With a long winter of snow and sub-zero temps we all need a little break and this recipe provides just that plus some comfort. This is a simple recipe to make taking just under 40 minutes and a basic list of ingredients you most likely already have stocked in your pantry!


  • 6 tablespoons olive oil

  • divided juice of 1 lemon (about 3 tbsp) 

  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh thyme 

  • 1 tbsp plus 1 tsp smoked paprika 

  • 4 cloves garlic, grated or pasted 

  • salt and pepper 

  • 4 bone-in pork chops (each 1-in thick) 

  • 1 12-oz bag trimmed green beans

  • 4 medium yukon gold potatoes (about 1 1/2 lbs), cut into 1/2-in wedges  


  1. Preheat oven to 475°F.

  2. In a large bowl, mix 3 tablespoons olive oil, the lemon juice, thyme, paprika and garlic; season with salt and pepper.
