What’s better than meat stuffed with more meat? So why not stuff a pork chop with more pork? Or venison, which I’ll get into a little further down.
Stuffed pork chops are truly an amazing meal, and they are surprisingly easy to make. Add brown rice and you have a complete meal. Why go out and pay someone else to cook your food for you when you can do it yourself? There’s a sense of pride and joy that comes over me when I cook a restaurant quality meal with my two hands in my kitchen. It damn near tastes better too. That may just be in my head, but hey it’s there none the less.
When I make stuffed pork chops I use venison instead of pork. I normally use venison sausage because of it’s ease to find over ground venison. When I get venison sausage it is already seasoned so I remove it from the casing and add onions, thyme, and a little more spice.
