To prevent the chops from drying out, we start them on the stove and finish them in the oven.
Ingredients

uncooked lean boneless pork chop(s)

1 pound(s), four chops (1/4-lb each) trimmed

dried plain breadcrumbs

3 Tbsp

uncooked celery

½ rib(s), medium, finely chopped

uncooked onion(s)

½ small, finely chopped

regular liquid egg substitute

2 Tbsp

fresh parsley

1 Tbsp, flat-leaf, chopped

raw sage

1 Tbsp, chopped

black pepper

tsp, freshly ground, or to taste

Instructions

  1. Cut a large, deep pocket in the side of each chop with a very sharp knife.
  2. Combine the bread crumbs, celery, onion, egg substitute, parsley, sage, and pepper in a medium bowl. Fill the pocket of each chop with the mixture; skewer the edges with toothpicks to hold them together, if necessary.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Spray a 1-quart shallow baking pan with cooking spray.
  4. Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set over medium heat. Add the stuffed chops and cook, turning once, until golden brown on each side. Transfer to the baking pan; cover with foil, and bake until the meat is no longer pink and the vegetables in the stuffing are tender, about 10 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking until the stuffing is golden and slightly crispy, 10 minutes more.
