Seared Pork Chop with Clementine Thyme Compound Butter & Charred Corn Succotash


Prepare an aged bone-in pork chop from Broadway Butcher, seared in a pan and finished in a 400 degree oven, or grill if you'd prefer.

Clementine Thyme Compound Butter
2 tablespoons Kansas City Canning Co. Clementine Thyme Marmalade
1/2 cup softened butter
1 teaspoon fresh picked thyme
1/2 teaspoon finely minced garlic
Salt & Pepper to taste

Fold all ingredients together, refrigerate until firm, top pork chops with a generous dollop

Charred Corn Succotash
1 shallot, finely chopped
2 tablespoons pickling liquid (from green beans)
1 cup shelled, cooked edamame
2 cups corn, off the cob (canned works in a pinch, but drain well)
1 tablespoon butter
Salt & Pepper to taste

Heat a cast iron skillet over med-high heat, add a light coating of olive oil, add corn.
Cook corn until charred on edges, add shallot and lower heat to medium.
Cook shallots until translucent, add green beans and edamame, cook until heated through.
Finish with green bean pickling liquid, butter, salt & pepper

The tartness and heat of the beans cuts the richness of the succotash nicely, it was tasty spin on an old classic- perfect for all the summer corn we've got headed our way!
