Bacon and metsovone stuffed pork chops


For the rice

  • In a pot add the rice, the water, the turmeric, and stir.
  • Add the vegetable stock pot, pepper, olive oil, the bay leaf, the rosemary, and cover with the lid.
  • Transfer over low heat and simmer until all the liquid is absorbed and the rice is cooked. It will take about 10-12 minutes.

For the pork chops

  • Preheat the oven to 200ο C (390ο F) set to fan.
  • Place a frying pan over high heat.
  • Score the fat that is on the bone of each pork chop at several spots. Make an incision where the flesh is, on the side, and create a pocket for the stuffing. Ideally, the pork chops will have to be pretty thick in order to be able to create a pocket.
  • Cut the metsovone into thin slices, the bacon into small pieces, and divide among the two pork chops.
  • Seal with a toothpick, drizzle with olive oil and add them to the pan vertically, with the fat side touching the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes until it is golden brown.
  • Then, cook them for 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown. With a pastry brush, spread half of the vegetable stock pot on the one side.
  • Transfer to a baking pan with a rack and spread the vegetable stock pot over the other side, too.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes.
  • Serve with oregano and rosemary.
