Smoked Pork Chops with Cherry Tomatoes and White Beans

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 3 cups cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 1 garlic clove, smashed
  • 4 smoked pork chops (500g)
  • 2 x 400g cans cannellini or other white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons green-olive paste
  • 3/4 teaspoon thyme leaves

Method

Heat 3 tablespoons oil in a 10-inch heavy skillet over medium-high heat until it shimmers, then cook tomatoes and garlic, lightly pressing tomatoes occasionally, until tomatoes begin to burst, about 5 minutes.

While tomatoes cook, heat remaining tablespoon oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium-high heat until it shimmers, then brown pork chops on both sides, about 4 minutes total.

Stir beans into tomatoes along with olive paste, thyme, and salt and pepper to taste and cook, covered, 2 minutes. Add chops and cook, covered, until heated through, about 2 minutes.
Serves: 4
