From the Test Kitchen

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.
