Prep/Cooking Time: 10 + 20 min | Easy | 4 Servings


Garlic butter

• 140 g butter, at room temperature

• ½ tbsp garlic powder

• 1 tbsp dried parsley

• 1 tbsp lemon juice

• salt and pepper

Pork chops

• 650 g pork chops

• 55 g butter, for frying

• 450 g fresh green beans

• salt and pepper


1. Mix butter, garlic, parsley and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

2. Make a few small cuts in the fat surrounding the chops to help them stay flat when frying. Season with salt and pepper.

3. In a large frying pan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the chops and fry for about 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown and thoroughly cooked through.

4. Remove the chops from the pan and keep warm.

5. Use the same skillet and add the beans. Salt and pepper to taste. Cook over medium-high heat until the beans have a vibrant color and are slightly softened but still a bit crunchy.

6. Serve the pork chops and beans together with a dollop of garlic butter melting on top.


Canned or frozen green beans may not be quite as crunchy, but still taste great and deliver easy nutrients straight from your freezer or pantry.
