A note about serious food allergies

Pork and apple go together like nothing else, the sweet and the savory doing a tango on the tongue tips that tantalizes and, well, tastes great. Not just the apple butter: the gooey, salty cheese on top of the succulent pork makes both flavors sing as well.

  • If using chicken breasts, in Step 2, roast vegetables, 6-8 minutes.

Add toppings and roast until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 10-12 minutes.

  • If using salmon, pat dry and season flesh side with a pinch of salt and pepper. Follow same instructions as pork in Step 3, searing, skin side up, in hot pan, 2-4 minutes. Transfer to baking sheet, seared side up, add toppings, and roast until salmon reaches a minimum internal temperature, 7-10 minutes.

  • If using NY strip steak, in Step 2, roast vegetables, 6-8 minutes. Follow same instructions as pork in Steps 1 and 3, searing on one side until browned, 2-3 minutes, then transferring, seared side up, to baking sheet.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim stems off Brussels sprouts and halve vertically (quarter if larger than a ping-pong ball). Peel and halve shallot. Slice thinly. Pat pork chops dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and garlic pepper.

  2. 2

    Roast the Vegetables

    Place Brussels sprouts and shallot on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 Tbsp. olive oil, seasoned salt, and a pinch of pepper. Massage oil, seasoned salt, and pepper into vegetables. Spread into a single layer and place Brussels sprouts cut side down. Roast in hot oven until tender and beginning to brown, 8-10 minutes. While vegetables roast, sear pork chops.

  3. 3

    Sear the Pork Chops

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and pork chops to hot pan. Cook undisturbed until browned, 2-3 minutes on one side. After 8-10 minutes, carefully, remove baking sheet from oven and push vegetables to one side. Baking sheet will be hot! Use a utensil.
    Transfer pork chops to empty side of baking sheet, seared side up. Top evenly with apple butter, then cheese. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  4. 4

    Finish the Vegetables and Pork Chops

    Roast vegetables and pork chops in hot oven until Brussels sprouts are golden brown and fork-tender and pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 8-10 minutes. Carefully remove from oven. Rest, 3 minutes. While vegetables and pork roast, make cider glaze.

  5. 5

    Make Cider Glaze and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to sear pork to medium-high heat. Add apple cider vinegar and honey to hot pan. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir occasionally until liquid is reduced by half, 2-3 minutes. Remove from burner. Stir in butter and a pinch of salt and pepper until completely combined. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping pork chops with cider glaze. Bon appétit!
