  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim ends off green beans. Peel and thinly slice shallot. Pat pork chops dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  2. 2

    Make the Topping

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat with 1 tsp. olive oil. Add shallot to hot pan and stir occasionally until golden brown, 8-10 minutes. Remove from burner. Transfer shallot to a mixing bowl and add cream cheese and half the Swiss cheese (reserve remaining for topping). Stir until combined, then set aside. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  3. 3

    Cook the Green Beans

    Return pan used to cook shallot to medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.
    Add green beans and cook undisturbed, 1 minute. Add ¼ cup water, onion salt, and a pinch of pepper. Cover, and cook until tender, 6-8 minutes. Uncover, and stir in butter and almonds until butter is melted. Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Start the Pork Chops

    Place a medium oven-safe non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and pork chops to hot pan. Cook undisturbed until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes per side. If pan becomes dry, add more oil if desired. Remove from burner. Pork chops will finish cooking in a later step.

  5. 5

    Finish the Pork Chops

    Top pork chops evenly with topping and remaining Swiss cheese. Place pan under hot broiler and broil until cheese is melted and bubbling and pork chops reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 2-3 minutes. Using an oven mitt, remove pan from broiler. Plate dish as pictured on front of card. Bon appétit!
