Organic Pork Chop with Stewed Apples and Gorgonzola

The lean, thin cut pork chop and stewed apples keep this meal healthy while the sprinkle of Gorgonzola adds just the right amount of richness and indulgence. I always use pasture-raised, sustainable meat. 

1 Small Organic Gala Apple
1/4 c Organic Just Tart Cherry Juice
1 Thin Cut Bone-In Pork Chop (3-4 oz meat) 
Organic cooking spray
1 tbsp Crumbled Organic Gorgonzola

Chop apples into small cubes. Add apples and cherry juice to sauce pan, and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer for 25-30 minutes adding water and stirring as needed to keep the bottom of the pan coated with a thin layer of liquid. When the apples are soft, mash the apples into the liquid to create a chunky applesauce.

Coat pork chop with salt and pepper on both sides.  Coat a small saute pan with organic cooking spray and heat the pan to medium-high heat. Brown pork for approximately 2 minutes on each side. Turn the heat down to medium-low, pour the applesauce over the pork and cover to cook for for 3-4 minutes more - until pork is done.

Plate the pork with the applesauce and sprinkle with Gorgonzola cheese. Enjoy!
