Bleu Cheese Pork Chops

Mmmmm, I love just about anything with bleu cheese in it.   This gravy just makes the pork chops so good.  It's easy and quick to make.  You can leave a light coating off of the pork chops if you want to make it a little less starch.  I serve either linguine noodles or mashed potatoes with it.

(serves 4)

*1 cup flour
*1 teaspoon garlic powder
*1 teaspoon onion powder
*1/2 teaspoon paprika
*1 teaspoon salt
*1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
*4 thick cut pork chops (I use center cut)
*2 tablespoons butter
*2 garlic cloves, minced
*1 tablespoon onions, minced
*1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
*2 tablespoons butter
*1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
*1 cup heavy whipping cream
*1/4 cup sour cream
*2-4 ounces crumbled bleu cheese

~In a medium bowl mix flour, garlic powder, onion powder,  paprika, salt & pepper.
~Dredge pork chops in flour mixture and shake off any excess flour.
~Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet, over medium heat.
~Fry pork chops until done (no longer pink in center), about 8-10 minutes on each side.
~Remove pork chops and keep warm.
~Add remaining butter, mushrooms,  minced garlic & minced onions.
~Cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly to loosen up any meat residue from the bottom of the pan.
~Whisk in whipping cream and sour cream and cook for 1 minute.
~Stir in bleu cheese, stirring constantly until sauce thickens up (about 5-8 minutes).
~Serve over pork chops.
