It’s time…  Time I declare my love of Costco.  I don’t care who knows it because I’m in love! I’ve been a Costco shopper for a while now but the moment I purchased these beautiful pork chops I knew our love would last.  I’ve never really been a huge pork chop lover, but I saw these beauties and knew they needed to come home with me.  Lets face it if you’re going to have pork chops you need apples too and so my friend my Apple Stuffed Pork Chops were born! They are delicious!

Ingredients:

4-6 Thick Cut Pork Chops (about 1 inch thick)

2 Gala Apples, peeled and diced

1 Redskin Potato, petite diced

1 Tablespoon Bacon Fat or Coconut Oil

2 Celery Stalks, sliced

1 Medium Onion, diced

1 Tablespoon Fresh Rosemary or 1 Teaspoon dried

1/2 Teaspoon Pepper

1 Teaspoon Salt

1/2 Cup Corn Starch

1 Teaspoon Coconut Oil

Toothpicks

Preheat the oven to 400*

In a large oven safe skillet add the bacon fat or coconut oil, onion, apple, celery, and red skin potato.  Cook over medium heat until the onion is translucent and the apple and potato just starts to soften.

While the stuffing is cooking it’s time to prepare the pork chops.  Using a sharp knife cut a little pocket into each of the pork chops.  My pork chops were about 1 inch thick, so cutting directly in the middle was perfect with about 1/2 inch on each side.  Then on a plate add the corn starch, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper; mix it together.

Take each of the pork chops and coat them with the corn starch mixture.  Tap the pork chop to remove the excess corn starch.  Now it’s time to get stuffing!  My pork chops held about 1/4 cup of the stuffing mixture; stuff the pork chop then use toothpicks to secure the outside edge to prevent the stuffing from falling out.

In the same skillet you just used to make the stuffing add the coconut oil.  Once the oil it hot add the pork chops and sear on each side for about 2 minutes until they are golden.  Once the second side is golden add foil over the top and bake at 400* for about 15 minutes.  After 15 minutes add 1/2 cup water and remove the foil; then return back to the oven for about 10 minutes until cooked through.  The water deglazes the pan and gives you a nice little sauce to spoon over the Apple Stuffed Pork Chops.
