Ingredients

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

Steps

  • 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.

  • 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.
