Butterflied Pork Chops with Gorgonzola-Pear Topping

  • Ingredients:
  • 4 boneless, butterflied pork chops
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 medium shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 Bartlett pears, peeled and diced
  • 2/3 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese

Preheat the oven to 400°F and coat a shallow baking pan with nonstick spray.

Arrange the chops in a single layer on the prepared pan, brush with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Combine the shallot, pears and Gorgonzola cheese in a small bowl. Spoon onto the pork chops and bake for 9 to 12 minutes, until the pork reaches a desired doneness.

Makes 4 servings

Recipe Notes:
If you can't get butterflied pork chops, purchase boneless chops between 3/4 and 1-inch thick, slice them in half horizontally to within 1/4 inch of the edge, open the chop, flatten, and proceed with the recipe.
