Making a pocket in a pork chop to hold as much stuffing as possible is easily done.
1. Use a sharp, pointed knife to make a slit in the fatty side of the chop.
2. Work the knife inside the chop, cutting almost to the other side (or to the bone) without cutting through it and widening the size of the original slit.
3. Spoon the stuffing into the pocket and use 1 or 2 wooden toothpicks to close the opening.
