Pork Chops with Blue Cheese Sauce

We made another successful recipe from the Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet Cookbook. This met our weeknight meal requirements of something quick and easy to prepare. From start to finish, this recipe took the two of us about 15 minutes. It paired nicely with some green beans to help soak up the sauce. You do have to like blue cheese to enjoy this recipe. I followed the original recipe use of ingredients with the one substitution of boneless pork chops instead of bone-in. I also grilled my meat until of using the broiler. The nutritional information can be found on the original recipe; just modify for any changes made. We had quite a bit of sauce leftover.

You will need:
*4 pork chops
*1 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
*1 scallion, finely chopped
*1 garlic clove, minced
*1 teaspoon butter
*1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
*2/3 cup skim milk
*3 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
*1 tablespoon white wine or reduced-sodium chicken broth

1. Heat a grill pan or press to medium heat. Sprinkle the pork chops on both sides with pepper. Grill for about 5-7 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature is 160°.

2. While the pork is cooking, use a small saucepan to saute onion and garlic in butter until tender. Sprinkle with flour and stir until blended. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add cheese and wine; heat through. Serve sauce over pork chops.
