Sunday Chops and Stuffing

My family likes to make these chops for Sunday dinner. The recipe lets us spend more time having fun together and less time cooking. —Georgiann Franklin, Canfield, Ohio

    Great taste! I had to make a couple of changes due to not having the listed ingredients. I minced 1/2 a fresh onion then sautéed it and the celery until soft in the butter, then continued on as recipe stated. I only had honeycrisp apples so that is what I used. I seasoned the meat before I browned them as well. As it was, this was a good dish. Next time I make it I will add some savory seasoning to the stuffing, I used Pepperidge Farm stuffing in a bag.

    I seasoned the Pork chops before browning. I also used a boxed stuffing. My husband loved it. Will make again.

    this was really good! I did use store bought "stove top" pork stuffing mix and I also added some chopped pecans to the stuffing. I will be making this regularly and husband agrees. Loved it

    The pork chops came out too dry. I think I will try again, but next time only baking 20 minutes instead of 30 minutes. I liked the taste of the stuffing with the apples.I also used a stove top stuffing mix and made according to directions and placed around the pork chops. I dotted the top with butter. Maybe my chops weighed less than 7 oz. - I didn't weigh them before baking.

    I saut? the onions and celery in a large skillet, added the water and brought to a boil and poured over the stuffing mix that I had added poultry seasoning to. I put that in a oiled pan and followed the recipe as written. I did not expect to like this, thought it would be too sweet. it was very good and my husband loved it. Will definitely make again.

    I'm about the only one in the house who love pork chops. I made this anyway, everyone finished it. I didn't use the baking dish instead, after removing brown chops I sweated the onion and celery in the same pan. The assembled the stuffing in the pan also. then place it all in the oven. I'm always trying to eliminate extra clean up.

    Delicious! I marinated the chops in apple juice with 1T. apple cider vinegar before baking. They were moist and tender!
