Pork Chops with Blue Cheese Gravy

I was looking for a new pork recipe to try and this one caught my eye on Pinterest.  I like blue cheese which I realize is a little strange for a picky eater but hey it is what it is.   The link on Pinterest lead to All Recipes.

2 tbsp. butter
4 thick cut pork chops
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 c. whipping cream
1 oz. blue cheese, crumbled

Melt butter in a large skillet, over medium heat.  Season the pork chops with black pepper and garlic powder.  Fry the chops in butter until no longer pink and the juices run clear, about 20 to 25 minutes. Turn occasionally to brown evenly.
Remove chops to a plate and keep warm.  Stir the whipping cream into the skillet, loosening any bits of meat stuck to the bottom.  Stir in the blue cheese.  Cook, stirring constantly until sauce thickens, about 5 minutes.  Pour sauce over warm pork chops.

It turned out great.  But sadly it was not so good warmed up as leftovers tonight.
