Honey-Butter BBQ Pork Chops
with Mashed Sweet Potatoes & Lemony Green Beans
The easiest way to add tons of restaurant-level flair to a dish with almost no effort? Two words: compound butter. For chefs, this ingredient is the ultimate secret weapon to making can’t-put-your-fork-down meals. Here, we’ve mixed softened butter with honey and salt. It’s dolloped onto warm, BBQ-spiced pork chops. The sweet, savory, slightly smoky combo is guaranteed to delight. Once you try a bite, don’t be surprised when you find yourself making excuses to whip it up again!

Not included in your delivery
• Wash and dry produce (except green beans). • Peel and dice sweet potatoes into ½-inch pieces. Zest and quarter lemon.
• Place sweet potatoes in a medium pot with enough salted water to cover by 2 inches. Cover, bring to a boil, and cook until tender, 15-20 minutes. • Drain and return sweet potatoes to pot. Add sour cream and ½ TBSP butter (1 TBSP for 4 servings); mash until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. • Keep covered off heat until ready to serve.
• While sweet potatoes cook, place 2 TBSP butter (4 TBSP for 4 servings) in a small microwave-safe bowl; microwave until softened, 10-15 seconds. • Stir in honey and a pinch of salt.
• Pat pork* dry with paper towels. Season lightly with salt and pepper, then rub all over with BBQ Seasoning. • Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook until browned and cooked through, 4-6 minutes per side.
• While pork cooks, pierce green bean bag with a fork; place bag on a plate. Microwave until tender, 1-2 minutes. TIP: No microwave? No problem! Steam green beans in a small pot with a splash of water until just tender, 5-7 minutes. • Carefully transfer green beans to a medium bowl and toss with lemon zest, ½ TBSP butter, a squeeze of lemon juice, and a big pinch of salt and pepper.
• Divide mashed sweet potatoes and green beans between plates. Top mashed sweet potatoes with pork. Dollop pork with honey butter and sprinkle with chili flakes if desired. • Serve with remaining lemon wedges on the side.
Pork is fully cooked when internal temperature reaches 145º.
