  • Servings: 4

Source: Everyday Food, May 2010


  • 4 bone-in pork rib chops (2 1/4 pounds total and 3/4 to 1 inch thick)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 pound green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-inch lengths
  • 1 bunch scallions, whites thinly sliced and green parts cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled, thinly sliced, and roughly chopped
  • 1 jalapeno (optional), thinly sliced crosswise
  • 6 1/2 ounces roasted yellow or red peppers (about 4), drained, rinsed, and diced medium


  1. Heat a large skillet over high. Pat pork chops dry and season generously on both sides with salt and pepper. Add 1 tablespoon oil to skillet and swirl to coat. Add chops and cook until golden brown and meat has some give when pressed with your finger, about 4 minutes per side, flipping once. Transfer chops to a serving platter, cover loosely with foil, and let rest 5 minutes.

  2. Wipe skillet clean and heat over medium-high. Add 2 tablespoons oil, green beans, scallion whites, and ginger. Cook, stirring occasionally, until ginger and scallions are soft and green beans are crisp-tender, 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add jalapeno (if using) and scallion greens and cook, stirring frequently, 1 minute. Add peppers and cook until warmed through; season with salt and pepper. To serve, top chops with vegetables.

    I was disappointed by almost the entire recipe honestly. The prep work was easy as I roasted my own peppers over the gas stove flame and there was minimal chopping. The best part was the simple preparation of the pork chops. I will definitely prepare this way for other recipes. The vegetable mix was missing sauce or flavor in a bad way. The ginger and scallions alone did not cut it for a flavor wow. Either needs to be modified or put on shelf.

    Pork chops were tender and juicy prepared in this simple recipe. The green beans were a little too crispy after only 3 minutes for my family's taste but we definitely enjoyed the layers of flavor. The ginger has a really nice profile after the roasted peppers. I added garlic, because I add garlic to most stuff. I poured some of the au just from the platter back into the pan hoping to cook the beans more. Served with blueberry muffins. Start to finish: 25 minutes.
