4 bone in, 1 inch thick pork chops
1 cup onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup celery, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp dried rosemary, or 2 tbls fresh
1 cup apple, finely chopped
1 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup chicken broth
2 tbls maple syrup
2 tbls dijon
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, or 1 tsp fresh
1 1/4 tsp salt, divided
1 tsp pepper
1 tbls butter
2 tbls olive or canola oil, divided
Using a sharp. pairing knife cut a slit in each chop through to the bone to create a pouch for the stuffing. Set aside.
Heat a skillet over medium heat and add the oil and butter. Add the onion and celery to the skillet and cook until softened. Next add the garlic, rosemary, apples, breadcrumbs, chicken broth, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper as well. Stir everything together and then remove from the heat and set aside to cool. Once the stuffing has cooled, stuff it into each chop.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
MIx together the mustard, maple syrup, remaining 1/2 tsp rosemary, 3/4 tsp salt and 3/4 teaspoon pepper. Rub the mixture on the outsides of the stuffed chops.
Heat the skillet to medium high heat and add the remaining oil. Once the oil is hot add the pork chops, brown for 3-4 minutes, carefully flip and brown for another 3 minutes. Do this step in 2 batches if you do not have a large enough skillet. Transfer the chops to a large baking dish and bake for 15-20 minutes until the pork is fully cooked. Enjoy!
