Pork Chops with Apple and Gorgonzola Cheese

    35 min

    Any type of blue cheese pairs well with apples and pork. Try to use Gorgonzola as this makes a richer, creamier sauce.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • 4 boneless pork loin chops, butterflied
    • 3 tablespoons butter
    • 2 apples of your choice - peeled, cored and chopped
    • 100g (7 oz) crumbled gorgonzola cheese

    Prep: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 sauté 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.

    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 sauted the pork in olive oil and garlic, without butteryflying them. It just made the recipe that much easier, and tastier.  -  29 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe was great! Everyone knows that apples and pork are great together and apples and gorgonzola are great together, but putting the three together is incredible! My only suggestion is that instead of using this to stuff into a butterflied pork chop, use smaller chops and just use this as a topping. In my opinion, there was just a little too much pork. Also, if you do not like gorgonzola cheese or bleu cheese, then this is not the recipe for you. If you do, then MAKE THIS! Thanks for a wonderfully simple dish that is perfect for family or company! This one's a keeper!  -  22 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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 tenderloin as well, and it is absolutely wonderful.  -  19 Nov 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
