This hearty dinner, featuring pork chops and white beans, comes together in just half an hour and hits all the right flavor profiles. All you have to do is rub the pork chops with a garlic-rosemary mixture, then pan-sear in a skillet until the pork is cooked through, which takes only minutes to do. Using the same skillet, cook the beans with some garlic, balsamic vinegar, and radicchio. After the beans are heated through and the radicchio is softened slightly, your dinner is ready to go. It's the perfect weeknight dinner that you'll be craving after a long, chilly day.

Ingredients

garlic clove(s)

2 medium clove(s), minced

rosemary

2 tsp, chopped

Instructions

  1. Stir together 1 garlic clove, rosemary, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper in small bowl. Rub all over pork chops.
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add pork chops and cook, turning once, until instant-read thermometer inserted into sides of chops registers 145°F, about 8 minutes. Transfer to plate and keep warm.
  3. Heat remaining 1 teaspoon oil in same skillet. Add remaining 1 garlic clove and cook, stirring constantly until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add vinegar; then stir in beans. Cook, covered, until beans are heated through, about 3 minutes. Remove skillet from heat. Add radicchio, remaining ¼ teaspoon salt, and remaining ¼ teaspoon pepper and stir just until radicchio is slightly wilted. Stir any accumulated juices from pork chops into beans.
