Apple Dressing Pork Chops

Apple Dressing Pork ChopsI’ve let myself go as far as my low-sodium/anti-stroke/lowering-blood-pressure diet. I’ve been traveling a lot lately (well, for concerts–I know I keep bringing up having seen The Replacements, because I’m STILL just overwhelmed at how utterly great that show was, and most recently, I went back to the Twin Cities, so I could see Fleetwood Mac, which also was an amazing show), and in just about 10 days, I have ANOTHER trip coming up (no concert this time though!). So needless to say, with the stress of coming and going, plus keeping up the blog, AND my real FT job, eating well has kind of gone out the window. I have started doing yoga to help combat the stress, as well as tone my flab and help the BP, but I need to get my diet back on track. And since we got a bit of a cold snap over the past few days, I thought these Apple Dressing Pork Chops were a perfect healthy but tasty meal.

Apple Dressing Pork ChopsMoist pork chops, a tasty apple dressing (or stuffing, if you call it that), and some veg on the side. Perfect for an autumn dinner.

Apple Dressing Pork Chops(If you’re interested, for the green beans, I just sauteed them in about a tablespoon of olive oil, seasoned them with salt and pepper, added a splash of lemon juice and tossed in some lemon zest. Jay and the bambino loved them, as did I!)

  • 1 medium apple, peeled and finely chopped (I used a Jonathan)

  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 4 boneless loin pork chops

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients except the pork chops, and toss until the bread is moistened.
  3. Spread half the dressing mixture in the bottom of an 8 x 8-inch square baking dish. Place the pork chops on top of the dressing in a single layer. Top with the remaining dressing.
  4. Cover and bake for 30 minutes, then uncover and bake for 10 minutes more, or until the dressing is golden brown and the pork chops are slightly pink in the center.
