Garnishes: steamed baby carrots, pearl onions, flat-leaf parsley
How to Make It
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add onion and next 3 ingredients, and sauté 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender and liquid evaporates. Remove from heat. Add stuffing mix and broth; stir until liquid is absorbed. Stir in sage, 2 tablespoons chopped parsley, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, and ground red pepper. Let stand 20 minutes.
Trim excess fat from each pork chop, and cut a slit in 1 side of each chop to form a pocket. Spoon stuffing mixture evenly into each pocket.
Combine remaining 4 tablespoons parsley, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Rub both sides of stuffed pork chops evenly with 2 tablespoons oil, and spread parsley mixture evenly over chops.
Cook chops in remaining 2 tablespoons hot oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, in batches, 2 minutes on each side or until browned. Place on a lightly greased rack in a broiler pan. Add 1 cup water to bottom of broiler pan.
Bake at 375° for 30 to 40 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Garnish, if desired.
*1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage may be substituted.

Mmmmmm, sooo yummy! I couldn't find fresh sage at our local base commissary so I used dried sage. Added some to the veggies, as well as extra salt and pepper. I only had 2 chops as it's just me and the hubs and two kids who don't eat much, so I put the extra stuffing in a small casserole dish, covered, and put it in with the chops. Hubby said it was really good, daughter really liked it (and I will def. make more stuffing for leftovers next time!), I thought it was pretty good too. I think if I add some sage flavored sausage I will have a winner for our next Thanksgiving dinner!
I made these chops for dinner tonight and it was very good! I did use fresh sage, I do not like the flavor of dried sage. and I did not cook the chops on a greased rack. After browning the chops, I placed on a foil lined baking sheet. I think the next time I will simply put the chops in the oven in the same pan I brown them in. I did not use the red pepper because we were out. Still delicious!
