    From the Test Kitchen

    The tangy-sweet flavor of the classic barbecue sauce that tops our seared pork chops gets a spicy kick from gochujang—a savory paste made from chiles and fermented soybeans. We're serving it with a hearty side of sautéed green beans topped with crispy onions for a satisfying textural contrast.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes
    1 Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Line a sheet pan with foil. Halve the sweet potatoes lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces. Transfer to the sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and the spice blend; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 22 to 24 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    2 Prepare the remaining ingredients

    Meanwhile, cut off and discard any stem ends from the green beans. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. In a bowl, combine the barbecue sauce and as much of the gochujang as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be.

    3 Cook the chicken

    Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken. Cook 6 to 7 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board.

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 165°F for chicken.

    Cook the green beans
    4 Cook the green beans

    In the pan of reserved fond, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the green beans in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add 2 tablespoons of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the green beans are tender and the water has cooked off. Turn off the heat. Stir in the vinegar until combined.
