How does a recipe that uses just three ingredients and turns out an entire pork chop dinner complete with stuffing and gravy sound? Too good to be true, right? But it’s not! Our Stuffing Stuffed Pork Chops are very, very real and is the kind of recipe where thanks to your trusty oven and a couple of shortcut ingredients, you get a delicious dinner with almost no effort on your part. Three ingredients, three simple steps, and you’ve got a scrumptious, hot-out-of-the-oven home-cooked meal for the family to sit down to!
There’s so much more that you can do with a box of stuffing mix than serve it with Thanksgiving dinner and this recipe proves it. Here, it acts as the filling for these stuffed pork chops (so, stuffing stuffed) and goes the extra mile by surrounding them in the baking dish and getting some nice crunchy bits of texture in there too. You can prepare it simply with just some chicken broth, or you can add in the celery and onion that the box might ask you to – totally up to you!
Once you prepare the stuffing, cut a slit in the pork chops and fill them, all that’s left to do is arrange them in a baking dish and top them off with what is maybe the ultimate kitchen shortcut ingredient – cream of mushroom soup. It mingles with the meat juices so well in the oven and turns out what tastes just like a flavorful mushroom gravy, a perfect companion for the pork.
It’ll take you maybe five minutes to get into the oven and the rest of the cooking time is yours to spend as you wish. And don’t we all need a little extra free time where we can get it? It’s just about as easy as dinner gets and it’s delicious too!
