Pork Chops with Bulgur Stuffing
Heat broiler; set rack 4 inches from heat. Place bulgur and apricots in a fine sieve set in a bowl; cover with boiling water, and let soak 5 minutes. Drain and rinse with cool water; press to remove excess water. Set aside.Advertisement
Make stuffing: In a large bowl, whisk together egg, cumin, ginger, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add almonds, scallions, and reserved bulgur and apricots; mix to combine.
Slice a deep pocket in each pork chop (do not cut all the way through). Fill with stuffing; press to flatten. Place on a broilerproof baking sheet. Rub with oil; season with salt and pepper. Broil until opaque throughout (160 degrees), 12 to 15 minutes. Serve with your favorite chutney, if desired.
When cooking stuffed chops and roasts, it is important to check the internal temperature of the stuffing to determine doneness.
