- 6 double pork chops, slit for stuffing
- 1 tbsp shortening
- Salt and black or cayenne pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup Heinz 57 Sauce
- 1/3 cup water

Place stuffing in pockets of pork chop and secure with a toothpick or string.
In a heavy skillet, brown the chops in shortening; sprinkle with salt and pepper(s).
Place chops in a shallow baking pan. Combine the Heinz 57 sauce and water; pour over chops.
Cover pan with foil. Bake in an oven preheated to 350 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until chops are tender. For a browner pork chop, you could remove the foil 15 minutes before the end of the cooking cycle.
Remove toothpicks before serving. Skim excess fat from sauce; thicken sauce with one tablespoon flour/water mixture. You should have about 1 ½ cups of sauce.
