Stuffed Pork Chops

This was probably one of the first “real” dishes I ever made.  I think I was 12 when I made it the first time.  My grandpa and I would spend hours watching Justin Wilson and his Cajun cooking show on cable.  He used to always say stuff like, “Wooooeeee thats some good eatins right there, I garontee.”  The man had red hot sauce running through his veins.

I remember sitting in front of the TV with my little notebook writing down each ingredient.  Now, if you don’t know Justin Wilson and have never seen his cooking shows… his measurements were “a pinch” and “a dash.”  My favorite would be when he would say something about putting a dash in and would pour half a bottle of hot sauce in.  So, these were guestimates that I was using, to say the least.

My dad took me to the little market in town and let me do my own ordering at the butcher counter.  A big thing for a 12 year old.  Anyways… here’s the recipe.  It’s been tweaked over the last 33 years (holy crap)… but this is what it is for now…
