Pork chops for a kid with a food allergy? Why not!
Read my tutorial, if you do not know how to make good pork chops for your kid.
I enriched the simple pork chops with mushroom stuffing because the basic version can be a little bit boring. Below you will find the recipe for the mushroom stuffing and for the pork chops.
Pork chops with mushroom stuffing
- 4 lean pork loin chops;
- 1 garlic cloves, crushed;
- salt and pepper to taste;
- 4 tbsp bread crumbs.
Ingredients for stuffing:
- 1 medium onion;
- 4 mushrooms;
- salt and pepper to taste.
The first step is to pound the pork chops out into thick slices. Some people do not like the noise when they are pounding the meat out, and probably they will try to skip this step but I do not recommend it. Stuffed pork chops need a bit more time to be well done than those without stuffing. We do not want to burn the skin and still have uncooked meat inside, so please pound the pork chops out. You can place a cotton kitchen towel under the board to reduce the noise. Place a big piece of a plastic wrap on the board, then place the pork chops, then cover them with another piece of plastic wrap. Use a meat hammer to pound them thin.
Using a knife rub the pork chops with a crushed garlic. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside.
Let’s make a stuffing. Chop the onion and mushrooms.
Cook mushrooms and onion on a frying pan until golden brown. At the and of cooking season them with salt and pepper to taste.
Apply a spoon of stuffing on each pork loin chop.
Fold each pork chop in half. If you are concerned that your chops will open during frying, you can secure them with toothpicks. I generally do not use this method. Do whatever will work for you better. You can see how secure the chops using toothpicks below.
Put the bread crumbs into a small bowl and coat the pork chops with those crumbs.
Fry chops over medium heat on both sides until golden brown.
Adults can replace the mushroom stuffing with cheese, for example mozzarella cheese.
You can serve this dish with rice with mushrooms.
