From the Test Kitchen

Tonight’s crowd-pleasing dinner matches roasted pork with an easy stovetop take on a broccoli gratin, or broccoli baked in a cheese sauce. We’re making Mornay (a classic French cheese sauce) with melty fontina and garlic to coat our sautéed broccoli. A topping of apple, cooked with a bit of apple cider vinegar, completes the dish with a pop of contrasting sweetness in each creamy, comforting bite.

Wash and dry the fresh produce.

Core and small dice the apple.

Peel and roughly chop the garlic.

Cut the broccoli into florets.

Small dice the cheese.

2 Sear & roast the pork:

Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil. Pat the pork dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on all sides. In a large, high-sided pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned pork. Cook, turning occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes, or until browned on all sides. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan on the stove, transfer to the prepared sheet pan. Roast 15 to 17 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.

Cook the apple:
3 Cook the apple:

While the pork roasts, add the apple to the pan of reserved fond. Season with salt and pepper. (If the pan seems dry, add 1 teaspoon of olive oil.) Cook on medium-high, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned and slightly softened. Add the vinegar and ¼ cup of water. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes, or until coated and the liquid has cooked off. Transfer to a bowl; season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside in a warm place. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

While the pork continues to roast, in the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add half the garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned and fragrant. Add the breadcrumbs; cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer to a plate. Season with salt and pepper. Wipe out the pan.

Add ½ cup of water; cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes, or until the broccoli is browned and slightly softened and the water has cooked off. Turn off the heat; season with salt and pepper to taste.

Make the cheese sauce & serve your dish:
6 Make the cheese sauce & serve your dish:

Once the broccoli has cooked for about 5 minutes, in a small pot, heat the butter on medium-high until melted. Add the remaining garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned and fragrant. Add the flour; cook, whisking constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until golden. Add half the milk (you will have extra milk) and ¾ cup of water; season with salt and pepper. Cook, whisking frequently, 3 to 4 minutes, or until thickened. Add the cheese; season with salt and pepper. Cook, whisking constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until the cheese has melted. Turn off the heat; stir in the cooked broccoli. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Find the lines of muscle (or grain) on the rested pork; thinly slice crosswise against the grain. Divide the cooked broccoli and cheese sauce between 2 dishes. Top with the garlic breadcrumbs, sliced pork and cooked apple. Enjoy!
