I can't believe it is butter! (Sorry, we're groaning at ourselves for that one.) But really, we can't believe this delicious compound butter, with tender roasted garlic and nutty pecorino, goes so well with a bone-in pork chop. We also can't believe those are carrots and peas underneath the ferociously delicious glaze of hot honey. All this comes together for a meal that, we believe, you'll thoroughly enjoy.

You Will Need
Medium Non-Stick Pan
Before You Cook
Roast the Garlic
Halve garlic. Place garlic halves on a piece of foil and form a foil pouch around garlic.
Place directly on oven rack, opening side up, and roast in hot oven until garlic is tender, 20-22 minutes.
While garlic roasts, prepare ingredients.
Prepare the Ingredients
Mince parsley, both stems and leaves.
Peel, trim, and cut carrot into ½" pieces.
Pat pork chops dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.
Make Butter and Sear Pork Chops
Combine butter, parsley, pecorino, roasted garlic, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Refrigerate until ready to plate.
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add pork chops to hot pan and sear undisturbed until golden brown, 2-3 minutes.
Transfer pork chops to prepared baking sheet, seared side up.
Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.
Finish the Pork Chops
Roast in hot oven until pork chops reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 8-10 minutes.
While pork chops roast, cook vegetables.
Cook Peas and Carrots and Finish Dish
Return pan used to sear pork chops to medium heat. Add carrot to hot pan and cook undisturbed until lightly charred, 4-5 minutes.
Add peas and honey to pan and stir occasionally until vegetables are coated, 3-4 minutes.
Season with ¼ tsp. salt and half the red pepper flakes. Taste, and add remaining red pepper flakes if desired.
