From the Test Kitchen

These pork chops are balanced by a simple side of broccoli and red potatoes mashed with milk and delightfully squeaky cheese curds while still hot, which helps the cheese deliciously melt. An irresistible pan sauce featuring earthy sage and sweet maple syrup adds flavorful harmony to this easy dish.
