Corn-And-Cilantro-Stuffed Pork Chops
pork chops, double-thick
corn, fresh cut from cob
cilantro leaves, finely chopped
soft bread crumbs, lightly packed
Cut a pocket between the first and second rib of each chop starting at the round end and working in to 1/2 inch away from the bone edge.
Mix the remaining ingredients well in a small bowl.
Fill the chop pockets with the stuffing mix.
Seal the pockets by inserting toothpicks at an angle into the round edge of the chops.
Arrange the stuffed chops in a large skillet.
Cook for 10 minutes over medium-high heat, or until the bottom side is just lightly browned.
Turn the chops over and repeat the process.
Lower the heat to simmer and add 1/2 cup hot water.
Cover the skillet and cook 35-40 minutes, or until the chops are no longer pink inside.
Add more water if necessary to keep the liquid level constant.
Remove the chops from the skillet.
Remove the toothpicks from the chops and serve immediately.
