Apple Pie Pork Chops

Submitted by: MARIADETWILER

Introduction

I shamelessly stole this recipe from Leanne at shecooks dot com. I made it her way the first time for my daughter and son in law, and they both LOVED it. So did I, but at approximately 1400 calories per serving, I can't have it if I'm ever going to lose this weight! I reduced the amount of pork and cut it up to make it more like a casserole. A few minor adjustments and now it 580 calories per serving - and still as WONDERFUL tasting as the original. And while it's still not in the calorie range to eat every day, it is a fabulous meal if you want something decadent. I shamelessly stole this recipe from Leanne at shecooks dot com.

Ingredients

    4 tsp butter
    2 Tbsp chopped onion
    2 Tbsp chopped celery
    1/3 cup chicken broth
    1/4 cup apple juice
    2 Tbsp craisins
    1-1/3 cups dried stuffing
    7.2 ounces boneless pork loin, cut into bite sized pieces
    salt and pepper for seasoning pork
    1 tsp olive oil
    2/3 cup canned apple pie filling
    2 Tbsp brown sugar

Directions

To make the stuffing, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and celery and saute three to four minutes or until onion is translucent. Add broth and apple juice and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and stir in the cranberries and stuffing. Let sit for 5 minutes and then fluff.

When ready to prepare dinner, spray a small casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray then spread pie filling on the bottom and sprinkle with brown sugar. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Salt and pepper both sides of pork chops. Place a heavy skillet over medium high heat and coat bottom with olive oil. Sear pork on all sides and remove from skillet. Place browned pork on top of pie filling in an even layer. Place scoopfuls of stuffing over top.

Spray the dull side of foil with non-stick cooking spray and then cover the pork and stuffing with the prepared foil. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove foil and continue to cook for 15 minutes or until stuffing is browned.
