Who likes beans? I was always a huge fan of green beans as a kid but I really didn't like many other types. However, as I got older I realized how delicious beans were and started putting them in a lot of different dishes. This week Sunday Supper is sharing all of our Beantastic recipes!
Pork chop night is never a favorite at our house. I have a hard time figuring out what to do with pork chops. I'm not sure why as I have a ton of ideas for other types of meat. I usually go for just pan frying the pork chops or baking them in the oven. So when I found a recipe for pork chops cooked with spinach and beans, basically a one pot meal, I was willing to try it.
The pork chops are sauteed in a pan with garlic and herbs until they are cooked through. Then they are removed to a plate while the beans and spinach are cooked. After the vegetables are cooked the pork chops are returned to the pan and everything is cooked together until hot.
I really ended up liking these pork chops. They had a great herb flavor and the balsamic vinegar adds a ton of flavor. The beans and spinach are refreshing in a bright lemon sauce. The meal pairs wonderfully together and is great served with a bit of crusty bread.

What a fabulous combination! I'm also always looking for new ways to cook pork chops, I would never have thought of adding beans! Thanks for the new idea.
What a great family meal!
A great combo of pork and beans without being "pork and beans". Yum!
