  1. Make a pocket in each pork chop with small knife by cutting horizontally from outside edge almost to bone.
  2. In a medium bowl combine apple, shallot, bread crumbs and peanut butter; mix well. Shape stuffing mixture into four equal patties.

This recipe turned out alright. The pork itself was tender and flavorful but I'm undecided as to how I feel about peanut butter and pork. It was definately interesting and worth a try if you like meat that is unique and on the sweeter side.


my husband loved it. I used chops that might of been cut a bit too thin though, was hard to stuff


Very easy to make, but taste wise it had a lot to be desired, Can't say I will be making this again
