From the Test Kitchen

Gremolata—a favorite Italian condiment made with chopped herbs, lemon, and more—is perfect for brightening up simply seared pork chops in this dish. We’re pairing it with a vibrant side of roasted green beans and purple potatoes tossed in a piquant dressing of dijon mustard, roasted peppers, onion, and more.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Cut off and discard any stem ends of the green beans; halve crosswise. Place in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roughly chop the peppers. Halve, peel, and small dice the onion to get 2 tablespoons (you will have extra). Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, zest the lemon to get 1 teaspoon. Quarter and deseed the lemon. Roughly chop the parsley leaves and stems. To make the dressing, in a large bowl, combine the chopped peppers, diced onion, creamy mustard sauce, the juice of 2 lemon wedges, and teaspoons of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. To make the gremolata, in a separate bowl, combine the lemon zest, chopped parsley, 1 teaspoon of olive oil, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper; stir to combine. 

Start the potatoes
2 Start the potatoes

Place the diced potatoes on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer on one side of the sheet pan. Roast 15 minutes. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven. 

Cook the pork
3 Cook the pork

Meanwhile, pat the pork dry with paper towels; season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). In a medium pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned pork. Cook 4 to 6 minutes per side for medium (the center may still be slightly pink), or until browned and cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes. 

An instant-read thermometer should register 145°F.

Roast the green beans & potatoes
4 Roast the green beans & potatoes

Add the seasoned green beans to the other side of the sheet pan of partially roasted potatoes. Carefully arrange in an even layer. Roast 7 to 9 minutes, or until the vegetables are browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. 

Dress the vegetables & serve your dish
5 Dress the vegetables & serve your dish

Add the roasted vegetables to the bowl of dressing; Toss to coat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Slice the rested pork crosswise.
