How to make it
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
- Apple stuffing: In a saute pan or skillet on medium heat, melt the butter and saute thyme, chopped apples, salt and pepper together until the apples are completely softened; about 15 to 20 minutes.
- Place the apple mixture in a bowl and mix in 1/2 cup Gorgonzola cheese. The cheese should liquefy into the stuffing within a couple of minutes.
- Pork chops: Butterfly the pork chops by slicing them parallel to the plane of the chop from the fat side to the bone. Stuff each one with about 2 to 3 tablespoons of the apple mixture.
- Place the chops on a rack with the two stuffing sides pressed together to hold the stuffing inside the chops. Bake the chops for about 1 hour.
- Sauce: Heat the oil in a saute pan or skillet on medium heat, then saute the garlic until transparent then add the sherry, let cook for a minute until combined, then add the cream and 1/4 cup of the chicken stock, salt and pepper. Stir until well blended. Stir occasionally and reduce the liquid on medium high heat until the sauce begins to to caramelize and turn darker brown. Add the remaining 1/4 cup chicken stock and the cheese and continue reducing until there is just 1/4 to 1/2 cup of thick liquid remaining.
