Serving Suggestions: Young chefs can help put this simple recipe together with adult supervision. For a variation, use garlic powder instead of ground ginger. Serve with buttered broccoli and sugar snap peas along with spice cake for dessert.
4 boneless pork top loin chops, 1/2-inch thick
3 Tbs butter, divided
ground pepper, to taste
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 2/3 cups water
1 6-oz pkg stuffing mix for pork
2 Tbs orange marmalade, OR apricot preserves
In large nonstick skillet, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium-high heat. Sprinkle chops lightly with pepper; add to skillet. Cook about 5 minutes, turning once until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 160 degrees F.
Remove chops from skillet. Stir remaining 2 tablespoons butter and ginger into skillet; add water. Bring to boiling. Stir in stuffing mix just to moisten. Top with chops.
Spoon orange marmalade or apricot preserves over chops. Cover and cook over low heat for 3 to 4 minutes or until heated through.
Random Safety Tip: If using a microwave to thaw your pork, cook immediately after thawing.
