Herbed Goat Cheese Stuffed Pork Chop

BLEND No.40 CREATIVE RECIPE

As you have guessed, I am constantly in search of new ways to develop and infuse bold flavors into my culinary creations. Of equal importance, is flavor creation that is simple, fast and easy. My Blends were developed for exactly this reason – combine my unique blends of herbs and spices with olive oil and apply to a protein, vegetable or starch and cook. It’s just that easy! What my Blend No.40 does to this pork is almost unbelievable, the addition of fresh thyme and mint perfectly complements the blend with additional bright herbaceous notes. I promise you will be thrilled with the recipe!
