Ingredients

2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh parsley

2 scallions, thinly sliced

1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped

1 heaping cup crumbled cornbread

1 large egg, lightly beaten

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

4 bone-in pork chops (1 inch thick; about 10 ounces each)

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 1/4 pounds green beans, trimmed

3 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

3/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Combine the parsley, scallions, jalapeno, cornbread, egg, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a bowl. Cut a deep 2-inch-wide pocket into the side of each pork chop. Stuff the cornbread mixture into the pockets.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the pork with salt and pepper. Add to the skillet in batches and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet; reserve the skillet. Bake until cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil; add the green beans and cook until crisp-tender, 3 minutes. Drain; return to the pot. Add 2 tablespoons butter. Season with salt and pepper; toss.
  4. Remove the pork from the baking sheet and pour the juices on the baking sheet into the skillet. Sprinkle the flour over the juices; cook over medium heat, whisking, 1 minute. Whisk in the broth, scraping up any browned bits, until smooth and thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat; whisk in the remaining 1 tablespoon butter and 3/4 teaspoon pepper and drizzle over the pork chops. Serve with the green beans.
