How to make it
- Mash goat cheese, herbs and sun-dried tomatoes together with a fork. Set aside.
- Carefully make an incision in the side of each pork chop, creating a pocket for the cheese. Place a quarter of the goat cheese mixture into each pocket, pressing firmly. You don’t need to seal with toothpicks – in fact, I kind of like that a little of the goat cheese melted out into the sauce during cooking!
- Season the outside of the pork with salt & pepper. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat and sear pork chops until golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Reduce heat to medium and remove pork from skillet and set aside.
- Add mushrooms to skillet and cook for a few minutes. Add marsala wine and broth to pan to deglaze, scraping up any cooked on bits with a spatula. Add rosemary and basil. Bring to a boil and cook until liquid is reduced by half (3 or 4 minutes). Whisk flour into half & half and mix into sauce.
- Return pork chops to pan, covering with sauce and mushrooms. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer another ten minutes, or until pork is cooked through. Arrange chops on plate and smother with sauce.
