Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. For stuffing, melt the 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat in an extra-large skillet. Cook onion, garlic, and mushrooms in hot butter for 5 to 7 minutes or until onion is tender and most of the liquid is evaporated. Add spinach, thyme, the 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the 1/8 teaspoon pepper to skillet; cook for 2 minutes or just until spinach is wilted. Stir in cherries and Parmesan cheese.
  2. Trim fat from chops. Make a pocket in each chop by cutting horizontally from the fat side almost to the bone on the opposite side. Divide stuffing among pockets in chops. If necessary, secure the openings with wooden toothpicks. Sprinkle chops with additional salt and pepper.
  3. Melt the 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat in the same skillet. Cook chops in hot butter for 4 minutes or until browned, turning once.
  4. Place chops in a single layer in a baking dish just large enough to hold chops. Bake, uncovered, for 30 to 40 minutes or until juices run clear and chops register 145 degrees F on a meat thermometer.
  5. [Cleaning tip: Once the stove top is cool, wipe up any oil splatters or spills with Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes*.]

This was great! I fed it to 2 family members and my husband. It was a loved dish! I sprinkled some prok chop seasoning on the outside along with some salt and pepper when I seared it. It was a hit! I also mixed dried cherries AND dried apples. Good recipe!

Very good recipe! I'm usually not a fan of pork chops, but I loved this. The stuffing was the best part-so yummy. I used dried cranberries 'cause that's what I had, and I put a little less than 1/2 cup 'cause I didn't want it too sweet. Also, I added a little bit more parmesan cheese :) ... The only thing I would change next time, is I would add some pork chop seasoning. I only put salt/pepper, so the pork just lacked a little something. But yeah, I' ll definitely make this recipe again- my husband loved it too!

These were good tasting, but I wouldn't say amazing. Even though I did add garlic salt and pepper to the chops before browning, If I made them again I would certainly give the chops some more seasoning. They did come out tender and juicy and the stuffing was wonderful. The chops just needed something more. I didn't have the dried cherries so I dried some apples in my dehydrator to use here.

Made this last night without the fruit. It was great. I was looking for something to do with pork chops while cutting back on bread products. This was perfect!

I LOVE this dish! I don't very often make a recipe a second time but I've made this one 3 time so far.

Loved this! I didn't have any dried cherries, so I omitted them, and I used a freshly-grated Romano/Parm combination. Very, very yummy!

DELICIOUS!! The only "con" to this and it was my own fault, I didn't go to the butcher for a thicker cut pork chop, just purchased the "ready to go" ones prepackaged in the meat dept. A thinner chop makes it a little difficult to slice open and really stuff, but it all worked out in the end for me. I only cooked 3 chops, but followed the recipe as instructed, so once I placed the chops into the pan to bake, I topped them with the leftover stuffing. I also forgot to add the cherries into the stuffing (dang it), will have to remember to put those in next time - there will be a next time! Meat comes out very tender, moist and flavorful. Highly recommend this recipe!

We really enjoyed our pork chops. The chops were moist and juicy, and the spinach-and-mushroom stuffing was tasty. Plan to repeat this for company.
