From the Test Kitchen

Spice rubs, used to coat meats or fish before cooking, are an easy way to achieve incredible flavor. Here, we’re using classic barbecue seasonings like brown sugar, paprika, and garlic powder to coat our pork chops. We’re serving the pork with mustardy potato salad made with bell pepper—yours may be green, purple, or even show streaks of red. Broccoli and tomatoes marinated with vinegar and shallot add refreshing contrast.

1 Prepare the ingredients & marinate the shallot:

Heat a small pot of salted water to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and finely chop the shallot. Place in a bowl; add the vinegar and sugar and season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, for at least 10 minutes. Cut off and discard the bottom ½ inch of the broccoli stem. Cut the broccoli into small pieces. Quarter the tomatoes; place in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Medium dice the potatoes. Cut out and discard the stem, ribs, and seeds of the pepper. Medium dice.

2 Cook the broccoli & marinate the vegetables:

Fill a bowl with ice water; add a pinch of salt. Set aside. Add the broccoli to the pot of boiling water. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until bright green and slightly softened. Leaving the pot of water boiling, using a slotted spoon or strainer, immediately transfer the cooked broccoli to the bowl of ice water. Let stand until completely cool. Drain thoroughly; pat dry with paper towels. Transfer to a medium bowl; add the seasoned tomatoes, half the marinated shallot (including half the marinating liquid), and a drizzle of olive oil.

Add the seasoned pork chops and cook 4 to 6 minutes per side, or until lightly browned and cooked through. Turn off the heat. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate and let rest for at least 5 minutes.
