A note about serious food allergies
The humble pork chop is like a utility player in baseball: unassuming, versatile, and good with just about everything. This dish elevates it to MVP status with the pairing of the whole grain mustard vinaigrette, made with a coarse-textured mustard that is a rustic sibling of Dijon. The vinaigrette contains whole mustard seeds and packs a briny punch that pairs perfectly with pork.
We recommend pairing this pork chop with Francis Ford Coppola Director’s Cut Pinot Noir. Pinot noirs are traditionally paired with pork (especially grilled pork). The red ripe fruit of this pinot balances out the earthiness of this meal and highlights the seasonings on the meat.
Leave two thyme sprigs whole and stem remaining thyme.
Trim ends off green beans.
Pat pork chops dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper.
Roast the Potatoes
Place potatoes on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil, whole thyme sprigs, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.
Spread into a single layer and roast until potatoes are fork-tender, 18-22 minutes.
Discard thyme sprigs from cooked potatoes.
While potatoes roast, make vinaigrette.
Make the Vinaigrette
Combine apple cider vinegar, grainy mustard, brown sugar, and thyme leaves in a mixing bowl.
Slowly whisk in 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Season with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.
Grill the Pork Chops
Heat a grill or grill pan to medium heat.
Rub pork chops with 1 tsp. olive oil and add to hot grill. Cook until pork chops reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 5-6 minutes per side.
Remove pork chops from grill and spoon 1 Tbsp. vinaigrette (reserve remaining for garnish) over each pork chop. Tent with foil and rest at least 5 minutes. Keep grill or grill pan at medium heat.
While chops rest, grill green beans.
Grill the Green Beans
Toss green beans with 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper in another mixing bowl.
Place green beans on hot grill and flip occasionally until lightly charred, 4-5 minutes.
