A juicy bone-in pork chop always goes well with a delicious herb rub. The chop is being paired with a roasted acorn squash and sautéed asparagus with shallots. Squash is a staple throughout these cold winter months because it is one of the few crops that continue to be harvested and available. Acorn squash, also called pepper squash, or Des Moines squash, is a winter squash with distinctive longitudinal ridges and sweet, yellow-orange flesh. Although considered a winter squash, acorn squash belongs to the same species as all summer squashes. The sweetness of this squash goes well with the subtle herb rub and natural flavor of the chop.
