Reviews for Pork Chops with Blue Cheese Sauce
"this is a really good recipe I will definitely make these again."
"Very tasty sauce! Even my pork chop-hating daughter loves this one!"
"I have made this several times. I usually only have regular onion on hand so I use that instead of the green onion. I have also never used the tablespoon of chicken broth, just so i didn't have to open a brand new can for that little bit. It still turns out great! My husband loves it. A recipe we go to again and again."
"We thoroughly enjoyed these pork chops. They were easy to make. I made the sauce before cooking the chops and kept it warm. We loved the taste.... Makes an elegant presentation. I agree, the nutmeg was a great addition to the pepper."
"Husband and I loved the this recipe! Made it exactly as written. Will do this again."
"This recipe is easy and is most delicious."
"Had taken out some pork chops for dinner for my husband, but he had to leave to work early. He's a plain guy, nothing on. So I ended up making them just for myself, and I wanted something different than plain. Found this recipe, was this ever good and easy. Will make it again."
"Deceptively simple to make and delicious. Easy enough for a week night dinner but fancy enough to serve to company. Im adding this recipe to my do again list."
"Looked the blue cheese sauce. I'm telling you make mashed potato's with this dish and your loved ones will give you a high 5!"
"I made this last night, and let me tell you how yummy it was! I made the sauce exactly as the recipe states and it was so flavorful and creamy. I can see using it on filet mignon or a burger topping too. For me personally, I don't like bone-in pork chops, so I used a pork loin that I cut into medallions and sauteed with salt, pepper and dried marjoram (for fun). Love love!"
"I too made this with feta cheese instead of the blue cheese. They were wonderful!"
"This was very good. I used feta instead of blue cheese b/c I had some in the fridge. I also used a little more butter to make sure the sauce wouldn't break."
"I made this easy recipe yesterday and it was wonderful. My husband really liked it too. It looks and tastes like company's coming."
