  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a Dutch oven, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Cook onion in butter until the onions are very soft and begin to brown. Remove from heat. Stir in apple, celery, and dried cranberries. Season with salt.
  3. Lay each chop flat on cutting board, and with a sharp knife held parallel to the board, cut a pocket into the pork, leaving three sides intact. Stuff each chop with apple-cranberry mixture.
  4. Melt remaining butter in the Dutch oven over medium heat. Pan-fry chops in butter for two minutes on each side. Cover, and bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes.
  5. Transfer chops from pan to a plate, and cover with foil. Place the Dutch oven back on the stovetop over medium heat. In a small bowl or measuring cup, stir together apple juice, cornstarch, and brown sugar; pour into Dutch oven. Reduce liquid volume by half, stirring frequently. Season to taste with black pepper. Serve this apple glaze over pork chops.

I dusted the chops with sage, thyme, salt and pepper. I bought butterflied pork chops so I put the stuffing on the top. I fried in olive oil for only 45 sec. each side and baked for 30 min. T...

This was great! I added about a cup of fresh breadcrumbs and stuffed a pork tenderloin. Seared the tenderloin in a cast iron pan then trasferred to a 350 degree oven for an hour. My husband and...

I followed this recipe with the exception of browning the meat and then stuffing, and adding 1/4 cup of parmassion cheese to the stuffing. The sauce was great. I'll make it again!

This recipe was amazing! My boyfriend and I prepared it last night and it was the best meal we have ever made together. The apple and cranberry blended well to give the pork an excellent taste....

YUMMY!!! My Daughter and I loved this. I used pork tenderloin, which I cut into thick porkchops. Next time I will cut the brown sugar to 1 TBSP, it was a little to sweet. Will make again!!
