Prep Time: 20 minutes

Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/4 cup each diced red pepper, celery and onion
  • 2 tablespoons dried cranberries
  • 1 cup prepared stuffing mix
  • 4 bone in pork chops
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh Sage leaves for garnish

Directions

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the red pepper, celery, onion, cranberries and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until the vegetables begin to soften about 5-7 minutes.
  2. Remove from the heat and stir the vegetable mixture into the reserved stuffing; set aside to cool.
  3. Meanwhile, make a 3” slit along the boneless sides of each pork chop creating a pocket. Divide the stuffing mixture between the 4 pork chops, gently filling each pocket with the mixture.
  4. In the same non-stick skillet, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the pork chops with salt and pepper and cook the chops for about 5-7 minutes per side, or until the chops are nicely browned and firm to the touch.
  5. Remove the chops and garnish with fresh sage leaves.
