We’re not afraid to rub it in: these pork chops are better than the rest. That’s because they literally are rubbed with a sweet and smoky blend of sugar and spices, which adds a caramelized crust and plenty of big flavors to the meat. The sides also give anyone with a sweet tooth reason to rejoice: tender, roasted sweet potatoes and an apple cranberry Brussels sprout hash complete this trifecta of candy-like flavors.

1

Wash and dry all produce. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Halve sweet potato, then cut into ½-inch-thick wedges. Toss on a baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil and pinch of salt and pepper. Roast in oven until lightly browned, 20-25 minutes, tossing halfway through.

2

Trim Brussels sprouts, then halve lengthwise. Thinly slice into shreds. Peel, core, and dice apple. Zest and halve lemon. In a shallow dish, combine blackening spice and 1 TBSP sugar.

3

Season pork all over with salt and pepper. Place in dish with rub and toss to coat pork evenly all over (you may have some rub left over).

4

Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook to desired doneness, 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from pan and set aside to rest 5 minutes.

5

While pork rests, heat a drizzle of olive oil in same pan over medium heat. Add Brussels sprouts and apple. Cook until Brussels sprouts and browned and apples are tender, 5-6 minutes, tossing occasionally. Stir in dried cranberries, a pinch of lemon zest, and a squeeze of lemon juice (to taste). Season with salt and pepper.

6

Thinly slice pork against the grain. Divide pork, sweet potato wedges, and Brussels sprout mixture between plates and serve.
