Stuffed Pork Chops
Pork could very well be my favorite beasty for dinner. There are so many different ways you can prepare it and it is quite tasty (and of course this is where bacon comes from). If you have some thick cut chops you can make a stuffing that will take them to a new level of yummy you might not have thought about.
1 cup bulgur wheat (uncooked)
1/2 cup dried cherries
Heat water to boiling like you would for pasta. Add bulgur and boil for roughly 10 minutes then cover and reduce heat and allow to steep till softened.
Place cherries in a bowl and cover with apple cider. Allow to sit for 24 hours. Drain reserving juice for sauce.
Peel and then cut supremes from oranges.
combine ingredients salt to taste.
using reserved juice, 1 cup hard cider and enough extra apple cider to equal about 2 cups, heat over medium heat till reduced to roughly a 1/2 cup.
Should be roughly 1-1.5 inch thick
Cook at 350 for roughly 1/2 hour to 40 minutes (center of stuffing should read 160 when done)
This is great served with a garden salad but you can do veggies that make you happy as well. In the end this is a fairly healthy set up (but don’t tell anyone cause its tasty).
Time for a pint…
