Honey Mustard Pork Chops

with roasted potatoes and green beans

Between hockey, school and other extracurriculars it can be tough to get the whole family together in one place at one time. Preparing meals in advance and eating as a group may sound tough but it doesn’t have to be.

HelloFresh solves that problem by creating stress-free dinners that take less than 40 minutes to cook. They bring healthy, easy-to-make meals to the kitchens of busy hockey families that come with step-by-step instructions. Knowing what you'll be making and how long it will take is information valuable to anybody as busy as a hockey parent.

Because the pork chops are grilled you can avoid the excess fat that comes when it is fried. They are high in protein which is important in building and repairing muscles. The potatoes are low in calories and high in Vitamin C while the green beans are a source of fiber, potassium, protein, iron, and zinc. Help build good nutritional habits for your entire family.

Giving kids the responsibility of helping to make the meals will encourage them to see the process through and enjoy the meal even more. It takes just 30 minutes of cook time and six easy steps to enjoy the Honey Mustard Pork Chops.


Wash and dry all produce. Strip 1 tbsp thyme leaves (dbl for 4 ppl) off the stems. Cut the potatoes in half (or into quarters if they are larger). On a baking sheet, toss the potatoes and half the thyme with 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl). Season with salt and pepper.Roast in the middle of the oven, until the potatoes are golden-brown, 25-28 min.

2. Make Dressing

Meanwhile, zest 1 tsp lemon rind (dbl for 4 ppl), then juice half the lemon (1 lemon for 4 ppl). Cut the remaining lemon into wedges. In a small bowl, whisk together the mustard, lemon zest, remaining thyme, 2 tbsp lemon juice (dbl for 4 ppl), 1 tbsp honey (dbl for 4 ppl) and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl). Set aside.

3. Cook Pork

Pat pork dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When pan is hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) then pork. Pan-fry pork until golden brown and cooked through, 4-6 min per side. (TIP: Cook to a min. internal temp. of 71°C/160°F, as size may vary.**) Set pork aside on a plate. Cover to keep warm.

Using the same pan, reduce the heat to medium, then add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4ppl). Add the beans and onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the beans are tender-crisp and the onions soften, 3-4 min. Season with salt and pepper.

5. Dress Beans

Remove the pan from the heat. Add 1 tbsp dressing (dbl for 4 ppl) from the small bowl and stir to coat. (NOTE: You will use the remaining dressing in Step 6!)

6. Finish and Serve

Thinly slice the pork. Divide the pork, potatoes and beans between the plates. Drizzle the remaining dressing over the pork. Squeeze over a lemon wedge, if desired.
