A note about serious food allergies

“Apple-bacon-shallot jam” sounds like something the Dead came up with in '74. (During the Wall of Sound tours… sorry, hippie tangent there.) But it's not a 20-minute noodle session; it's a terrific melding of some of the best culinary forces. Apple butter and shallot come together to form a rich, buttery sweetness and a few onion notes. And the bacon… well, it brings home the bacon. Slather this on a succulent pork chop and what a long, delicious trip this has been. Tip: Line 'em up! The best way to remove the ends of green beans is to line them up evenly, then remove them with one cut.

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

  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |

Customize It Instructions

  • If using chicken breasts, follow same instructions as pork in Steps 1 and 3, cooking until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side.

  • If using NY strip steak, follow same instructions as pork in Steps 1 and 3, cooking until strip steak reaches a minimum internal temperature, 9-11 minutes per side. Halve to serve.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut red bell pepper into ¼" strips. Trim ends off green beans. Peel and halve shallot. Slice thinly. Mince garlic. Pat pork chops dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  2. 2

    Cook the Vegetables

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Add green beans, red bell pepper, garlic, and a pinch of salt and pepper to hot pan. Stir often until green beans and red bell pepper are lightly browned, 3-4 minutes. Add garlic salt and ⅓ cup water. Cover, and cook until green beans are tender, 4-5 minutes. Stir in plain butter until melted. Remove from burner. While vegetables cook, sear pork chops.

  3. 3

    Cook the Pork Chops

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add pork chops to hot pan and cook until golden brown and pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side. Transfer pork chops to a plate and tent with foil. Keep pan over burner and increase heat to medium-high.
