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 add a welcome touch of sweetness to the mildness of the meat. On the side, we’ve got sugar snap peas and a mash that tucks cauliflower into the potatoes—it’s so good, no one will notice that you snuck in some extra veggies!


Produced in a facility that processes milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybean.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. Dice potatoes into 1-inch cubes. (TIP: For a smoother mash, peel potatoes first.) Place in a large pot with enough salted water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, 12-15 minutes. Drain and return to pot. Keep covered until ready to mash.

Meanwhile, pat pork dry with paper towels; season all over with salt, pepper, and ½ tsp thyme (we sent more). 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. Turn off heat; transfer to a plate. Wipe out pan.
