I felt a bit like I was in a cooking rut and wanted to switch it up somehow. We hadn’t had pork in a while and I found an inspiration for spinach and feta stuffed pork chops rubbed with fresh sage.
I got thick cut pork chops and sliced deep pockets in them.
For the filling I sauteed spinach and garlic in oil. Once it was wilted, I removed it from heat and stirred in crumbled feta. It was fresh bought from it’s brine and very soft, salty, and tasty.
Get to stuffing!
I was pondering baking them but decided to cook them on the stove top in a stainless steel pan. I chopped up fresh sage mixed with pepper and garlic powder as a rub.
Once the pan was hot, I dusted the chops and sent them in. I flipped them a good couple of times to make sure they were cooked through. After about 5 minutes on each side, I cooked them for about another 5 a side while covered.
As a side, I reduced some bourbon and balsamic and sauteed green beans until they were soft.
I love any meat stuffed 🙂 Especially when it’s stuffed with cheese! I made something similar once with chicken and it was awesome. Yours looks so beautiful!!
