Apple Smothered Pork Chops

This is another recipe that I found in one of my favorite cooking magazines, Simple and Delicious. I totally love the combination of apple and pork. They go so well together. This recipe brings those flavors that I love together in a quick stove top meal. I did think that it sounded a little stange to put cinnamon on top of the stuffing mix. But let me tell you that it works so well in this dish. I am also not a big fan of packaged stuffing mixes, but I love it in this recipe. The apples in this also make it a nice fall dinner.

Apple Smothered Pork Chops

1 package (6 ounces) chicken stuffing mix
4 boneless pork loin chops (6 ounces each)
1 tablespoon butter
4 medium apples, peeled and cut into wedges (I use granny smith)
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (I just spinkle enough to cover the dressing)

Prepare stuffing mix according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook pork chops in butter over medium heat for 2-3 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Stir in the apples, brown sugar, water and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 8-10 minutes or until apples are tender. Top with stuffing; sprinkle with cinnamon. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat for 10-12 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160°. Yield: 4 servings.

  • Made this last night and it was so delicious. The pork and apples were a yummy combo! What a great fall meal. Everyone really enjoyed it. Thanks for posting this recipe. If you have any more “fall dinners” I would LOVE it if you shared! 🙂

    Also, made your apple fritters and I got a request to make “a huge batch” of them! Thank you again!!

  • I thought for sure that my kids would turn their noses up at this. i did have a hard time getting them to try it but once they did, they loved it!

  • I’ve got an award for you over on my blog! 🙂

  • I also have the recipe that Michelle mentioned, but I love the fact that this one uses fresh apples. I rarely buy canned pie filling, but I do buy regular apples. This looks so delicious!

  • I do one very similar to this. Apple pie filling, browned pork chops next, and stuffing on top. I never thought I would like fruit and meat together, but pork really is perfect for it! I have been craving my apple pork dish lately, but I think I will have to use fresh apples this time!

  • Thanks for posting this recipe! I’ve got about 8 pork chops in my freezer waiting for me to figure out what to make with them and a tree full of apples that needs to be picked! I think I’ll try this out tomorrow! Thanks!
