Pork Chops with Blue Cheese Sauce Recipe

Pork Chops with Blue Cheese Sauce Recipe

Sometimes a sauce is just a sauce, but with these tender chops, it really makes the dish. If you like a little spice, mix a pinch of nutmeg with the black pepper before you sprinkle it on the meat. —Kathleen Specht, Clinton, Montana
