From the Test Kitchen

The classic, comforting pairing of pork and potatoes is always sure to hit the spot. Here, for an exciting Southern twist, we’re serving our roast pork and mashed potatoes over a bed of molasses-stewed collard greens. Cooking the greens with rich demi-glace and molasses—a thick, sweet syrup with an almost smoky quality—turns the hearty leaves deliciously tender, while infusing them with complex, bold flavor.

Sear & roast the pork:
1 Sear & roast the pork:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Pat the pork dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on all sides. In a medium pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned pork; cook, turning occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes, or until browned on all sides. Transfer to a foil-lined sheet pan, leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan on the stove. Roast 18 to 20 minutes, or until cooked through. (An instant-read thermometer should register 145°F.) Remove from the oven and transfer to a cutting board; let rest for at least 5 minutes.
