From the Test Kitchen

In this recipe, vivid purple potatoes, mashed with tangy crème fraîche and savory Parmesan, make for an eye-catching side dish. (Their striking color comes from a pigment that’s also found in black rice and blueberries.) We’re serving these flavorful potatoes together with garlicky green beans—sautéed briefly to enhance their crispness—alongside a succulent pork roast. A simple pan sauce provides a welcome layer of richness, while a smattering of chives completes the dish with delicate pops of herbal flavor.

In a large pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned pork and cook, turning occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes, or until browned on all sides. Transfer to the prepared sheet pan, leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan on the stove. Roast 26 to 28 minutes, or until cooked through. (An instant-read thermometer should register 145°F.)
