NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • Kosher salt
  • 12 ounces haricots verts or green beans, trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 4 boneless center-cut pork chops (1 inch thick, 6 to 7 ounces each)
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup hard cider (or 1/2 cup each apple cider and white wine)
  • 1/2 cup pitted prunes, halved
  • 1 cup heavy cream
Directions
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the haricots verts; cook until crisp-tender, 4 minutes. Drain and toss with 1 tablespoon each butter and parsley; season with salt and pepper. Cover to keep warm.

  • Meanwhile, season the pork with salt and pepper and rub with the thyme. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook until browned and just cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate; tent with foil and let rest.

  • Wipe out the skillet; add the remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Add the shallot and cook, stirring, until softened, about 1 minute. Add the apples and cook, stirring, until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add the cider and prunes; cook until reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Add the heavy cream and cook until thickened, 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons parsley. Serve the pork with the apple cream sauce and haricots verts.
