Roasted Pork Chops with Peaches and Green Beans

Written by Becky

I’m all about the one-dish dinner these days. This recipe for Roasted Pork Chops with Peaches and Green Beans is so simple yet brilliantly flavorful with all of the best tastes of summer. A flavorful meal is all about getting good ingredients and in this meal I have fabulous local pork from Christiansen Family Farm, fresh local peaches and green beans, and a splash of good quality white wine vinegar. And the best part, dinner is ready in 20 minutes.

Roasted Pork Chops with Peaches and Green Beans

Speaking of one pot meals, this week I’m cooking a big meal for all of the family on my dad’s side. Luckily, we don’t have that huge of a family so it will be about 25 people. I’m honored to be able to cook a meal for them. Josh and I weighed back and forth on what to make, something that we’d both be excited about and that the family would enjoy. We landed on paella, a Spanish dish of seasoned rice, seafood, chicken and vegetables.  And of course to go with our paella we’re making a big jug of sangria. It should be a great evening. I’ll report back when we return.

Roasted Pork Chops with Peaches and Green Beans

Right now, you can find Christiansen Family Farm pork and perfectly ripe peaches at Liberty Heights Fresh! Plus they have a huge wall of balsamics and vinegars to choose from, so many it’s hard to pick just one! For this recipe we found that a good white wine vinegar does just the trick to boost the natural flavors.

Roasted Pork Chops with Peaches and Green Beans

A quick and easy recipe for pork chops using summer fresh peaches and green beans.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup couscous
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh parsley chopped (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 bone-in pork chops (3/4 inch thick; about 2 pounds total)
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 3 peaches, cut into wedges
  • 1 cup green beans
  • 1 small red onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 1/3 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • handful of fresh basil leaves

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 400° F. Bring 1 1/4 cups water to a boil then add couscous, cover and remove from heat. After 5 minutes fluff with a fork and toss with parsley.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Season the pork with ½ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes and cook until browned, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
  4. Add the green beans, peaches, onion, vinegar, honey and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper to the skillet and cook, tossing, for 1 minute.
  5. Return the pork (and any accumulated juices) to the skillet. Transfer to oven and roast until the pork is cooked through and the peaches are tender, about 10 minutes.
  6. Sprinkle the pork and peaches with basil and serve over couscous with a good spoonful of the pan juices.

  1. That is who we buy our pork from! We buy 1/2 pig at a time and keep it in our chest freezer. They have been so great to work with and we feel so good about buying from them. And WOW, is it delicious… I never really cared much for pork before we started buying from them.

  2. I haven’t been on your blog for a while, but a post from Liberty Heights Fresh pulled me in (Healthy Recipes for New Moms…). Since my oldest daughter just had a baby yesterday I thought I would check out the link. Looks like some good ideas to pass on to her. Then I was scrolling through and this recipe looks like a lot of fun. I have peaches sitting on the table at home and probably some late-season green beans in the garden, so I may be trying this tonight! Thanks for the ideas!
