Top your pork chop with nothing but the best: tangy roasted tomato, Parmesan, and nutty almonds bring out the best in the meaty chops. Fresh broccoli on the side, with onion and garlic pepper, topped with sweet balsamic, also give the pork chop an assist. (Not that it needs it; pork chops are tops! Ah, poetry.)

Prepare the Ingredients
Finely chop tomatoes.
In a mixing bowl, combine tomatoes, garlic oil, cheese, and almonds. Set aside.
Cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces.
Pat pork chops dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.
Cook the Vegetables
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Add broccoli, onion, garlic pepper, a pinch of salt, and 1 Tbsp. water to hot pan. Cover, and cook until water is almost completely evaporated, 4-5 minutes.
Uncover, and stir occasionally until tender, 2-3 minutes.
Remove from burner.
While vegetables cook, sear pork chops.
Cook the Pork Chops
Place a large oven-safe non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add pork chops to hot pan and sear on one side until browned, 2-3 minutes.
Remove from burner. Carefully flip pork chops and top evenly with tomato mixture.
Place under hot broiler until pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 3-4 minutes.
Don't text and broil! Keep an eye on oven as pork chops may burn easily under broiler.
Carefully remove from broiler. Pan handle will be hot! Use an oven mitt. Rest, 3 minutes.
