    From the Test Kitchen

    This rich, savory dish features a silky sauce that highlights mushrooms, crème fraîche, demi-glace, and more. We're finishing our seared pork in the sauce, then spooning it over the top for a decadent, creamy finish. Hearty roasted potatoes and green beans round out the dish in classic style.

    • ½ lb Mushrooms
    • ¾ lb Green Beans
    • 1 bunch Parsley
    • 1 bunch Thyme
    • ¼ cup Cream
    • 1 Tbsp Whole Grain Dijon Mustard
    • 1 Tbsp Verjus Rouge
    • 1 oz Salted Butter
    • 2½ Tbsps Chicken Demi-Glace

    Prepare the ingredients & start the sauce
    1 Prepare the ingredients & start the sauce

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Thinly slice the mushrooms. Cut off and discard any stem ends from the green beans; place in a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Roughly chop the parsley leaves and stems. In a bowl, combine the flour and spice blend. In a separate bowl, combine the cream (shaking the packet before opening), mustard, demi-glace, and crème fraîche.

    Roast the vegetables
    2 Roast the vegetables

    Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the diced potatoes and thyme sprigs on the foil. Drizzle with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat; arrange in an even layer on one side of the sheet pan. Roast 12 minutes. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven. Carefully place the seasoned green beans in an even layer on the other side of the sheet pan. Return to the oven and roast 9 to 11 minutes, or until the vegetables are browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. Carefully pick out and discard the thyme sprigs.

    Cook the pork
    3 Cook the pork

    Meanwhile, pat the pork dry with paper towels; season on both sides with salt, pepper, and the spiced flour (pressing gently to adhere). In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle 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.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate. 

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 145°F for pork.

    To the pan of reserved fond, add the butter and sliced mushrooms. Cook on medium- high, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, or until the mushrooms are softened. Add the verjus (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until combined. Add the sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
