A note about serious food allergies

This meal gives you pot roast without the pot roast. What? Yes, pot roast flavors and seasonings match delightfully to the noble pork chop, and the root vegetables bring the hearty warmth. Top some (or all!) of it with a rich pearl onion demi and you'll see how amazing a pot roast without the pot roast can be. Tip: To peel the carrot with less effort, lay it down on your cutting board peel one half, rolling it as you peel. (Be sure to peel in a motion away from you!)

    Peel and cut potatoes into evenly-sized large chunks. Bring a medium pot with potato chunks covered by water to a boil. Cook until fork-tender, 14-18 minutes.

    Reserve 1 cup potato cooking water. Drain potatoes in a colander.

    Return potatoes to pot and add sour cream, half the butter (reserve remaining for sauce), white portions of green onions (prepared in a later step), half the seasoning blend (reserve remaining for carrots), and 2 Tbsp. reserved potato cooking water. Mash until smooth. If too dry, add additional potato cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Cover and set aside.

    While potatoes boil, roast carrot.

    Roast the Carrot

    Peel, trim, and cut carrot into 1/4" slices on an angle.

    Place carrot slices on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil and remaining seasoning blend.

    Spread into a single layer and roast until fork-tender, 15-17 minutes.

    Toss roasted carrot with thyme (prepared in a later step). Baking sheet will be hot! Use a utensil.

    While carrot roasts, prepare ingredients.
