Roasted Pork Chops and Garlic Green Beans
Garlic-infused olive oil should be a staple in any kitchen. It certainly is in mine. It comes in handy in recipes like this where the garlic acts as more of a side than a seasoning. After roasting in the oven, the garlic cloves turn into little pillows of creamy, garlicky lusciousness. You can eat them bite by bite, or make a Roasted Garlic Cream to add to the green bean mixture.
4 tablespoons garlic infused olive oil, divided
4 thick-cut boneless free-range pork chops
2 cups trimmed green beans
10 garlic cloves, peeled
½ teaspoon garlic salt
5 fresh thyme sprigs
½ cup grated organic Parmesan cheese
½ cup freshly shaved organic Parmesan cheese
Directions Preparing:10 minCooking:30 min
Step 1Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Step 2In a large cast iron or ovenproof skillet, swirl 2 tablespoons of garlic-infused olive oil to coat the bottom. Add the pork chops. In between the chops and around the edges, distribute the green beans and garlic cloves. Drizzle the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil over the top of the meat and vegetables. Sprinkle with the garlic salt and place the thyme sprigs on top. Then sprinkle with the grated and shaved Parmesan cheese.
Step 3Bake until cooked through, about 30 minutes. Serve immediately.
