Crispy Unstuffed, Stuffed Porkchops #SundaySupper

Our family loves this time of year.  For a football family like us,  this is the time of year that we thrive on.  It’s playoff time!

The boys and Ron were glued to the TV all day Sunday.  Now, you all know how I feel about  Sunday Supper.  Just because it’s football season doesn’t mean that Sunday Supper goes out the window.

I could tell that the last thing my boys wanted to do was move away from the television.  I was about to tell them to shut it down and come to the table when I stopped…looked at the four of them…and realized what a beautiful sight!  I would be crazy to disrupt their Football Euphoria!

I think Julia Child says it best when she said  “Everything in moderation…including moderation.”  That woman was just brilliant!

So this Sunday we enjoyed Unstuffed, Stuffed Pork Chops Around the Family Table in the family room.  Clearly this was not planned or I would have made something that was a little easier balance eating on the sofa!

We broke two huge rules in our home this week: 1. Sunday Supper is always Around the Family Table 2. The television is never on during our meals. It felt good to be a Rule Breaker….Just don’t tell my kids!

Here’s the thing, we love Stuffed Pork Chops but we love crispy stuffing.  This is the perfect solution.  Our family won’t eat them any other way.  Besides, no matter how thin the Pork Chops, two of them is  just too much… Unless, of course, you eat as much as my growing boys!

It is so true, the family table can be anywhere.  The only ingredient required for the perfect #SundaySupper is Love! I loved our Sunday Supper.  Football and all!

 

This is one of those times that cooking the pork well is better. You will get a caramelization around the Pork and the meat will be so tender from cooking in the gravy.  Combine that with the Crispy Stuffing and these Unstuffed, Stuffed Crispy Pork Chops are to die for!

My sides were simple:  Slow Roasted Carrots and a Simple Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette.

It’s funny my kids love them because they are unstuffed and crispy! When I tried making traditional stuffed pork chops, they said… but the stuffing is mushy!

My in-laws had six children. When I marred into the family my MIL taught me to make these and that was how she always made them. Only difference was she would brown the chops before putting them in the bakin pan and she didn’t do the gravy. Very delicious none the less and continues to be a family favorite.
