Reviews for Sunday Chops and Stuffing
"The pork chops came out too dry. I think I will try again, but next time only baking 20 minutes instead of 30 minutes. I liked the taste of the stuffing with the apples.I also used a stove top stuffing mix and made according to directions and placed around the pork chops. I dotted the top with butter. Maybe my chops weighed less than 7 oz. - I didn't weigh them before baking."
"I saut? the onions and celery in a large skillet, added the water and brought to a boil and poured over the stuffing mix that I had added poultry seasoning to. I put that in a oiled pan and followed the recipe as written. I did not expect to like this, thought it would be too sweet. it was very good and my husband loved it. Will definitely make again."
"Average flavor. Not making it again."
"I'm about the only one in the house who love pork chops. I made this anyway, everyone finished it. I didn't use the baking dish instead, after removing brown chops I sweated the onion and celery in the same pan. The assembled the stuffing in the pan also. then place it all in the oven. I'm always trying to eliminate extra clean up."
"Delicious! I marinated the chops in apple juice with 1T. apple cider vinegar before baking. They were moist and tender!"
"I made this for dinner last night and it was wonderful. I will definitely make this again."
"I made this last night and it was delicious!!!!! I doubled the recipe and didn't change any of the ingredients. Fabulous!!!!! Thank you!!!"
"We had this tonight & it was WONDERFUL! Because it was just the 2 of us, I halved it for 2."
"I have often done pork pieces or pork chops with stuffing, but the apple slices on top will be new the next time. It sounds great. You can buy pork stuffing, too. I like to add onions and walnuts as well as celery to the stuffing to give it some extra crunch."
"This is so yummy! Very flavorful, tender pork chops. I loved the roasted apples on top. I will definitely be making this again."
"Wonderful flavor! The butter really adds to the stuffing. It was very easy to prepare and I adjusted it for 2 very thick chops which I seasoned and steamed while I browned them. I asked my husband if this dish is a keeper and he held up his empty plate and smiled. Definitely a keeper!"
