Pork Chops Stuffed and Grilled

We often grill in the winter with snow on the deck but the real grilling season starts on Memorial Day. I’ll be cleaning and scouring the winter off the gas grill this week and reviewing favorite grilling recipes to start the warm weather grill season.

We’ve done grilled stuffed pork chops many times but recently have stepped up the level of stuffing inspired by a recipe from Fast Entrees by Hugh Carpenter and Terri Sanderson.

Ingredients:

4 fresh pork chops(bone in) at least 1 ½ inches thick

½ cup mixed dried fruit chopped well
BBQ sauce-1/2 cup of your favorite

In a bowl, mix the cheese, garlic, oregano, salt, pepper flakes and fruit
Stuff the mixture in the chops

Sear each side of the chops for about two minutes
Lower heat to medium low on a gas grill or to indirect heat on a charcoal grill
