Serves: 2

Ingredients

  • 12 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 cloves garlic, halved
  • 1⁄2 tablespoon parsley, minced
  • 2 carrots, cut into ½” pieces
  • 2 bone-in pork chops
  • 1⁄2 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 5 ounces peas
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Olive oil
  • Salt, to taste
  • Ground pepper, to taste

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Prepare baking sheet with foil and cooking spray.
  • Using foil, form pouch around garlic. Place directly on oven rack, open-side up; roast until garlic is tender, 20 minutes.
  • Season pork with ¼ teaspoon salt and pinch of pepper. In a mixing bowl, combine butter, parsley, Parmesan cheese, roasted garlic, pinch of salt and ground pepper. Refrigerate until ready to plate.
  • In non-stick pan over medium-high heat, heat 1 teaspoon olive oil. Sear pork chops until golden brown, 3 minutes. Transfer to prepared baking sheet, seared side up. Reserve pan (no need to wipe clean).
  • Roast until pork chops reach a minimum internal temperature of 145°F, 8-10 minutes.
  • Return pan to medium heat. Cook carrots undisturbed until lightly charred, 5 minutes. Add peas and honey to pan; stir occasionally until vegetables are coated, 3 minutes. Season with ¼ teaspoon salt and red pepper flakes to taste.
  • To serve, garnish pork chops with parsley-garlic butter.
