  5. Heat large cast-iron skillet over high heat. Brush chops with oil and add to pan. Do not overcrowd chops.
  6. Sear for 2-3 minute or until nicely browned on first side. Flip and o other side.
  7. Reduce heat to medium-high and cook 2-3 minutes more per side or internal temperature reads 125-130 for medium rare.
  8. Remove chops to warm platter and top each with ¼” thick pat of the Tomato-Blue Cheese Butter. Let rest 5 minutes, loosely covered with foil.
  9. Smear the mostly melted butter over chops, divide the tomato salad among plates and serve.
