Pork Chops Stuffed with Sun Dried Tomatoes and Spinach

Submitted by: AMYJMERRITT

Number of Servings: 3


    2 TBSP Olive Oil
    4 TSP Garlic
    1/4 cup Sun-Dried Tomatoes
    10 ounces Spinach (Canned or Frozen)
    1/2 TSP Salt
    1/2 TSP Fresh Ground Black Pepper
    1/3 cup reduced fat cream cheese
    3 center-cut pork chops
    1 1/2 cups chicken broth
    1/2 lemon, zested
    2 TBSP lemon juice
    2 TSP Dijon Mustard


Warm the 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium saute pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the
sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, salt, pepper, and thyme. Cook until combined, about 2 more minutes. Transfer the mixture to a medium bowl. Add the cream cheese. Stir to combine and set aside.

Use a sharp knife to cut a pocket into the thickest portion of the pork chop. Stuff each pocket with 1/4 of the spinach and sun-dried tomato mixture and close the pork around the stuffing. Season the outside of the pork with salt and pepper.

In a small bowl combine the chicken broth, lemon zest, lemon juice, and mustard.

Warm the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot add the pork. Cook until golden and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer the pork to a side dish and tent with
foil to keep warm. Add the chicken broth mixture to the skillet over medium-high heat. Scrape up the brown bits from the bottom of the pan as the chicken broth simmers. Reduce the broth by half to make a light sauce, about 8 minutes. Spoon
some sauce over the pork before serving.

  • This was a really great high protein meal that my husband and I really enjoyed. The sundried tomatoes made it a litlle "sweet" though. I also added a 1/4 cup of parmesean cheese to the spinach for flavor. Don't forget to season your pork chops too...I oly gve them a dash of s & p- it wasn't enough! - 9/7/08
