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 cup hard cider (or 1/2 cup each apple cider and white wine)

1/2 cup pitted prunes, halved

1 cup heavy cream


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
