Pork Chops & Stuffing (aka: A VERY Easy Weeknight Meal)

6.04.2013

**P.S. Don't forget to enter my race giveaway! Go here for details.**

This is a really simple, healthy, delicious dinner that you can make any time. The recipe was given to me by my mother, and it's become a staple in our house. Plus, it's pretty cheap!

Serves: 2-4 (when Jordan and I make this, we always have leftovers)

Ingredients
-4 butterfly boneless pork chops
-1 box of Stovetop stuffing mix (any flavor; I usually just buy 2 or 3 boxes at the store so we can keep some on hand at all times.)
-1 can of cream of mushroom soup (note: we don't like mushrooms all that much, so we use cream of celery)
-milk (enough to fill your 10.5-oz soup can; +2 points for no extra dishes to wash!)
-salt & pepper

Directions


>Brown pork chops in a pan  on the stove, using no oil, 2-3 minutes per side (just enough to get a touch of brown). They won't be extremely appetizing at this point, but just push through.

>Make stuffing mix according to box directions. Set aside. You can use any flavor that suits your fancy. This will take 5-6 minutes to make.

>Mix soup, milk, salt & pepper in a medium bowl.

>Lay pork chops side by side in a 9x13 pan. Spoon a ball of stuffing onto the top of each chop. 

>Pour the soup mixture over the top and all around the sides. 


>Bake for 1 hour (uncovered) @ 350 degrees. It will be done when the soup mixture begins to bubble and the stuffing gets crispy brown on top.

>Serve with a side of fresh green beans.

  4. This looks spectacular!

    There's a lady in my office who doesn't like mushrooms (I, on the other hand, love them!) Her reasoning is "I don't eat fungus."

  6. We eat a lot of pork chops so I think we might have to try this some night. I'm getting bored with our usual meals.

  7. I tend to not like pork chops due to how dry or tough mine always end up. I am guessing the soup helps keep it tender? If so I really need to try this recipe.

  20. I tried this and it was wonderful although the pork chops were somewhat tough. I am going to try this using pork tenderloin next time.

  21. This was good. I had to make some changes, like the stuffing was frozen crockpot stuffing from Thanksgiving. And I had 6 loin chops so I used 2 cans of cream of chicken soup, 1 can of milk and about 1 cup of chicken broth. It probably would have been fine with 1 can of the soup, but my stuffing was so dry (at Thanksgiving)I worried that it wouldn't get moist enough. I have been looking for recipes to use that stuffing up, and this is a keeper. Thank you.
