A note about serious food allergies

Bruschetta, that mix of basil and tomato, is lovely everywhere, on bread or even just on a fork, but it's extra lovely on a pork chop, where the succulent meatiness melds like it was born to. We add to perfection with a bit of the sweet balsamic glaze, and a dash of heat with the red pepper flakes. Lovely here, there, and everywhere.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces.

    Core tomato and cut into 1/2" dice.

    Pat pork chops dry, and season both sides with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  2. 2

    Sear Pork Chops and Make Bruschetta

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add pork chops to hot pan. Cook until golden brown, 1-2 minutes per side.

    Remove from burner.

    While pork chops cook, mix tomato, pesto, and 1/4 tsp. salt in a mixing bowl until thoroughly combined.

  3. 3

    Finish the Pork Chops

    Transfer pork chops to prepared baking sheet. Top chops evenly with bruschetta, then Parmesan. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

    Roast in hot oven until Parmesan is a golden-brown and chops reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes.

    Pork thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner chop, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

    Remove from oven. Rest, 3 minutes.

    While chops roast, cook broccoli.

  4. 4

    Cook the Broccoli

    Return pan used to cook pork chops to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add broccoli, 1/4 cup water, a pinch of salt, and garlic salt to hot pan. Cover, and cook until water is almost completely evaporated, 5-6 minutes.

    Uncover, and stir occasionally until tender, 2-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Top evenly with shredded mozzarella. Let cheese melt, 3 minutes.
