A note about serious food allergies

We consider ourselves a jaded bunch of culinarians in the Home Chef test kitchen; there isn't a flavor combination that hasn't hit our experienced palate. That was until Chef Jimmy Madla presented us with the ranch crust on this pork chop. We were lining up for seconds and thirds. You won't have that luxury, but once you order this meal, you'll have something almost as good: the recipe. No matter if you’re a newbie who just learned how to hold a knife, or a chef with twenty years experience; this meal both surprises and delights. 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.

Customize It Instructions

  • If using chicken breasts, follow same instructions as pork in Steps 1 and 3, searing until browned, 2-3 minutes per side, then roasting until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 10-12 minutes.

  • If using ribeye, follow same instructions as pork in Steps 1 and 3, searing until browned, 2-3 minutes per side, then roasting until steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes. Halve to serve.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Coarsely crush croutons.

    Trim ends off green beans.

    Core tomato and cut into 1/4" dice.

    Mince garlic.

    Pat pork chops dry, and season both sides with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  2. 2

    Make the Topping

    Combine softened cream cheese, sour cream, and seasoning blend in a mixing bowl. Set aside.

  3. 3

    Cook the Pork Chops

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add pork chops to hot pan and sear until golden brown, 2-3 minutes per side.

    Transfer pork chops to prepared baking sheet and spread on topping evenly. Top with crushed croutons. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

    Roast in hot oven until pork chops reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 6-8 minutes.

    Carefully remove from oven. Rest, 3 minutes.

    While pork chops roast, cook green beans and tomatoes.

  4. 4

    Cook the Green Beans and Tomatoes

    Return pan used to sear pork chops to medium heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Add green beans, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper to hot pan and stir occasionally until tender but still crisp, 6-8 minutes.

    If green beans need more time, add 2 Tbsp. water and stir occasionally, 1-3 minutes.

    Add tomato, garlic, and a pinch of salt. Stir occasionally until garlic is aromatic, 30-60 seconds.

    Remove from burner.
