Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |

  • Chicken 165° F |

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Remove leaves from cauliflower head, core, and cut into large, bite-sized florets. Halve and peel onion. Slice halves into thin strips. Mince garlic. Stem and mince parsley. Finely chop pistachios. Pat pork chops dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper.

  2. 2

    Sear the Cauliflower

    Heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add cauliflower florets to hot pan and stir often until lightly charred, 3-4 minutes. Remove from burner and transfer to one side of prepared baking sheet. Spread into a single layer on their side and roast 5 minutes. Cauliflower will finish cooking in a later step. Reserve pan and wipe clean.

  3. 3

    Cook Pork Chops and Finish Cauliflower

    Return pan used to sear cauliflower to medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and pork chop to hot pan. Sear undisturbed until browned, 3-4 minutes. Transfer empty side of baking sheet, seared side up. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean. Roast until cauliflower is tender and pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 6-8 minutes. While pork and cauliflower roast, cook onions.

  4. 4

    Caramelize the Onions

    Return pan used to sear chops to medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and onions to hot pan. Stir often until caramelized, 6-8 minutes. Remove pan from burner.

  5. 5

    Crust the Pork

    Spread goat cheese on pork chops. Sprinkle with pistachios and remaining parsley. Rest 3-5 minutes.

  6. 6

    Finish the Dish

    Place vegetables and pork chop on a plate.
