2 tablespoons kosher salt

2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper

Feta-Stuffed Pork Chops (Core)

1 egg

1/4 cup fat free milk

1/2 cup cornmeal


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.


Mix the cornmeal and whatever spices you like. The cornmeal should be heavily spiced (salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, garlic powder).


In a bit of olive oil, sauté the shallot, then the mushrooms. Add the hot pepper, cook the mushrooms through.


Remove from heat, let cool a bit, mix in the cheese.


Cut a pocket in the pork chops, stuff each with half the cheese mix. Push the stuffing in so you can almost close the pocket.


Beat the egg with the milk. Dip the pork chop in the cornmeal mix, coating all the sides. Dip in the egg wash, then again in the cornmeal.


Heat a skillet with a bit of olive oil in it. Sauté the pork chops for two or three minutes on each side to set up the cornmeal crust.
