Pork Chops
4
pork rib or loin chops, 1 inch thick (about 2 1/2 lb)
Stuffing
2
slices cinnamon raisin bread, toasted, cut into cubes (about 1 cup)
1/2
cup chopped apple (1/2 medium)
1/2
cup chopped pecans
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon grated orange peel
1/8
teaspoon ground cinnamon
Dash pepper
3
tablespoons orange juice
Glaze
2
tablespoons sugar
1
tablespoon cornstarch
1
cup apple juice
2
tablespoons butter or margarine
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. With sharp knife, make pocket in each pork chop by cutting into side of chop toward bone.
  2. In medium bowl, mix stuffing ingredients. Stuff each pocket with 1/4 of stuffing mixture; place chops in ungreased 13x9-inch pan. Bake uncovered 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, mix sugar and cornstarch; stir in apple juice. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until mixture boils and thickens. Remove from heat; stir in butter.
  4. Pour glaze evenly over chops; bake uncovered 30 to 35 minutes longer or until pork is no longer pink in center.

Tip
Pork chops need to be at least 1 inch thick to cut a pocket in them for stuffing. If the chops are thicker, they may need to bake a bit longer.
