Ingredients

PORK CHOPS:

  • 2 pounds (1 kg) boneless pork chops
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon mild paprika
  • Salt and pepper, to season

SPINACH DIP:

  • 6 oz (170 g) frozen spinach, thawed
  • 8 oz (250 g) block cream cheese, at room temp
  • 1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes packed in oil, drained and chopped
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons dried Italian herbs
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 °F (200°C).
  • Season both sides of each pork chop with the onion powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Slice a pocket into each chop about 3/4 quarter of the way through, being careful not to cut all the way.
  • To make the dip: squeeze and discard excess liquid out of the spinach. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the spinach, cream cheese, sun dried tomatoes, mozzarella, parmesan, herbs and garlic; mix well to combine.
  • Fill pork 'pockets' with 1-2 tablespoons of the spinach dip, spreading evenly with the back of the spoon; seal with toothpicks.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet or non stick pan over medium-high heat. Sear chops in batches until golden on both sides (about 3 minutes per side) until golden. 
  • Transfer chops to HOT oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until no longer pink in the centre. (Internal temperature of 150°F or 65°C with an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a pork chop.)
  • Let pork chops rest for 5 minutes. Garnish with parsley and serve.
