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.
- 1 3⁄4 lbs pork fillets, approx divided in 4 pieces
- salt and pepper
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 2 teaspoons dried sage or 3 tablespoons chopped fresh sage
- 4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled,i like blue stilton
- 3⁄4 cup cream
- 2 teaspoons coarse grain mustard, maybe some extra
- 2 tablespoons applesauce, smooth or chunky,maybe some extra
- Trim the pork fillets from any fat, season with salt and pepper.
- Melt the butter and oil in a frying pan, add the pork, brown on all sides, add the sage, turn down the heat and cook until almost done.
- Time will depend on the thickness of the fillets.
- While the pork is cooking mix together, the cream, cheese, mustard and applesauce.
- When the pork is almost cooked, remove from the pan to a plate and keep warm.
- Put all sauce ingredients in the frying pan, stir until the cheese has melted and you have a sauce with a nice consistency.
- Now do a taste check, maybe you want to add more applesauce and/or mustard.
- Serve the pork sliced with the sauce spooned over it.
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!
