How do I make Stuffed Pork Chops?
To start, you simply take the marinated pork chops out of the package. You cut a 3 inch slit with a knife and make a pocket for the creamy parmesan spinach and herb stuffing. Stuff the pork chops with the mixture and fasten sides with a toothpick if desired.
How long do you grill pork chops?
Place the pork chops on the grill over the direct heat area and sear, turning once, until it gives nicely grilled marks, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Move the chops to indirect heat and cover the grill and cook until no longer pink. The internal temperature should reach 145 degrees before you remove it from the grill.
What can I serve as a side to grilled pork chops?
- parmesan garlic roasted (or grilled) potatoes
- green beans
- bacon wrapped asparagus
- mashed potatoes
- side salad
