This recipe is all about having it both ways. First, you’ve got pork in two of its tastiest forms: as a juicy, bone-in chop and as salty, crispy cubes of pancetta. Then there are the Brussels sprouts, with some roasted in the oven until they’re tender and crisp and others broken down into individual petals to create a delicate leafy garnish. The one thing that ties them all together, though, is the bed of nutty farro, which soaks up all the rich flavors happening above.
