Gourmet Boneless Pork Chops Stuffed w/Gorgonzola & Apples

You have GOT to try this recipe! It is simply Easy Gourmet cooking and delicious. I honestly thought this would take a long time to prepare but it was quick and super easy.

2 boneless pork chops
1 chopped fresh garlic glove
1 chopped green apple (use 2 apples for 4 pork chops)
1 container Gorgonzola Cheese Crumbles
1 tsp butter
1/4 tsp Thyme
Whipping Cream or Half & Half

In a hot skillet add butter, peeled and chopped garlic clove, chopped green apple and thyme until starting to soften and brown approx 3-5 minutes over medium heat. Remove from heat, transfer to a bowl and add 1/2 of your gorgonzola cheese crumbles; stir together.

Take your pork chops (depending on their size), either cut a slit in the side so you can stuff or if larger chops you can just stuff the center, fold over and toothpick the end. Take your cheese/apple mixture and stuff your pork chops, being sure not to overstuff them.

Once you have stuffed your pork chops, in a hot buttered skittet, brown the chops on each side 3-4 minutes per side then place in preheated oven on 400 for approx 10 minutes until done. (Optional: you can grill your chops 3-4 minutes each side on medium heat then turn heat down to low for approx 7-10 minutes until done.)

While the chops are browning on each side, in a separate sauce pan, add your remaining gorgonzola cheese and add 2 TBSP of whipping cream or half & half and whisk over low heat until melted. Be sure not to burn (if you want a thinner topping add more cream). FYI...I just made this dish and I personally didn't like the cream sauce on top.

Once you take your cooked chops out of the oven, place each one on a plate and drizzle the hot cheese mixture over the top and serve with fresh sauted vegetables.

This dish didn't take long to prep or prepare, I thought it would take longer but it was easy, quick and delicious.

Bon Appetit!
