Add the diced potatoes to the pot of boiling water. Cook 17 to 19 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Add the buttermilk 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.

Meanwhile, 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 chopped garlic and pepper pieces; season with salt  and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 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 (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until the liquid has cooked off. Transfer to a bowl. Taste, then season with salt and pepper  if desired. Cover with foil to keep warm. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

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 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.

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 sauce 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!
