From the Test Kitchen

For rich complement to smoky pork chops, we’re topping roasted sweet potatoes with a dynamic sauce of preserved lemon purée, creamy labneh cheese, and tangy feta cheese—garnished with pistachios for delightful crunch. A simple side of roasted brussels sprouts and carrots finishes the dish on a hearty note.
