Butterflied Pork Chops Stuffed and Grilled Recipe

Updated on September 24, 2014

One of Susan's passions is cooking and creating new recipes for family and friends.


Background about this recipe

I bought what I presumed was a boneless pork loin roast. I must have been in a hurry when I was going through the meat department that day, as I did not notice all the cuts that were in the roast. When I defrosted the roast and cut open the bag that contained the meat, I saw that it was cut into eleven sections but not cut completely all the way through. I had been wanting to and make a stuffed pork roast on the barbeque for some time, and thought to myself, okay this is the perfect time to try this. I did not use an actual traditional stuffing. I must say that this did come out pretty tasty for what I did stuff the chops with.

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 1 hour 30 min
Ready in: 1 hour 45 min
Yields: Serves 6-7 people


  • 1 large boneless pork roast
  • 2 large sweet onions sliced thick
  • Green and black olives sliced
  • 3 large garlic cloves sliced
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • 8 wooden skewers


  1. Start by placing sliced garlic and onion slices into the cut parts of the roast.
  2. Add as many green and or black olives that you would like.
  3. Sprinkle with fresh ground pepper.
  4. Insert wooden skewers.
  5. This was made on a 3-burner gas barbecue. Turn on the left and right burner to medium. In the center of the barbecue place a foil pan with about ½ inch of water in the bottom. Place your meat in the foil pan.
  6. Close the lid on the barbecue and cook for approximately 1-½ hours or until meat thermometer reads 160F.
  7. Remove and place on a dish, cover with foil for ten minutes.
  8. Serve and Enjoy!

      RH I would be lost without my barbeque.

      Ruby and Chatkath I like just about anything barbequed. Thanks for stopping by to read.

      saddlerider My grandmother used to always roast a chicken at the same time that she would make a pork roast. The two combinations in the same oven come out soooo good. Thanks for stopping in :)

      Your a lady after my own heart. I love most things Pork and when I saw this Hub I had to come and taste a sample, I smelled it and now I tasted it and it's so yummy. Thank you for the great treat. Now I just have to go out to the meat store and buy a pork roast to do up as yummy as you have presented here. Of course red wine and pork go beautifully together as I smack my lips and drool.

      Yummy! I love the recipe but even better - you just helped me figure out what to get Dave for fathers day! A new grill! He is so hard to buy for - ugh - but we had someone working on the house last summer and they tried to move our grill off the deck. Alone. Didn't go so well za it fell off the deck and broke the wheel off so it's really lopsided:) lol!

      Perfect! I got a recipe and a great gift idea! Thanks!

      Gordon Sorry to hear that the weather does not allow you to BBQ that often. During the spring, summer and fall I love to BBQ. It is always so nice to figure out a recipe for something that you bought by mistake.

      sangre Yes it is very easy to make.

      barbergirl Cranberries would probably taste really good with this. If you make it, let me know how it turned out.

      steph Grilling is my favorite way to cook this time of year.

      Bill I will have to try it that way and thanks.

      Pamela Thanks so much.

      b.Malin Very easy to make and please let know if you like it.

      Rochelle Yes that does sound good.

      A.A. I used to love going to IHOP.

      L.L. Please let me know if you try this recipe.

      I'm collecting recipes for use on the grill--this fits right in.

      Too late to satiate my hunger reading this hub by grilling, heading to IHOP for eggs and porkchops. Yummy!

      That looks very good. and I'll bet cranberries or dried soaked apples and apricots would be good too.

      Sounds DELICIOUS Susan...I Love pork chops, my husband can leave them and not look back...However, I'd like to try this on the wish me luck! Thanks for sharing!

      That picture made my mouth water. What a great idea and I have bookmarked this hub. Thanks.

      What a great idea, and what a clever way to make a success out of a mistake!

      You can also make another quick pork stuffing out of bread crumbs, a little milk to moisten, finely chopped onions, a few raisins, and some peeled and diced apples. Season to taste and stuff the same way, securing with skewers.

      I'm going to bookmark this one, Susan!

      Up and wonderful.

      Love it - sounds like a great recipe. I love grilling this time of year.

      That sounds delicious. It is amazing what we can come up with when we accidently end up with the wrong ingredient. I am not an olive fan, so I wonder how some dried cranberries would taste in it's place. Great hub - will definately put that on the meal plan for next time.

      Sounds delicious, Susan. Wish we got the weather here for barbequing but that doesn't happen often. Isn't it strange how sometimes buying a food ingredient by mistake can lead to a fantastic new recipe being discovered? That's happened to me a few times.
