Italian Sausage Stuffed Pork Chop


  1. In a small bowl, combine the salsa, honey and steak sauce; stir until honey is dissolved. Divide the sauce into two small bowls; set aside.
  2. In a small skillet over medium heat, brown pork until no longer pink; drain. Meanwhile, cut a deep slit in each chop, forming a pocket. Stuff with sausage; secure with toothpicks. Sprinkle chops with garlic powder and pepper. Brush each side with Italian dressing.
  3. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until a thermometer inserted in the meat reads 160 degrees, basting twice with sauce from one bowl. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Remove toothpicks. Serve with sauce from second bowl
