Clean Eat Recipe :: Pear and Sage Stuffed Pork Chops

Share
I've been a little behind in my magazine reading... bad for me, but good for you! I finally got around to making the Pear and Sage (I forgot the sage and they were oh so fabulous - whoops!) Stuffed Pork Chops from the December 2011 issue of Oxygen Magazine. I think that these are the best tasting pork chops that I have EVER had! (Yes, I really said that - EVER!)

Pear and Sage Stuffed Pork Chops
"Feast and Stay Fit", Oxygen Magazine, December 2011, pg 96


Ingredients:
4 thick, boneless pork chops
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 c yellow onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, minced
1 slice whole wheat bread, cubed
1 pear, cored and diced
1 tsp dried sage
1 tsp fresh rosemary, finely minced
Cooking spray 

Directions:
1. Trim away fat and cut a pocket into each chop.
2. Combine flour, salt and pepper on a plate and dredge chops in flour mixture.
3. Sear chops to brown in a skillet sprayed with cooking oil, about 5 minutes on each side. Add some water to pan to deglaze and pull up any brown bits. Remove chops from the pan and set aside.
4. Add oil to pan and saute onion and celery. Add bread cubes, pear, sage and rosemary. Moisten with 2 tablespoons of water, or more if needed.


5. Stuff chops with cooked mixture. Place a toothpick in each cop to hold together.
6. Place in a baking dish coated with cooking spray. Pour any residual liquid over chops, cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes, until center is no longer pink and internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F. Serve.

You cannot go wrong with this recipe! The sweet combination from the pears mixed with the onion and celery is absolutely amazing!

    1. Heather, it really depends on the size of your pork chops. What size in ounces did you use? That will give me a better starting point to determine mets for you...

    2. Heather, It looks to be about 315 calories for a 6-7oz serving.
