Forget a panful of hot oil. Just two tablespoons of butter are all you need to perfectly brown four thick, juicy pork chops. Take dinner over the top by serving them alongside our sweet, zingy corn relish.

INGREDIENTS

4 - bone-in pork loin chops, cut 3/4 inch thick
2 - tablespoons butter, melted
1 - egg, lightly beaten
2 - tablespoons milk
1/4 - teaspoon ground black pepper
1 - cup herb-seasoned stuffing mix, finely crushed
1 - recipe Savory Strawberry Salsa or Corn and Red Pepper Relish (optional)


DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Trim fat from chops; set aside. Pour melted butter into a 13x9x2-inch baking pan, tilting pan to coat the bottom. In a shallow dish combine egg, milk, and pepper. Place stuffing mix in another shallow dish. Dip chops into egg mixture, then into stuffing mix, turning to coat. Place chops in the prepared baking pan.


Bake for 10 minutes. Turn chops. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes more or until juices run clear (160 degrees F). If desired, serve with Savory Strawberry Salsa.

FROM THE TEST KITCHEN

*TIP:
Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
