Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

  • 2 bone-in ribeye pork chops, 1¼-inches thick
  • 2 Tbsp. onions, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, divided
  • ½ cup bread crumbs, soft
  • 1/3 cup apples, diced
  • 2 Tbsp. orange juice, divided
  • 1/8 tsp. dried sage
  • 1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp. corn starch
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup apple juice
  • 2 Tbsp. raisins
  • 2 tsp. orange zest, grated

Heat oven to 425°F. Cut an opening in each chop from the rib side, widening the pocket without cutting through to the other side of the chop; set aside.

For stuffing, in a medium saucepan cook onion in 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat until tender, stirring, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in breadcrumbs, apple, 1 tablespoon orange juice, sage and pepper. Fill pocket of each chop with an equal amount of stuffing, place in a shallow baking dish, brush with remaining tablespoon orange juice. Roast for 20-30 minutes or until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145 degrees F, allow to rest 5 minutes.

Meanwhile for sauce, in a small saucepan melt remaining tablespoon butter, stir in cornstarch and cinnamon; whisk in apple juice. Add raisins and orange zest. Cook, stirring, over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Serve over chops.
