Baked Apple Stuffed Pork Chops are thick cut boneless pork chops stuffed with goat cheese, apples, and cranberries, seared on the stove top then finished in the oven. They look fancy, but they're super easy to make, and perfect for a holiday dinner!
Preheat oven to 375F.
In a dutch oven over medium heat add 2 tbsp butter and onion. Cook, stirring frequently, until caramelized, about 5 minutes. Stir in apples, celery, craisins, and seasonings, cooking until softened.
Pour in white wine and cook another 2-3 minutes until wine cooks off. Remove from dutch oven into a bowl and set aside to cool.
Placing each chop flat on your cutting board, use a sharp knife to cut a pocket from the side. Go as far as you can without cutting through the other sides.
Stuff each chop evenly with goat cheese, then apple mixture. Close with two toothpicks per chop, one on each end of the pocket.
Add 2 tbsp butter to to dutch oven and sear the chops for a minute or two on each side.
In a small bowl whisk together pineapple juice, cornstarch, and dark brown sugar. Pour over pork chops.
Put lid on dutch oven and transfer to the oven. Bake 40-45 minutes, or until chops are cooked through.
