Pork Chops with Apple and Blue Cheese

    35 minutes

    Blue cheese and pork are a natural combination but Gorgonzola is best for a richer, creamier sauce. Serve with green beans on a bed of mashed potatoes.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • 4 boneless pork loin chops
    • 60g butter
    • 2 apples of your choice - peeled, cored and chopped
    • 1 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Butterfly each pork chop by slicing horizontally through the centre with a sharp knife. Leave them attached on one side so they can be flipped open to create a butterfly shape.
    2. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium high heat. Add pork chops, reduce heat to medium and cook slowly for 5 to 7 minutes each side, or until they are done to your liking. Set aside.
    3. Melt butter in a medium frying pan over medium heat. Add apples and cook until tender, then turn off heat and add cheese to frying pan. Mix together slowly to form a creamy thick sauce.
    4. Place reserved chops on serving plate and stuff each one with 1/4 of the apple and cheese mixture. Serve hot.

    Took shortcuts. I thought this recipe was great, after I made some modifications. I love Gorgonzola cheese, but too much can be a bit bitey. To cut down on this, I added brown sugar to the butter/apple mixture and let that simmer in there to sweeten it up a little. Also, I sauteed the pork in olive oil and garlic, without butteryflying them. It just made the recipe that much easier, and tastier.  -  08 Oct 2008


    I love blue cheese but this recipe had too much, even for me. The flavour of the apples were lost in the strong blue cheese. I would have liked it better with about half the amount of blue cheese the recipe called for. To make this recipe even easier, I wonder how it would come out if you put raw apples and blue cheese in a pork tenderloin split down the centre and baked.  -  08 Oct 2008


    I thought this was delicious as did my boyfriend. Clearly if you do not like gorgonzola cheese, you probably won't like this, but if you do, you'll LOVE it!! I've made the sauce as a topping for pork fillet as well, and it is absolutely wonderful.  -  08 Oct 2008
