Pork With A Blue Cheese Apple and Mustard Sauce

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 25 mins

Keep some extra mustard and applesauce ready, depending on the saltiness of the cheese you use you might want to add some more. I buy the ready-made applesauce. If I do use fresh sage I like to use the pineapple sage that I grow in my garden. This is a simple but elegant dish and easy to double for dinner parties. It is from the Good Food magazine, I just changed it a bit to make it easier to put together.

i used pork cutlets for this dish, whick cooked up real quickly, but what makes this is the sauce! i used gorgonzola, chunky apple sauce, creole mustard and the combined flavor was unbelievably delicious! i never would have thought of this combination, thanks updated 6/6/10-- all these years later, still love the sauce. i used fresh sage and rosemary from the garden.

Wow. This had a really strong flavor, using a full 4 oz of blue cheese. However, after adding 2 individual containers of apple sauce, it turned out really good. A really unique flavor. I had no idea how to add the sage. I was not sure if I was to sprinkle on the pork chops or stir it around in the pan juices. All in all it was a good recipe.

Ohhh! This was a good one! Every one loved it. The recipe was quick and easy. It smelled wonderful after adding the sage to the pan. I didn't have plain applesauce, only strawberry flavored (in the individual serving size)but it didn't make a noticeable difference. I will add extra applesauce next time so that we can taste it. The blue cheese is such a nice flavor, but it did drown out the apple. That's definately not a complaint tho! I served the pork with a caesar salad and garlic bread. Even the picky four year old of a friend who was eating with us liked the "chicken". LOL We'll be making this one again. Thanks!
