Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

It is a good option if you're following a dairy free diet. It is brought to you by spoonacular user hollyjoy. From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes approximately 45 minutes. Easy Pork Chops on Stuffing, Easy-Prep Pork Chops, and Super Easy Pork Chops! are very similar to this recipe.

Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Riesling are my top picks for Pork Chops. Chardonnay suits simple chops or chops in a butter or cream sauce, dry riesling complements sweet additions like honey mustard or apples, and pinot noir is a safe bet for pork dishes in general. You could try Francois Carillon Bourgogne Chardonnay. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.3 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 26 dollars per bottle.

Francois Carillon Bourgogne Chardonnay

A nutty, fruity nose of beechnut gum. Easy lemon/lime citric fruit, juicy and easy to drink. Quite mineral, herbal and steely on the finish.

Instructions

  1. Make Stovetop stuffing per directions
  2. In the meantime, pat the chops dry with a paper towel and season on both sides with salt and pepper. With a sharp knife, cut 2-3 slices through the fat edge on each chop to prevent curling while chops are cooking. Preheat a non-stick saute pan over medium high heat and quickly sear on each side until lightly browned.
  3. Put chops in dish, cover with foil and put in the oven and roast for approx. 15-25 minutes, uncovered (depending on the thickness of your chops). The chops should be cooked until the no longer dark pink inside, but still moist and juicy, and not overcooked. Remove from the oven and serve.

Tips

Health Tips

  • You have probably heard by now that whole wheat bread is better for you than white bread. While this is true and definitely worth considering, you should be aware that all bread (especially your typical supermarket loaves) will raise your blood sugar and should be eaten in moderation.

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, make sure your bread (and all other ingredients) is truly gluten free.

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.
