This One Pan Pork Chops with Red Potatoes and Green Beans brings back childhood memories of my mom making pork chops on a regular basis but with a little twist!

If you visited Chocolate Slopes a few weeks ago you’ll know that I had the opportunity to get an inside look into the pork industry. I was also inspired to make another simple slow cooker recipe that was a huge hit in my house – this Slow Cooker Apple Cider Barbecue Pulled Pork recipe. And although I’m a huge fan of pulled pork recipes I decided to branch out a bit and try a boneless pork loin recipe today while still keeping it fairly simple.
The second half of the pork tour was focused on creating pork recipes using a variety of different cuts of the pork. Unfortunately I missed out on this part due to another work obligation but still have lots of good info for you. I also had a unique opportunity to interview a dietitian who works for the National Pork Board – catch her interview on Chocolate Slopes later this week!
Did you know there are 7 lean cuts of pork available? A good rule of thumb is to just look on the label for the term “loin” and you’ll be eating a lean or extra lean cut of pork. Pork has several important nutrients and is recognized by the American Heart Association as a “heart-healthy” food. There are also at least 41 cuts or pieces of pork you can use to cook with so I guess it’s time to get cooking!
