Peppered Pork with Chive Sauce
  • 4  boneless pork loin chops, cut 3/4-inch thick
  • 1  teaspoon  coarsely ground tri-colored peppercorns or black peppercorns

Using a wire whisk, heat and whisk over medium heat until the cream cheese is melted. Transfer warm pork to 4 dinner plates. Spoon sauce atop pork. If desired, sprinkle with snipped chives.
