Porker.

If you're like me, there is only one way to make pork chops. Fried up on the stove with LOTS of salt and pepper. Yum. My mouth waters just thinking about all of that salt. I tend to over salt my chops and Husby isn't quite the fan like I am. I usually undersalt his and oversalt mine.

But.

I decided to venture out and try a NEW pork chop recipe the other night. It was quite a success!

Introducing Brown Sugar Glazed Porkchops....



They lay upon a bed of stuffing and are drizzled (okay, drenched) with lots of butter and brown sugar. Delightful.

The sugary butter seeps into the stuffing and creates quite a flavor explosion!



I served with very simple sides: shells and cheese, green beans and of course, crescent rolls. It was a surprisingly easy meal - prepared in less than 20 minutes and then it baked for about 45!

Want the recipe?

Sure you do!

Brown Sugar Glazed Porkchops

~1/2 cup chopped celery
~1/2 cup chopped onion
~1/2 tablespoon butter
~Half a bag of cubed stuffing
~1/2 tablespoon Greek dressing (I omitted this because I didn't have it!)
~1 (14 ounce) can chicken broth
~6 pork chops (or a tenderloin)
~1 cup packed brown sugar
~1/2 cup butter, melted

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

2. In a small skillet melt 1/2 tablespoon butter or margarine. Add onion and celery and saute until translucent. Add saute mixture to a large bowl with stuffing, Greek dressing and broth. Mix to coat bread evenly, not too soggy.

3. Spread bread mixture/stuffing in the bottom of a lightly greased 9×13 inch baking dish. Top with pork chops; if desired, sprinkle chops with additional Greek dressing. In a medium bowl combine the brown sugar and melted butter or margarine and mix together. Brush mixture over the tops of the pork chops and drizzle over chops and stuffing, allowing some to seep into the stuffing.

4. Bake in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes or until internal temperature of pork has reached 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Baking time will vary slightly depending on thickness of chops. If desired, baste with additional butter/sugar mixture while baking. (I baked mine for 45 because I can't handle soft meat...everything in my house is extra well done!)

Enjoy!

  2. I always have trouble finding good pork chop recipes. I feel like a lot of them don't have much flavor and are dry and that is the worst. Thanks for sharing this recipe - they look great!

  4. Whit, I made this last night since you had already given me the recipe. It was great. Dennis said it is a keeper. The stuffing tastes so yummy with the sweetness added. I used the thin boneless chops and it only took about 30 minutes. The last 2 minutes I turned it to broil so they would "glaze" a little more. Mmmmm Mmmmmm Good.

  5. Looks DELISH, however, I have started weight watchers and on my menu last night were GRILLED pork chops that were seasoned to perfection. Served with some sweet, delicious, roasted sweet potatoes! Glad we both had "Pork" on the brain.
    {But, I do enjoy them FRIED!!}

  8. My hubby and I were just talking about how we hate all things pork. I bet, if I made this though, he would be more consumed with the layers of butter and brown sugar to even notice. Sounds like a keeper. Thanks girl!

  25. I'm not a big pork chop fan, but on our first mission trip to Honduras we had pork chops seasoned with greek seasoning (brought by a team member) and cooked over an open fire. They were the absolute best. My tummy's growling now!

  26. Hi Whitney,
    I just wanted to let you know I really enjoy reading your blog. I actually was in the pre-med program at JBU with your husband, though he was ahead of me. I loved your scripture memorizing rap, so fun!
    Have a great weekend!
