Reviews for Corn-Stuffed Pork Chops
"I thought it was okay but a little dry and bland. My mom, however thought it was one of the best things I had ever made...I did add some extra butter to the stuffing."
"Can't wait to try it soundd wonderful"
"Delicious! I have a secret to keeping the stuffing inside. Instead of cutting the pocket on the outer edge, slice about halfway through the chop along the length of the bone. Then cut a pocket from the inside. I found this in a recipe 30 years ago, and my stuffing always stays put!"
"This dish has outstanding flavor! I had a package of 5 butterflied chops. I used a heaping 1/4 cup each of onion and green pepper in 2 tbs butter with 2 cups of stuffing mix, 1 cup of corn and generous 2&1/2 tbs of pimiento. I also added about 1/4 cup water to the stuffing mixture. I browned chops in butter and seasoned with garlic powder and a pinch of salt. After stuffing the chops, I put the remaining stuffing mixture in the baking dish around the chops to make a casserole. Covered dish the first 20 minutes of baking then removed foil and sprinkled another 1/4 cup of water over the stuffing. Will definitely make this again and maybe even try chicken breasts! What an awesome recipe!"
"All I can say is this was a hit with my family. My husband is a picky eater and he went bragging to his friends about this dish. I changed a couple things around, and it was good. Defaenlly be making this again."
"I used bread stuffing instead (lower sodium stove top chicken stuffing mix) and added some water. I marinated boneless chops in oil, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce for a couple hours. I added two chili peppers to the onion pepper mix. I loved these chops!"
"Recipe was very good! I added some garlic and garlic salt and it was really good! I had a little left over of the stuffing ingredients and poored them over the pork chops. It was delish!"
