From the Test Kitchen

For exciting texture and piquant flavor, we’re quickly pickling mustard seeds (along with honey and shallot) to make a sophisticated topping for our pork chops in this recipe. We’re rounding it out with comforting sides of slaw and a mustardy potato salad whose dressing gets a tangy kick from buttermilk.

Prepare the ingredients & make the dressing:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the dressing:

If you’re grilling, preheat your grill to maintain a temperature of 450-500°F. Oil the grill grates. Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Peel and small dice the shallot. Peel and finely chop the garlic; using the flat side of your knife, smash until it resembles a paste (or use a zester). In a bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, mustard, oregano, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of water, and as much of the garlic paste as you’d like; season with salt and pepper.

Make the potato salad:
2 Make the potato salad:

Add the diced potatoes to the pot of boiling water and cook 13 to 15 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Add the dressing and stir to coat; season with salt and pepper to taste. 

Make the slaw:
3 Make the slaw:

While the potatoes cook, in a medium bowl, combine the sliced cabbage, half the honey (kneading the packet before opening), half the vinegar, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 

Make the pickled mustard seed topping:
4 Make the pickled mustard seed topping:

While the slaw marinates, in a medium pan, combine the mustard seeds, diced shallot, remaining honey, remaining vinegar, and 1/4 cup of water; season with salt and pepper. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly reduced in volume. Transfer to a heatproof bowl. Stir in a drizzle of olive oil. Set aside to cool at least 10 minutes.

Cook the pork & serve your dish:
5 Cook the pork & serve your dish:

STOVE: Rinse and wipe out the pan used to make the mustard seed topping. Pat the pork dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned pork and cook 4 to 6 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through. Turn off the heat.
GRILL: Pat the pork dry with paper towels. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper on both sides. Grill 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through. Transfer to  a plate.
