Pork Chops and Pears with Mustard Greens

Boneless pork ribs cooked on the stove with sweet D’Anjou pear in fresh orange juice and sage sauce. Stir-fried broccoli with garlic and crushed red peppers is a great alternative to spinach for their rich, bright flavor. The sweetness of the pear balances the spiciness of the greens, but cut back on red peppers if you want a softer meal.

How to cook minced pork on the stove |

To ensure even cooking, do not cook pork chops from the refrigerator immediately. Pull them out for 20-30 minutes before marinating the ribs with salt and pepper to make the meat juicy and flavorful.

Boneless pork ribs cook pretty quickly, so be sure to watch them when they’re almost done. To check for maturity, hold the piece firmly with the clamps to stabilize and insert a thermometer reading immediately into the face of the piece up to the center. The temperature must register 145 ° F.


  • Swap mustard greens for spinach or kale.
  • If you are not a fan of heat, reduce the crushed red pepper to 1/4 teaspoon.
  • For an extra nutty flavor, sprinkle green vegetables with a little vinegar before serving. Malt, cider, or balsamic vinegar are all good options.
