- After the first 15 minutes, take the baking dish out of the oven and pour white wine over the fillets. Put the baking dish back in the oven.
- Cut the blue cheese into thin slices.
- Put the cream in a pot over medium heat. Before it boils, add the slices of blue cheese. Stir constantly so both ingredients blend well and begin to form a cream.
- When the cream has thickened enough, add the Provence herbs and keep on stirring over low heat for about 2 or 3 minutes. If the sauce isn’t thick enough, add some butter or cream.
- Once the pork loin fillets are ready, turn off the oven, take the baking dish out, and pour the blue cheese sauce over the fillets.
- When serving, you can decorate with another pinch of Provence herbs and some fresh parsley.
