    Toast the Pine Nuts

    Place pine nuts in a dry, large non-stick pan. Place pan over medium heat and toast, stirring often, until nuts are aromatic and light brown, 2-5 minutes. Add ⅓ the butter (reserve remaining for compound butter) to pan with pine nuts. Cook, stirring constantly, until butter browns, 30-45 seconds. Transfer to a small mixing bowl. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

    Sear the Pork Chops

    Return pan used to toast pine nuts to medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and pork chops to hot pan. Cook undisturbed until browned, 2-3 minutes. Transfer pork chops to prepared baking sheet, seared side up. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

    Finish Pork Chops and Make Compound Butter

    Roast until pork chops reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 6-8 minutes. While pork chops roast, add remaining butter, half the Parmesan (reserve remaining for vegetables), half the parsley (reserve remaining for garnish), and a pinch of salt and pepper to mixing bowl with pine nut-butter mixture. Thoroughly combine and set aside until ready to plate. While pork chops roast, cook vegetables.
