Ingredients
  1. 4 (4-ounce) boneless center-cut loin pork chops, trimmed
  2. 1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled blue cheese
  3. 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  4. 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  5. 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  6. 1 1/2 teaspoons butter
  7. 1 ripe pear, cored and cut into 16 wedges
Instructions
  1. 1. Cut a horizontal slit through thickest portion of each pork chop to form a pocket. Stuff 2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese into each pocket. Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper evenly over both sides of pork. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add pork to pan; sauté for 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove pork from pan, and let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. 2. Melt butter in pan; swirl to coat. Add pear; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Sauté 4 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Serve with pork.
