Savory, juicy, and delicious pork chops with a creamy spinach topping.
- 1/4 cup onion sliced
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 7 oz spinach washed
- 6 oz cream cheese cubed
- salt to taste
- pepper to taste
- 5 thick-cut pork chops

Preheat oven to 400ºF.
Cook the onion and the garlic, until translucent.
Add the washed spinach. Cook until wilted.
Add the cream cheese, salt, and pepper, and stir until melted. Set aside and allow to cool.
Make a slit on the side of the pork chop, making a pocket but not cutting all the way through.
Fill the pork chop with the spinach mixture. Season with salt and pepper both sides.
In a hot pan, sear the pork chop, until golden brown on both sides.
Move pork chop to a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, or until pork is cooked through.
