Spinach and Blue Cheese Stuffed Pork Chops

Thick cut pork chops stuffed with spinach and blue cheese, pan seared then finished off in the oven.

Spinach and Blue Cheese Stuffed Pork Chops recipe

servings: 4

total time: 35 minutes

recipe by: 


  • 4 thick-cut boneless pork chops (about 6 ounces each)
  • 2 TBSP plus 1 TBSP olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • 10 ounces frozen chopped spinach
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 2 ounces blue cheese crumbles
  • 1 lemon cut into wedges


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.

  2. Pat the pork chops dry with paper towels. Using a sharp knife cut a deep pocket (without going all the way through the pork chop) in the thickest side of each pork chop. Drizzle the pork chops with 2 TBSP of olive oil and rub the oil all over the chops to coat. Generously season the pork chops all over with salt & pepper and set aside.

  3. Heat the remaining 1 TBSP of oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the spinach and 1/4 tsp salt to the hot oil and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 4 minutes. Stir in the garlic and crushed red pepper and cook for 1 more minute. Take the pan off the heat and stir in the blue cheese. Stuff the spinach mixture evenly into the pork chops and set aside.

  4. Heat a large cast-iron skillet over high heat until very hot. Sear the pork chops for 2 minutes then flip and sear the other side for 1 minute. Arrange the lemon wedges in the pan with the pork chops and place the skillet in the oven. Bake until pork chops are cooked through, about 8 minutes.

  5. Remove the pork chops from the oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
