Pork Chops

with Smashed Sweet Potato, Roasted Broccoli & Herbs

Pork Chops with Smashed Sweet Potato, Roasted Broccoli & Herbs

As summer winds down, farmers start to harvest beautiful broccoli and a wide array of amazing potatoes. In this dish, we feature classic, juicy, center-cut pork chops with roasted broccoli and smashed sweet potato. Maple sugar, the reduced solid of maple syrup, not only helps us look forward to fall, but also lends a touch of sweetness to this dish.

  • 2 Boneless Pork Chops

Stack then roll up the sage leaves. Thinly slice the rolled leaves crosswise to get thin ribbons. Divide the smashed sweet potatoes and broccoli between 2 plates.

Squeeze some lemon juice over the broccoli and pork before eating. Enjoy!
