Gruyere Glazed Pork Chops

I get asked for this recipe every time I serve it.  It's very easy to prepare.  The sauce is so rich, only one pork chop per person is needed. Serves 4

4 pork loin chops, 1" thick and trimmed of excess fat
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon of butter
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup apple juice or cider ( you may substitute white wine)
1 1/2 cups finely grated Gruyere Cheese
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/4 cup heavy cream or evaporated milk

Preheat over to 350 degrees. Pat chops dry. Heat oil and butter in a flame-proof casserole over moderately high heat. Brown chops for 4-5 minutes a side. Add salt, pepper, and apple juice. Bake uncovered 50-60 minutes, until chops are tender. Meanwhile, blend together cheese, mustard, and cream. The mixture will not be smooth. Spread the cheese mixture over the top of the pork chops. Broil 3" from heat for 2-3 minutes until lightly flecked with brown.

You can substitute any Swiss Cheese if you have a hard time finding Gruyere.
