Rubbed with anise seed for a subtle sweetness and then seared, this tender pork comes with an eye-catching rainbow Swiss chard side. Oh, and how could we forget the rich red wine–shallot sauce? Add it liberally and pair with your favorite someone (and bottle of red wine).


  1. 1Preheat oven to 425°F. Rinse chard. Cut stems into 1/4-inch slices and cut leaves into 2-inch pieces. Rinse potatoes and halve lengthwise. Peel shallots, halve, and thinly slice. Mince garlic. Rinse pork and pat dry with paper towel.
  2. 2On a baking sheet, toss potatoes with 1 tablespoon olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Arrange in a single layer and roast in oven until golden brown and tender, about 18 minutes. Meanwhile, season pork chops on both sides with anise seed, salt, and pepper.
  3. 3While potatoes are roasting, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat. When oil is shimmering add pork and cook until browned outside and just cooked through, 3 minutes per side. Remove from pan and cover with foil to keep warm.
  4. 4Return pan from pork to medium heat and add butter. When butter is foamy, add shallots and cook until softened, about 4 minutes. Add remaining garlic and cook until just golden, about 1 minute. Add tomato paste and stir to combine. Cook until bright brick red, about 1 minute. Add wine and allow to reduce by half, about 30 seconds. Add chicken stock and simmer until reduced by half, about 6 minutes. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.
  5. 5While sauce is cooking, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat. When oil is shimmering add garlic and chard stems. Cook until stems are softened, about 4 minutes. Add chard leaves and 1 tablespoon water. Cook until leaves are wilted, about 5 minutes more. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.
  6. 6Return pork to pan with sauce and stir to coat. Add potatoes to pan with Swiss chard and stir to combine. Divide pork with sauce, and chard and potatoes, evenly between 2 plates and serve.
