How to Make Stuffed Center-cut Pork Loin Chops

Step-by-Step

  1. In a bowl combine jalapenos, onion, garlic, parsley, rosemary, oregano, juice of two limes, and tequila. Set aside, this is your marinade.
  2. In another bowl combine paprika, cayenne, cumin, salt & pepper. Set aside, this is your spice rub.
  3. In another bowl combine spinach, feta, and sun-dried tomatoes. Set aside, this is your stuffing.
  4. Take pork chops and create a pocket on the side being careful not to cut all the way through. Rub vegetable oil all over chops until coated.
  5. Season both sides of chops with paprika rub.
  6. Next, stuff chops with spinach/cheese filling. If needed, hold seal together with skewers or tie butchers twine around chop. Don't worry about filling falling out.
  7. Next, lay chops out in a pan and liberally spoon herb/tequila marinade over chops. Marinade in fridge for at least an hour, preferably over night.
  8. On a gas grill on medium hi heat, sear both side of the chops at 4 minutes a side. Lower the heat to medium low for an additional 4 minutes on each side. Take chops off the grill and let rest covered for 5 minutes. Before serving, squeeze fresh limes over chops. Enjoy!
