The Time Has Come: Stuffed Pork Loin Chops

Oh, do I have a good one for you today.

Have you ever had a stuffed pork chop?

Out-of-this-world DELICIOUS!!

I have made these with rice mix or stuffing mix. Either way, they are wonderful.

I used the rice mix that I picked up from Trader Joes in Arizona. This one is Garden Herbs and Vegetables, but you can use whatever rice mix you want.

I sometimes treat the family to thick-cut pork loin chops (only when they are on sale).

You can see that they are sliced really thick.

If you don't want to purchase the already sliced pork loin chops, you can just buy a pork loin and slice them yourself. I do that sometimes.

I make a slit in the side, careful not to cut through the bottom side.

I cook my rice according to package directions, and then stuff the rice mixture into the slit. I try and keep them standing up, but sometimes they want to be lazy and fall over.

I place a few pads of butter in the bottom of my dish.

Cover the dish with foil, and bake.

If you don't cover the dish while baking, the rice will turn crunchy. Me don't like crunchy rice....

A very simple meal, and very easy to make.

After my rice was cooked and the pan was emptied, I added my frozen carrots to the same pan without washing. It gave my carrots a little extra flavor.

Stuffed Pork Loin Chops

1 package flavored rice (flavor of your choice)
3 thick-cut pork loin chops (sliced on edge to make a pocket)
2 TBS butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cook rice according to package directions. Place rice mixture into pork chop slits. Place pads of butter in the bottom of baking dish, and place the stuffed pork chops on top of the butter. Cover dish with foil and bake for 40 - 45 minutes.

Good Luck~Happy Eating~Enjoy

  1. Those chops sounds wonderful. I love stuffed chops, but don't often buy them thick enough to make stuffing worth while. You have inspired me!
