Units Scale
  • 4 boneless pork chops, butterflied and flattened
  • 1/3 cup Vegan Fig Salami with Orange Zest, grated
  • 2 Tablespoons chives, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup hazelnuts, chopped
  • 2oz stilton blue cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Sea Salt with Smoked Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Aleppo pepper
  • 1/2 cup Riesling wine or chardonnay
  • 1/2 cup Riesling wine or chardonnay to deglaze the pan and pan sauce
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock for the pan sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt with Smoked Paprika for the pan sauce to adjust salt level if need it.
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil, for drizzle


  1. Set your oven on the “roast” selection and pre-heat to 375-F
  2. With a sharp knife, cut the pork chops in the center and make an incision almost to the end. (butterfly cut)
  3. With a meat pounder, flatten the pork chops.
  4. Mix in a small bowl Sea Salt with Smoked Paprika, and Aleppo pepper.
  5. Season both sides of the flattened pork chops with the salt mixture.
  6. Stuff the pork chops first with Stilton blue cheese; then the Vegan Fig Salami, chives, and hazelnut. Drizzle on some extra virgin olive oil.
  7. Pour ½ cup of Riesling wine in the roasting pan, and place them in the oven.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the internal temperature registers 145-F. When done, take the stuffed pork chops out.
  9. Make the Sauce: Deglaze the pan with 1/2 cup of wine and let the alcohol evaporate. Then add the chicken stock. Season with smoked paprika sea salt if needed. Let the sauce get a bit thick. Optional: you can add grated fig salami or a tablespoon of fig jam for a saucier sauce.
  10. Remove the twine, pour on some sauce, and serve.
