Wash produce before use


Prep and brown the peaches and pork chops

  • Cut the peaches into quarters lengthwise away from the pit.
  • Pat the pork dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the peaches, cut sides down, and cook until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and set aside. Do not clean the pan.
In the same pan, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the pork and cook, turning once, until starting to brown but not yet cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan.
While the peaches and pork brown, prepare the gravy ingredients.


Prep the gravy ingredients

  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • In a medium bowl, using a fork or whisk, mix together the arrowroot powder, vegetable broth, and mustard to form a slurry.


Make the gravy; finish the pork

In the same pan used for the pork, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Stir in the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook until starting to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion starts to brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Stir in the thyme and cook until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.
Stir the arrowroot slurry to recombine, then add the slurry to the pan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and add the pork and 1 to 2 tablespoons butter, if using. Cook, turning the pork once, until it is still faintly pink within and the gravy has thickened, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and season the gravy to taste with salt and pepper.
While the pork and gravy cook, prepare the salad.


Make the arugula-peach salad

  • Cut the peaches into 1-inch-thick wedges.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the balsamic vinegar and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil; season to taste with salt and pepper.
In a medium bowl, toss together the arugula, peaches, and as much balsamic vinaigrette as you like (set aside any remaining vinaigrette for serving). Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the pork and gravy to individual plates. Serve the arugula-peach salad and any remaining vinaigrette on the side.
