Butterflied Cuban Stuffed Pork Chops - Oh My....

I can't even tell you how long I've wanted to do this cook. If I'm not mistaking, this is my third cell phone I've re-saved the recipe to. With all the pork chop cooks lately this recipe was on!

The chop that almost got away.... until tonight.

I started out with seasoning the chops with Dip Stix - Mary's Favorite rub. (Highly recommend this rub) The pork chops were stuffed with: Muenster cheese, pepperoni slices, ham, sandwich pickle, and coated with a mustard glaze on the outside.

These were hands down the best pork chops I've ever ate. I'm super judgmental and a hard critic on myself when cooking but these were just soooooo right. Not trying to sound super conceited or anything but these are a winner! I was planning on only eating half the pork chop but only remembered when I was finishing off the last few bites. Oops my bad. For the sides I grilled up some cheesy pickles. Seasoned the pickles with Oak Ridge Habanero Death Dust. Once plated I drizzled the pickles with bbq sauce. Took some pics along the way.

    @Mattman3969‌ Thanks!

    @TTC‌ Pickles are always a good and easy snack

    @cazzy‌ Much appreciated!

    Holy crap!  That's genius.  How long did you cook them and how did you determine they were done.  I'm thinking with a boneless pork loin cut into relatively small pieces, this could be the tailgating food of the year.  Breadless Cuban pork loin sliders.  Is there any reason that wouldn't work?

    @ChillyWillis‌ Thanks!

    Cheese, ham, pepperoni, with a sandwich pickle. It's a great and easy recipe.

    I doubled the amount of glaze and used a hot mustard along with the dry mustard ingredient

    @Focker‌. Thank you, I'm blushing :))

    @Photo Egg‌ I knew I should have wrapped it in bacon! :))
  • WeberWhoWeberWho Posts: 6,246
    @Egghead_Daron‌ I highly recommend it. I posted the recipe a few post above.

    I did a road trip with some buddies a few weeks ago and we hit up a KFC buffet along the way. I use to have KFC every so often as a kid but probably have gone 15+ years without stopping in one. So I was excited to get my fix with all the great memories I had attached with it as a kid. Man oh man was I disappointed! Everything was so dried out with little flavoring. I enjoyed the coleslaw but can't say much else. Maybe it was just that location. I'm interested in checking out what this double down is all about!
  • SmokeyPittSmokeyPitt Posts: 9,838
    That is awesome...and low carb!  I'm off bread for a while so this is high on my list! 

    Double down:

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    I had the egg going at 350 and flipped the chops every 4 minutes or so until done. I wasn't sure if the mustard glaze would burn so I kept turning them. The heat didn't seem to bother the glaze any. Definitely give it a try. I'm tempted to try this recipe again in the smaller bone in chops.

    @Foghorn‌ I was thinking the same thing this morning. It should work the same with a pork loin. Probably be cheaper than buying individual chops and doing it. Worth a shot trying anyway!

    I flipped every 4 minutes and used my Thermapen to check when done. The chops took around 15 minutes with the egg stabilized at 350. The reason why I flipped every 4 minutes was because I wasn't sure if the mustard glaze was going to burn. Give it a go. You won't be disappointed!
  • WeberWhoWeberWho Posts: 6,246

    Thanks for the pic of the double down. My arteries hurt just looking at it!

    I definitely recommend giving this a try. It really is good. Great combination of flavors and with no bread! Win-win!
  • Keep cooking stuff like that and not waiting, Dagum That's Awesome. I made homemade cubans awhile ago but I like the breadless one much, much better.

    It only took 3 years to remember. :-O. This cook actually reminded me that I have corned beef in the freezer yet for Ruben sandwiches. Also want to do some ribs with the sauce you gave me. Maybe this weekend.
