Orange Glazed Stuffed Pork Chops
The sweetness of the orange glaze balances perfectly with the savory stuffed pork chops in this advanced camp Dutch oven masterpiece.
Butterflied pork chops are filled with a flavorful stuffing of celery, onion, breadcrumbs, and spices then seared and baked in a camp dutch oven. We like to serve this dish with simple sautéed green beans and a glass of chilled white wine.
