Instructions

  • *2 thinly sliced bone-in rib chops may be substituted for 1 thick loin chop. Stuffing is then sandwiched between the 2 chops
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet or rectangular baker with foil for easy clean up.
  • Mix all stuffing ingredients in a medium bowl; set aside.
  • Cut a deep pocket in each chop
  • Divide stuffing into 4 equal portions; stuff each chop and place on prepared pan.

  • Roast at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes. Brush each chop with currant jelly.
