    1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Halve cherry tomatoes. Trim ends off green beans. Trim and thinly slice green onions. Combine blue cheese, green onions (reserve a pinch for garnish), and a pinch of pepper in a mixing bowl. Pat pork chops dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

    2

    Sear the Pork Chops

    Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add pork chops to hot pan and cook until a caramelized crust begins to form, 2-3 minutes per side. Remove pan from burner and transfer chops to prepared baking sheet. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  • Step 3 - Crust and Roast the Pork Chops
    3

    Crust and Roast the Pork Chops

    Top pork chops with blue cheese-green onion mixture, pressing lightly to adhere crust on chops. Roast until crust has melted and chops reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 7-9 minutes. Rest chops 5 minutes before serving. While chops roast, toast almonds.

  • Step 4 - Toast the Almonds

    Toast the Almonds

    Place slivered almonds in same pan used for searing chops (no oil needed) over medium heat. Stir often, toasting almonds evenly, until almonds are golden brown and aromatic, 2-4 minutes. Immediately, remove pan from burner and transfer almonds to a plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  • Step 5 - Prepare the Almondine

    Prepare the Almondine

    Return pan used to toast almonds to medium heat. Add butter, green beans, and ¼ cup water to hot pan. Cover and cook until beans are bright green, 3-4 minutes. Remove cover, add tomatoes, and cook until beans are tender and tomatoes are warmed through, 3-4 minutes. Add toasted almonds and season with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Remove from burner.
