with roasted Brussels sprouts and carrots

Active: 45 Total: 45

Our entire community loves any meal with miso butter, so we kept this one simple. The seared pork chops and vegetable mix on the side are a great combination for fall, but the savory miso butter really takes it all up a notch.

Make

  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.

  2. Toss Brussels sprouts and carrots with oil (portion for vegetables), mustard, ground coriander, and some salt and pepper. Spread out on a sheet pan and roast, shaking the pan halfway through cooking, until tender, 15 to 22 minutes.

  3. While vegetables are cooking, heat a grill pan or skillet with oil (portion for pork) over medium-high heat. Sear pork chops on both sides for 3 minutes. Lower heat to medium, cover with foil, and cook for another 3 to 6 minutes (depending on thickness), until they reach 145F / 63C degrees.

  4. Transfer pork chops to a cutting board. Let rest, covered, for 5 minutes.

  5. Squeeze lemon juice over vegetables.

  6. Spoon miso butter over warm pork chops. Serve vegetables on the side.

Miso butter is always a winner in our house! Would probably add a grain on the side next time, but overall a simple and filling fall meal!

Too much miso butter with this one. The richness was nicely offset by the vegetables, though.

The pork was so good with the miso butter! I cut the miso butter recipe in half because I knew my family wouldn't use that much butter. I also roasted some broccoli instead of sprouts and carrots.
