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!
CRISPY UNSTUFFED, STUFFED PORK CHOPS
- 4 Pork Cutlets with bone
- 1 Box of your favorite stuffing
- 4 Tablespoons of Butter
- 1 1/2 Cups of Chicken Broth warm
- 2 Green Onions sliced fine
- 2 stalks of Celery chopped fine
- 1 package of powdered Pork Gravy
- 1 1/2 cups of Water
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees
- Melt butter and saute the Green Onions and Celery
- Add the Chicken Broth and bring to a boil
- Reduce heat and add the Stuffing Mix. Mix well
- Cook on low for 15 minutes and set aside
- Mix the Pork Gravy with the water
- Pork the Gravy mixture into the bottom of a rectangular glass baking dish
- Lay the Pork Chops in the baking dish
- Top each Chop with rounded mounds of the stuffing
- Cook for 45 to 50 minutes. Until top of stuffing is crispy, gravy is thick and Pork is well done
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!
