  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking dish.
  2. Fill a saucepan with lightly salted water, and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, add the green beans, and return to a boil. Cook uncovered until the green beans are crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain the beans, reserving 2/3 cup of the cooking liquid. Spread the beans into the greased baking dish.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops, and cook until golden brown on each side, about 3 minutes per side. Season the browned pork chops with salt, pepper, sage, and garlic, then arrange over the green beans.
  4. Pour the reserved bean-cooking liquid in the skillet and stir the browned bits until dissolved. Pour over the pork chops. Place the tomato slices over the pork chops, and cover each with a slice of Cheddar cheese.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese melts and is golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the pork chops should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Very yummy. I noticed a few people asking why reserve the green bean juice, saying they didn't see what to do with it. The recipe states: "Boil the reserved cooking liquid in the skillet and s...

I did not care for this recipe. The beans were overly salty and the pork chops were tough. If I ever were to make this again (and I might as I have all of the other ingredients in the garden thi...

Very tasty. This is a good way to use up the garden produce. I added a Vidalia Onion to mine. I will go heavier on the cheese next time.

This was delicious!!! The next time I make it I will only boil the green beans for about a minute, as they were over cooked!

I have the same question as another reviewer. Why save the bean juice? I used it to deglaze the pork chop skillet and poured in on the chops in the baking dish.Good. The recipe is a keeper.

added a layer of spinach on the tomatoes, used mexican cheese instead and added sauteed onions to the green beans...really good!

I covered the 8x8 dish with foil before putting in the oven. I used thick chops. They were very juicy.

Made this tonight. It was pretty good. Added sautéed onions and garlic to the green beans and made it with white rice to soak up the extra juices. Next time, maybe I'll add in sautéed mushrooms ...

Beans could have been a little more flavorful, and perhaps a little less garlic on the chops (maybe mix garlic in with beans as well?)

Super easy and yummy. Didn't have sage so I used dried rosemary instead and it works. I also used a splash of cooking sherry to scrape up all the brown bits from the pork chops. But just a littl...
