    Boneless pork chops cook on the stove with sweet DAnjou pears in a fresh orange juice and sage sauce. The sauteed mustard greens with garlic and crushed red pepper are a nice alternative to spinach with their bold, bright taste. The pears sweetness balances out the greens spiciness, but feel free to reduce the red pepper if youd like a milder meal. For more savory pear recipes, try this Kale and Butternut Squash Salad with Pears and Almonds and Stuffed Chicken with Prosciutto, Pears, and Brie.,Alt=,If you prefer to use other greens, spinach or chard can be used here instead.,Swap out mustard greens for baby spinach or kale.,If you arent a fan of heat, reduce the crushed red pepper to 1/4 teaspoon.,For more piquant flavor, sprinkle the greens with a little vinegar before serving. Malt, apple cider, or balsamic vinegar are all good choices.,Pork Chops with Mushrooms and Shallots,Pork Chops with Dijon Herb Sauce,Crispy Breaded Pork Chops in the Air Fryer,Stuffed Baked Pork Chops with Prosciutto and Mozzarella,Pork Chops and Applesauce
