From the Test Kitchen

In this dish, juicy seared pork chops get a vibrant topping of cara cara orange and castelvetrano olives, adding a bit of brightness and acidity to balance the richness of the pork. A hearty side of roasted sweet potato and peppers sit on a blanket of creamy labneh with a touch of Calabrian chile pasta for a kick of heat.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the sweet potato. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then cut crosswise into 2-inch pieces. Halve and peel the onion; cut into 1-inch-wide wedges. In a bowl, combine the labneh, a drizzle of olive oil, and as much of the chile paste as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper.

Roast the vegetables
2 Roast the vegetables

Line a sheet pan with foil. Transfer the diced sweet potato, pepper pieces, and onion wedges to the foil. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and the spice blend. Toss to coat and arrange in an even layer. Roast 21 to 23 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Pat the pork dry with paper towels; season on both sides with salt, pepper, and the oregano. In a medium pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned pork. Cook 4 to 6 minutes per side for medium (the center may still be slightly pink), or until browned and cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes.

*The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 145°F for pork.
