Take a pork loin and cut it into chops that are a hearty one inch thick or pick-up a pack of really thick chops.  We found our chops at Sams Club in the meat case, but other stores will cut them for you if you ask at the meat counter.  Take the thick pork chop and cut it nearly in half.  Season the outside of the chops with salt and pepper.  Open the pocket and fill with prepared stuffing.

The secret to this recipe is not to over cook the pork.  We used an instant read meat thermometer to look for an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit in the thickest part of the chop.  These chops that were a good inch thick only took 30 minutes to be cooked in a 350 degree F oven.

Know that fancy kitchen tools aren’t required.  We use a $5 instant read thermometer and we get great results.
