This sauce will brighten your whole week. Made by cooking down demi-glace and a splash of apple cider vinegar with garlic and caramelized onions in the pan you just cooked the pork in, still coated in flavourful fond, it’s a stunning taste experience you’ll want to slather over everything. We suggest you spoon it over the tender boneless pork chops, but if you feel moved to spill it over onto the roasted carrots and crisp-tender French beans too, who are we to judge?

Preparation

Roast the carrots
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Peel and halve the carrots lengthwise. On a lined sheet pan, toss the carrots with a drizzle of oil; season with ⅓ of the spice blend and S&P. Arrange in a single, even layer. Roast in the oven, turning halfway through, 15 to 18 minutes, until tender when pierced with a fork.

Cook the pork
While the carrots roast, in a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the pork chops dry with paper towel; season with ½ the remaining spice blend and S&P. Add the pork chops* to the pan and cook, 4 to 6 minutes per side, partially covered, until nicely browned 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.

Cook the French beans
While the pork cooks, in a second large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the French beans to the pan and cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until beginning to soften. Add ½ the garlic and 1 tbsp water (double for 4 portions); season with the remaining spice blend and S&P. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until crisp-tender.

Make the sauce
In the reserved pan of fond, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the remaining garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant. Add the caramelized onions, vinegar, demi-glace and 2 tbsp water (double for 4 portions); season with S&P. Cook, scraping up the fond from the bottom of the pan, 2 to 3 minutes, until thickened. Off the heat, stir in 1 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions), until combined.
