"A savory stuffing and gravy make these chops nice enough for a birthday dinner or other special occasion," assures Shirley Itz of Fredericksburg, Texas. "It's usually just my husband and I enjoy these moist chops, but I've been known to triple the recipe when our grown children and their families come by for dinner."
