Cook & mash the potatoes:
2 Cook & mash the potatoes:

Add the diced potatoes to the pot of boiling water. Cook 16 to 18 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Add the buttermilk, ghee, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Using a fork or potato masher, mash to your desired consistency. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover to keep warm.

3 Cook the vegetables:

While the potatoes cook, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the green beans in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add 2 tablespoons of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the water has cooked off. Add the prepared peppers and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Add the halved tomatoes. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the vinegar.

In the same pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned pork. Cook 4 to 6 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes.

5 Make the pan sauce & serve your dish:

While the pork rests, to the pan of reserved fond, add the broth (carefully, as the liquid may splatter), honey (kneading the packet before opening), and mustard. Cook, stirring occasionally and scraping up any fond, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the liquid is slightly thickened. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Slice the rested pork crosswise. Serve the sliced pork with the mashed potatoes and cooked vegetables. Top the pork with the pan sauce. Enjoy!
