1 cup medium picante sauce
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 pound bulk spicy pork sausage
4 pork chops (1 inch thick)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup prepared zesty Italian salad dressing
In a small bowl, combine the picante sauce, honey and Worcestershire sauce; stir until honey is dissolved. Divide the sauce into two small bowls; set aside.
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.
Grill, covered, over medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until a thermometer inserted in the meat reads 145°, basting twice with sauce from one bowl. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Remove toothpicks. Serve with sauce from second bowl. Yield: 4 servings.
