    4 (4-ounce) boneless center-cut loin pork chops, trimmed
    1 ounce crumbled blue cheese*
    1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
    1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
    1 1/2 teaspoons butter*
    2 ripe pears, cored and each cut into 8 wedges (16 wedges total)


1. Cut a horizontal slit through thickest portion of each pork chop to form a pocket. Stuff 1/4 of crumbled blue cheese into each pocket. Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper evenly over both sides of pork. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add pork to pan; sauté for 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove pork from pan, and let stand for 5 minutes.

2. Melt butter in pan; swirl to coat. Add pears; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Sauté 4 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Serve with pork.
