This one is so decadent it's just sinful.

1 tablespoon Butter
1 cup Chopped peeled apple
1 teaspoon Thyme
¼ cup Crumbled gorgonzola cheese
4 8 oz. pork chops 1-1 1/2" thick
¼ teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoon Black pepper
2 tablespoon Olive oil
1 ½ teaspoon Butter
2 Garlic cloves - sliced
¾ cup Chicken stock
2 tablespoon Whipping cream
½ cup Crumbled gorgonzola cheese
¼ teaspoon Black pepper
1 tablespoon Chopped Italian parsley

Directions: Melt the butter in a small saut‚ pan over medium heat.
Add the apple and thyme and cook until soft and beginning to brown. Transfer to a small bowl and add the gorgonzola. Set aside. Insert a thin bladed knife into the side of each chop and cut a pocket. Fill each pocket with the cooled apple stuffing. Do not overstuff. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. To prepare the sauce, cook the butter and garlic in a small pan over medium heat for 1-2 minutes. Add the chicken stock, cream, gorgonzola and pepper. Boil the sauce for 10 minutes until reduced and thickened. Stir in the parsley. While the sauce is reducing, grill the pork chops. Rub the chops with olive oil and cook for 3 minutes on each side, or until juices run clear. You can also broil or saut‚ the chops for 4-5 minutes on each side. Place cooked chops on platter and serve sauce on the side.

I see you recognize the superiority of NY-style pizza. Good taste. :tu
I think I'll give your recipe a try the next time we have pork chops. My wife's kinda picky about cheese (doesn't like bleu cheese, if you can believe that), which is why I was wondering if you ever tried making the chops with feta.

Haven't tried it with feta. It would probably be good. Give it a whirl with the gorg though. It really melds with the other flavors beautifully even if you're not to big on the cheese by itself the combo is awesome. And yeah, my fiance is from CT. I gain 5lbs every time I go up north:D

I use to make a very similar dish except I would use Goat Cheese. Will have to try it with Gorgonzola.

Any meat with Goganzola is a great meat in my book!!! Love the NY strip with it!! Might have to grill some up this weekend
