    Cook the Pork Chops

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and pork chops to hot pan and cook 4-6 minutes on each side, or until pork is golden brown and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

    Cook the Broccolini

  • Step 4 - Cook the Polenta

    Cook the Polenta

    Add polenta to boiling water in a steady stream to avoid clumping. Stir until consistency is slightly thicker than pancake batter. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook 2 minutes. Stir in butter and half the bleu cheese. Season with ⅔ tsp. salt, ¼ tsp. pepper, and 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Remove from burner and keep covered. If grits begin to stiffen, just stir in water one Tbsp. at a time over medium heat until loosened.

  • Step 5 - Plate the Dish

    Plate the Dish
