Seared Pork & Roasted Vegetables with Apple & Sage Pan Sauce
Title
  • 4 Boneless, Center-Cut Pork Chops
  • 1 Apple
  • 2 Purple Top Turnips
  • ½ lb Brussels Sprouts
  • ¾ lb Carrots
  • 1 bunch Sage
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1½ Tbsps Maple Syrup
  • 1 Tbsp Smoky Spice Blend (Smoked Paprika, Sweet Paprika, Ground Yellow Mustard, Garlic Powder & Onion Powder)
  • ¼ tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
Prepare & roast the vegetables:
1 Prepare & roast the vegetables:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the brussels sprouts; halve lengthwise. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 2-inch pieces. Peel the turnip; cut off and discard the ends, then medium dice. Combine the prepared vegetables in a large bowl. Add 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Season with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). Toss to thoroughly coat. Transfer to a sheet pan and arrange in an even layer. Roast 20 to 22 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. 

Prepare the remaining ingredients & start the sauce:

Meanwhile, core and medium dice the apple. Pick the sage leaves off the stems; thinly slice the leaves. In a bowl, combine the mustard, maple syrup, 1/4 cup of water, 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.

Cook the pork & apple:

Pat the pork dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a large pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned pork.

Loosely cover the pan with foil and cook, without stirring, 4 to 6 minutes, or until the apple is slightly softened and the pork is cooked through.* Leaving the apple in the pan, transfer the cooked pork to a cutting board.
