Easy Stuffed Pork Chops by Noreen

Nor M.


This version goes way back. It was around 30 years ago when I asked a co-worker how she made them. She just said make your favorite stuffing and add onion soup. That is what I did. This dish helped win my husband over. Lol. He was impressed. The rest is history. These chops and my beef stew won his heart. . That is a little story he tells people. I make a few versions of this dish. This is the easiest of them all. Enjoy!
