  • 4 pork chops, about 175g/6oz each
  • 100-140g Stilton or other blue cheese such as bleu d'Auvergne or Danish Blue



    A true glory of British cheese-making that has much controversy about its origins, how it's…

  • 4 rounded tbsp apple sauce
  • mashed potato and green veg, to serve


  1. Turn on the grill. Season the chops on both sides with a good sprinkling of salt and pepper. Grill under a moderate heat for 12-16 minutes, turning once, until just cooked.

  2. Add the topping. Thinly slice the cheese (don’t worry if it breaks up a bit). Spoon the apple sauce over the chops and top each one with a couple of slices of cheese. Slide back under the grill for 2-3 minutes until the cheese is melted and tinged brown. Serve with mashed potatoes and a green veg such as leeks or broccoli, and with any melted cheesy bits from the bottom of the pan.

I've made this a few times now and it has never failed to please! It is so easy and delicious and great for a mid-week dinner.

Absolutely lovely! My entire family loved this, even though they aren't usually fans of blue cheese! The only thing I'd say is to make sure the ratio of cheese to apple sauce is done to your own tastes, because it's easy for one ingredient to overpower the other

Sounds good, I'll give it a try. Like a quick meal especially when it's tasty

Excellent recipe, thank you, I made mine with cheddar cheese because that was all I had in, but compliments all around, will make it again and again!

This is a great recipe. I have made this dish numerous times, it is so nice and very easy for a quick dinner. I find a good strong stilton works best.

Not sure what I did wrong but the cheese melted and ran off the chops mostly. It was still delicious however as I just scraped the cheese off the baking tray and placed it back on the chops.
I might try mixing the topping together with some breadcrumbs next time to see if it stays put next time.

I've been making this dish regularly since it came out in 2003, it's our favourite standby quick dinner and long will remain so, quite deservedly.

I often find pork loin steaks (which i used) can be a little dry if grilled so cooked them in the griddle pan with a little oil and then drained on kitchen towel put them on a baking tray and topped with the apple sauce and stilton. Put them in the oven for 15 mins and they were absolutely delicious. I will definately make this recipe again.

Have just made this and am very pleased indeed! Am not a lover of blue cheese but complimented this dish with homegrown apple sauce! Wish I could eat it all over again!

My husband says that this meal is delicious once you get over the repulsive smell!

Nice for a change.
One problem I encountered was I had difficulty keeping the cheese on the chops due to the apple sauce.

This is such a fantastic recipe! I was looking for a meal to use up some of my aunties HM Caramelized Onion Chutney, and this fit the bill perfectly. One I plan to do again and again!
