Oven Baked Pork Chops March 10, 2009

This recipe is all about the stuffing mix.  If you have a favorite stuffing then you need to use it.  We used a herb seasoned stuffing mix and it was phenomenal!  But once again with most pork dishes the pork is a bit bland.  Ya, not something you are supposed to saying when promoting a recipe but this is all about learning and changing the recipes as you see fit.  We do have a favorite stuffed pork recipe that is by far 4 plus stars but I haven’t shared it with you yet, I will eventually. I have included what I would do differently with this recipe to help make the pork taste better.


Rating out of three stars: Hubby- 2 stars Me- 2 stars (has potential see alternate steps)

Serves 2 Ready in 30 minutes

  • 2 pork chops
  • 2 tablespoons of butter, melted
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons of milk
  • ¼ teaspoon of pepper
  • 1 cup of herb seasoned dry stuffing mix


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Mix the egg, milk, and pepper together.  Crush the stuffing mix slightly so no huge pieces remain.
  3. Dip the each pork chop in the egg mixture then coat with the stuffing.
  4. In an 8 x 8 inch pan, place butter then pork chops.
  5. Cook for 20 minutes turning half way and until no pink remains.

Second option for cooking (which I will try next time we eat this):

  1. After dipping and coating of the pork chop I would place the chop in a large skillet with a can of beef broth and ¼ cup of red wine.
  2. Simmer until the chop is cooked through about 10 minutes, flipping half way.
  3. This will make the stuffing soggy but it still tastes good.

Sides: Roasted Garlic Couscous

Our comments:

Hubby- Needs a sauce (it would have a sauce if we used the alternative recipe).

Me- Awesome use of the stuffing.
