From the Test Kitchen

For this hearty dish, spiced, seared pork chops are elevated by sweet, grated apple, which cooks in the pan alongside the pork and cabbage. It's all topped off with a drizzle of cooling cucumber-yogurt sauce (or tzatziki) and fresh chives.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Grate the apple on the large side of a box grater, discarding the core. Thinly slice the chives.

Brown the pork
2 Brown the pork

Pat the pork dry with paper towels. Season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned pork. Cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until lightly browned. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.

Cook the vegetables
3 Cook the vegetables

To the pan of reserved fond, add the mustard seeds. Cook on medium-high, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until toasted (be careful, as the mustard seeds may pop as they toast). Add the sliced onion and sliced cabbage; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned and slightly softened.

4 Finish & serve your dish

Add the grated apple, demi-glace, vinegar, and 1/3 cup of water to the pan. Stir to combine. Top with the browned pork. Loosely cover the pan with foil and cook, without stirring, 4 to 6 minutes, or until most of the liquid has cooked off. Remove the foil and cook, without stirring, 1 to 2 minutes for medium (the center may still be slightly pink), or until the pork is cooked to your desired degree of doneness* and the vegetables are softened. Turn off the heat. Transfer the cooked pork to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes. Taste the vegetables, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Slice the rested pork crosswise. Serve the sliced pork over the finished vegetables and apple. Top the pork with the tzatziki and sliced chives. Enjoy!
