Pork Chops with Roasted Beets and Tangerines

INGREDIENTS

  1. pound beets, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch wedges
  2. 4 Tablespoons olive oil
  3. kosher salt and black pepper
  4. tangerines- peeled and separated (or oranges)
  5. cups baby arugula (5 ounces)
  6. bone-in pork chops (1 inch thick; about 2 pounds total)
  7. 1 Tablespoon dried oregano
  8. 1 Tablespoon dried thyme

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat oven to 450° F. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the beets with 3 tablespoons of the oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Roast until beginning to soften, 13 to 15 minutes. Add the oranges to the baking sheet and roast, tossing once, until the beets and oranges are tender, 15 to 17 minutes more. Add the arugula and toss to combine.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Season the pork with the oregano, thyme, and ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper and cook until browned and cooked through, 7 to 9 minutes per side. Serve with the beets and oranges.

Enjoy!               Ephesians 6:11
