This year has certainly had it’s up and downs.  But, I have also learned so much.  I have had so much fun learning how to recreate my favorite dishes to fit into the Autoimmune Protocol.  Sharing those dishes with all of you has been an important part of my healing journey.  This entire AIP community has been a beautiful inspiration.  You are why I work tirelessly in my kitchen to provide tasty AIP compliant recipes.  I would simply like to thank all of you for your encouragement of my writing and recipes.  It takes  a lot out of a person to allow themselves to be vulnerable in front of an audience.  You have all embraced me, within this community, with open hearts and lively spirits. Thank you all!

Okay, so now that I got all sappy with you, I guess I should get to the recipe.  This week’s recipe is AIP Mushroom “Risotto” Stuffed Pork Chops.  Risotto is one of my favorite dishes.  I love every risotto I’ve ever tasted.  The creaminess and intense flavors always make my mouth happy.  Mix risotto with pork chops and you’ve got yourself a very pleasing dish!

  1. Cook “risotto”: Melt cooking fat in medium saucepan, over medium/low heat.
  2. Add onions and cook until softened, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add mushrooms and garlic to saucepan.
  4. Cook for 5 minutes, adding small amounts of broth, if needed, to keep from burning.

  14. Preheat oven to 350°.
  15. Slice into each pork chop, lengthwise, at one end of side of chop. Cut into pork chop, carefully, to form a pocket to stuff with “risotto”. Be sure not to cut through the other side of chop.
  16. Stuff each pork chop with cooled “risotto”. Carefully, pack the “risotto” inside of pocket of each chop. Place stuffed chops into baking dish or cast iron skillet
  17. Rub tops of each chop with cooking fat.
  18. Salt, to taste.
  19. Pour broth into baking dish or skillet.
  20. Place in oven and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until internal temperature of chops reaches 160°. Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes.
