Pork has a way of embracing fruity flavors like no other protein. In this recipe, we’re smothering it in chunks of tender, saucy apple, which adds a welcome touch of sweetness. On the side, we’ve got sugar snap peas and a potato cauliflower mash. It’s so good, no one will notice that you snuck in some extra veggies!

Wash and dry all produce. Adjust rack to upper position and preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut potatoes into 1-inch cubes. Place potatoes and cauliflower in a large pot with a pinch of salt and enough water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil and cook until very tender, 12-15 minutes. Drain and return to pot.
Meanwhile, heat a large drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Season pork all over with salt, pepper, and thyme. Add to pan and cook, turning occasionally, until browned all over, 4-8 minutes.
Trim any tough ends or strings from snap peas. Once pork has browned, transfer to a baking sheet, placing toward one side. Add snap peas to other side and toss with a large drizzle of oil and pinch of salt and pepper. Roast in oven until pork reaches desired doneness and snap peas are tender, 10-12 minutes.
Halve and remove core from apples, then chop into ½-inch cubes. Melt 2 TBSP butter with a large drizzle of oil in pan used for pork over medium heat. Add apples and cook, tossing occasionally, until golden, 5-7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in stock concentrates and ½ cup water. Increase heat to medium high and cook until apples are tender, 3-4 minutes.
Add 2 TBSP butter to pot with potatoes and cauliflower. (TIP: If potatoes and cauliflower have cooled, reheat briefly over low heat.) Toss to melt butter. Mash with a potato masher or fork until mostly smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
Slice pork crosswise into medallions. Divide cauliflower mash and snap peas between plates, then top with pork. Spoon pan sauce over pork, making sure to include apple pieces.
