Ingredients

  • 2 (3/4 inch thick) bone-in pork chops

  • 1 (4 ounce) package sliced fresh mushrooms

  • 4 ounces diced Swiss cheese

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 2 eggs

  • ¾ cup bread crumbs

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • ½ cup white Zinfandel wine, or as needed

Directions

  1. Lay pork chops flat onto your work surface. Use the tip of a sharp boning or paring knife to cut a pocket in each pork chop making a 2 inch slit in the side.

  2. Mix mushrooms, Swiss cheese, parsley, garlic powder, black pepper, and salt in a bowl; stuff pork chops with mushroom mixture. Secure the open side with a toothpick.

  3. Whisk eggs in a bowl; pour bread crumbs into a separate bowl. Dip the stuffed pork chops into the beaten egg; press pork chops into bread crumbs until completely coated.

  4. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat; place pork chops, pocket side-down, into the hot oil. Cook until outside of pork chops is browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

  5. Pour in enough wine to come halfway up pork chops. Reduce heat to low, cover skillet, and simmer until pork chops are tender, about 2 hours. Check wine level occasionally and add more as needed. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
