These tasty skillet pork chops are stuffed with a combination of bacon, apples, and bread crumbs.

Use thick pork chops to make this dish, and serve with hot cooked rice and a salad. I used bone-in pork chops to make these stuffed chops.

What You'll Need

  • 6 pork chops, at least 1-inch thick
  • 3 strips bacon, diced
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons shredded carrots, optional
  • 3 apples, peeled, cored, and diced
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs or cracker crumbs
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

How to Make It

  1. Cut a pocket into the side of each of the chops for stuffing.
  2. In a large skillet or sauté pan over medium heat, fry the diced bacon until crisp. Add the chopped celery, onion, and shredded carrot, if using; cook until tender. Add diced apples, sprinkle with brown sugar, then cover and cook slowly until tender and glazed.
  3. Add bread crumbs to the apple mixture; stir in the parsley and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Stuff mixture into the pockets in chops.
  1. Wipe out the pan and place over medium-high heat with 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
  2. Season the chops with salt and pepper and sear on both sides in the hot oil. Reduce heat to low and add a few tablespoons of water.
  3. Cover and let cook slowly until the pork chops are tender, about 45 to 60 minutes.
