A key to the art of good cooking is doing the classics right, and this combination of tender pork chops and mash is done to perfection. You’ll serve the succulent meat over potatoes that aren’t just fluffy and silky—they’re boosted with butter and a generous sprinkling of Parmigiano Reggiano before mashing. On the side, add body and texture to your green salad with a handful of sautéed string peas—they’re a sweet and crisp addition that’s simply perfect drizzled with the fresh-mint vinaigrette.

Preparation

Make the mash
Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Peel and medium-dice the potatoes. Add the potatoes to the boiling water and cook, 14 to 16 minutes, until very tender when pierced with a fork. Reserving ½ cup cooking water (double for 4 portions), drain the potatoes; return to the pot. Off the heat, add 1 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions) and the Parmigiano Reggiano. Using a fork (or potato masher), mash the mixture, gradually adding the reserved cooking water until you achieve your desired consistency; season with S&P to taste. Set aside in a warm spot.

Sauté the string peas
While the potatoes cook, in a medium pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the string peas and cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until crisp-tender; season with S&P. Transfer to a plate to cool and reserve the pan.

Cook the pork chops
In the same pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the pork chops dry with paper towel; season with ¾ of the spice blend and S&P. Add the pork chops* to the pan and cook, 3 to 5 minutes per side, until nicely browned and cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board and set aside in a warm spot.

Mise en place
Pick the mint leaves off the stems; roughly chop the leaves. In a small bowl, make the vinaigrette by combining the white wine vinegar, ⅔ of the mint with 3 tbsp oil (double for 4 portions); season with the remaining spice blend and S&P to taste.

Finish & serve
In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, celery and cooled string peas. Drizzle as much vinaigrette as you’d like on the salad and toss well. Divide the mash between your plates. Top with the pork chops (slice beforehand if desired) and garnish with as much of the remaining mint as you’d like. Serve the salad on the side. Bon appétit!

*Health Canada recommends cooking pork to a minimum internal temperature of 71°C.
