Lemon Garlic Pork Chops with Parmesan Tater Tots

1 pound frozen Tater Tots
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
12 ounces green beans, trimmed and halved
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 3/4 -inch-thick boneless center-cut pork chops (1 1/2 pounds)
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth


Bake the Tater Tots as the label directs. Transfer to a bowl; add the parmesan, season with salt and pepper and toss. Set aside. Meanwhile, bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add the green beans and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and transfer to a medium bowl; toss with 1 tablespoon butter, the lemon zest, and salt and pepper to taste. Cover to keep warm. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper; add to the skillet and cook until browned, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and let rest. Add the garlic to the skillet and cook until lightly browned, about 30 seconds. Add the lemon juice and chicken broth; cook until reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Swirl in the remaining 3 tablespoons butter. Spoon the pan sauce over the pork chops and serve with the Tater Tots and green beans. Photograph by Antonis Achilleos
