stuffed pork chops recipe and added a few things.
You will need:
- 2 thick cut pork chops
- 2 celery stalks
- 1 onion
- 1 TBSP butter
- garlic powder
- lemon (optional)
- 1 box herb stuffing
- 2 strips thick cut bacon
Follow the directions on the stuffing box then add vegetables and bacon chunks, mix it up, pop the cover on and remove from heat.
While the stuffing is sitting, season the pork chops on each side with salt and pepper. Get a big, sharp knife and make an incision in the middle on the long side where there's no fat (it's easier). Make it sort of a curved cut so that the stuffing has a pocket to rest in. And yes this looks hilarious, but please, soldier on.
P.S. Always make sure to cook all pork products thoroughly otherwise, YOU WILL DIE.
