“A” is for apple... they taught all of us this in kindergarten, cementing in our young brains that apples come first. And why shouldn't they, especially the cider that comes from them, and especially when that cider glazes a scrumptious pork chop. We forget what “B” is for, but let's just say it's for Brussels, the perfect side with any pork chop. And “C”…. C is for the cider and the empty plate you'll “c” after you demolish this meal.

  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim bottoms off Brussels sprouts and halve vertically (quarter if larger than a ping-pong ball). Make slurry by combining apple cider, honey, and cornstarch in a mixing bowl until cornstarch is dissolved. Pat pork chops dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  • Step 2 - Roast the Brussels Sprouts

    Roast the Brussels Sprouts

    Place Brussels sprouts on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 Tbsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Massage oil into Brussels, then spread into a single layer. Roast until slightly charred and tender, 18-24 minutes. While Brussels sprouts roast, cook chops.

  • Step 3 - Toast the Almonds

    Toast the Almonds

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add sliced almonds to hot, dry pan and stir often until golden brown and fragrant, 1-3 minutes. Remove almonds to a plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  • Step 4 - Cook the Pork Chops
