Panko-Crusted Pork Chops With Roasted Broccoli Rabe
1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs
1/3 cup Dijon mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons sweet paprika
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 bone-in pork chops (1 inch thick; about 2 1/2 pounds total)
kosher salt and black pepper
1 bunch broccoli rabe (or 2 bunches broccolini), thick stems trimmed
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 15.5-ounce can cannellini beans, rinsed
lemon wedges, for serving
Heat oven to 450° F with the racks in the upper and lower thirds.
Place the bread crumbs on a rimmed plate or baking dish. Combine the mustard, paprika, and cayenne in a medium bowl. Season the pork with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Spread both sides of the pork with the mustard coating, dividing evenly, then coat with the bread crumbs, pressing gently to help them adhere.
Roast the pork on a large rimmed baking sheet on the top rack until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part (avoiding the bone) registers 145° F, 15 to 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, toss the broccoli rabe, oil, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and black pepper on a separate rimmed baking sheet. Roast on the bottom rack, tossing occasionally, until crisp-tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Toss with the cannellini beans.
Serve the pork over the broccoli rabe and beans with the lemon wedges, for squeezing.
