This Italian-style pork dish brings good tidings of great joy… To start, lip-smackingly good chops are lightly dusted in flour to give them a golden hue after pan-searing. Next comes roasted potatoes crisped up to perfection, and a sumptuous garlic brown butter with a slightly sweet side thanks to white balsamic vinegar. A crisp, bitter endive and lettuce salad is mellowed by a sweet vinaigrette, salty Parmesan shavings and fresh parsley.

Preparation

Roast the potatoes
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Cut the potatoes lengthwise into ½ inch wedges. On a lined sheet pan, toss the potato wedges with a drizzle of oil; season with ½ the spice blend and S&P. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast in the oven, 20 to 25 minutes, flipping halfway through, until browned and tender when pierced with a fork.

Cook the pork
While the potatoes roast, in a medium pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the pork chops dry with paper towel; season with all but a pinch of the remaining spice blend and S&P. Place the flour in a shallow bowl and lightly dredge the pork chops, shaking off any excess flour. Add the coated pork chops* to the pan and cook, 3 to 5 minutes per side, until nicely browned, crispy and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and set aside in a warm spot, leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan. Reserve the pan.

Mise en place
While the pork cooks, trim off and discard the root end of the endive and separate the leaves; halve the leaves crosswise. Mince the garlic. Finely chop the parsley leaves and stems.

Make the garlic brown butter
In the reserved pan of fond, heat 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions) on medium. Add the garlic, ½ the white balsamic vinegar and 1 tbsp water (double for 4 portions). Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, until the butter foams and turns deep golden brown (be careful not to overcook, as the butter can burn easily). Add ⅓ of the parsley.

Make the salad
In a large bowl, combine the remaining white balsamic vinegar and 3 tbsp olive oil (double for 4 portions); season with the remaining spice blend and S&P. Stir to combine thoroughly. Add the lettuce, endive, ½ the remaining parsley and ⅔ of the Parmesan. Toss well.

Plate your dish
