Directions:

1

For the pork trim any fat from your chop then make a pocket by slicing the meat horizontally, but not all the way through. Stuff each chop with 1/4c. stuffing and place in an oven safe baking dish. Add the champagne (or other liquid) to the bottom of the pan to avoid sticking and to help baste the pork chops while cooking. Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Bake at 425F degrees for about 20-30 minutes or until desired temperature is reached (depends on the thickness or your pork chops).

2

For the stuffing add the pita to your food processor or chop in fine pieces and add them to a bowl. In a large frying pan, heat oil and add your fennel, apples and thyme. Saute until the fennel and apples start to turn translucent, then add to your pita crumbs. Add in the chicken broth and the cheese and mix well. Season with salt and pepper. Add any remaining stuffing to an oven safe dish and bake at 425F degrees for 15 minutes. Makes approx. 3 cups.

In recent years, pork chops have become so lean that they dry out easily ifyou overcook them even slightly. Fattier shoulder chops will stay moister than leaner - and more expensive - rib and loin chops, but they taste best when braised, which softens their tissues and releases their fat. Sautéing pork chops is straightforward, and as is true with all white meats, there is an exact temperature ..

We Americans have certainly put our own spin on foods from other places, but is there anything we can truly call our own? Absolutely. Barbecued pork.
