How to Make Stuffed Butterfly Chops


Pork is becoming more popular at the dinner table, as it is sometimes cheaper than chicken. Grilled pork chops can start to get boring after a bit, and plain baked chops are often dry, but this recipe produces a juicy, tender chop filled with your favorite stuffing. Complete the meal with your favorite vegetable.

Things You'll Need

  • 4 boneless loin chops, 2 inches thick
  • 4 cups of your favorite pork stuffing
  • Salt and pepper
  • Rinse the chops off and place them on a cutting board. Using a sharp knife, slice the chops horizontally, as you would slice a bun open. Stop cutting when you get about an inch from the opposite side. If you use a properly sharpened chef's knife, you should be able to make two or three smooth cuts, while pulling the top half up with your fingers. When you are done with the cut, the meat should lay open as pictured. Repeat for all four chops.

  • Sprinkle salt and pepper on the cut side of the chop. If you wish to add additional spices such as garlic or onion powder, add them now.

  • Set the chops aside and prepare your favorite stuffing.

  • Line a cookie sheet with foil, and arrange two of the chops on the cookie sheet. Top with a liberal amount of stuffing. Set the other two chops on top of the stuffing. You should have a pork chop sandwich with the stuffing inside.

  • Bake at 350 degrees F for about 1 hour. If you have thick chops, you may have to cook them for more than an hour. Check for doneness by cutting a slit in one of the bottom chops and making sure all the meat is a white color.
