Crispy Pork Chops with Spiralized Sweet Potatoes and Charred Brussels Sprouts

The secret to these juicy, crispy pork chops? To get perfectly crispy pork chops, you need a great searing process. Typically, you’re supposed to let meat sit and not move it, but I love this method because of the crispy crust.

My other tip for a crispy, tasty, and salty pork chop crust is to generously season with salt and pepper before cooking. It takes more time at the stove, but as your pork chop turns golden brown, you’ll be a happy and proud chef.

What I love about these pork chops is that their delicious juices and fat release in the oil they’re cooked in and create the mixture that the brussels sprouts are cooked in, infusing those flavors into the sprouts. The sprouts char from the hot pork chop juice and are simply seasoned with salt and pepper.

This is a simple, easy, and quick gluten free meal that will make your weeknight rotation.

This looks like a perfectly balanced and delicious meal! And though I know it's all about the spiralized sweet potato, I am ALL about that pork chop. Ha! That crust, though! *droooool* I'm definitely going to use your / The Kitchn's cooking method next time I make chops.
Meaghan says:
It's a total winner! You must give it a try.
Lydia says:
Looks really good and I’d like to try but I have a question about the time. If I did 3 min per side and then 5 min per side and 3 more times of 5 minutes per side it would total 46 minutes, 23 min per side. Am I reading it wrong? This would take longer than the total cooking time at the top of the recipe. If I’m reading it wrong, Is it 3,3 5,5,5,5= 26 minutes? Thank for help, Lydia
Terry Miller says:
Just made this menu tonight and it was delicious! Probably only cooked the pork chops a total of 25-30 minutes before they were cooked through at at 160 degrees. It doesn't how much olive oil to use for the sweet potato noodles in the ingredients list, but I used about a tablespoon and they were so good!! Delicious meal, if a little messy on the stove.

Thank you for your notes! We're so happy you liked it.
