4 pork chops

Ingredients

  • Four 1-inch bone-in pork chops
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • One 8-ounce jar of hot stuffed cherry peppers

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Lightly dredge the pork chops in the flour. Then, heat the oil in a medium-sized skillet and brown the chops on either side. Once browned, remove from the pan and slice a pocket into the non-bone side of each chop and stuff with the shredded pepper jack, using a toothpick to seal it.

Squeeze the stuffing out of the cherry peppers, slice the actual pepper, and sauté both the stuffing and sliced pepper until smooth. Smear on top of each pork chop and drizzle the remaining oil from the sautéd pepper mixture on top and place in the oven. When pork chops are cooked through, about 25 minutes, put them under the broiler for 5 minutes so the peppers crisp, then remove and serve. 

Cherry Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Cherry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
