If you’re craving something that’s good and hearty, this recipe has got you covered. Pork chops are rubbed with cinnamon and smoked paprika, which bring a layer of warm aromatics to the meat. They’re then roasted and drizzled with a cherry jam sauce that adds sweetness to all that savory. The mashed potatoes on the side stay creamy and classic, but there’s also a crisp apple and carrot slaw to keep things snappy.


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

Preheat and Prep
Preheat and Prep

Adjust rack to middle position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. Trim, then thinly slice scallions. In a medium bowl, stir together mayonnaise and 4 tsp vinegar (we’ll use more in step 4). Add carrots to bowl and toss to coat, then set aside.

Cook Potatoes
Cook Potatoes

Cut potatoes into 1-inch pieces and place in a medium pot with enough water to cover by 1 inch. Cover pot and bring to a boil, then lower heat to medium. Cook until easily pierced by a knife, about 15 minutes. Scoop out and reserve ¼ cup cooking water, then drain potatoes and return to pot.

Roast Pork
Roast Pork

Rub pork with a drizzle of olive oil. Season all over with plenty of salt and pepper. Set aside ¼ tsp cinnamon paprika spice in a small microwave-safe bowl, then rub pork all over with remaining spice. Place pork on a baking sheet and roast to desired doneness, 13-15 minutes. Let rest 5 minutes after removing from oven.

To bowl with reserved spice, add 3 TBSP jam, ½ tsp water, and ½ tsp vinegar (you’ll have leftover jam and vinegar). Stir to combine. Microwave on high until warm, about 45 seconds. Add ½ TBSP butter and stir to melt. Season with salt and pepper.
