How to make it
- Season both side of pork chops with salt and pepper. In a large ziplock bag, add the garlic and rosemary and smash until the garlic is like a paste. Add the pork, oil and balsamic and "smoosh" around in bag. Marinate pork for at least 2 hours or overnight.
- Grill pork chops 5-8 minutes on each side or until internal temp is 140 degrees. Take off grill, lightly tent with foil and let rest 8-10 minutes.
- Sweet Potato Polenta:
- Bake sweet potato rubbed with olive oil, wrapped in foil in oven at 350 degrees until soft. Take skin off and mash with cream, salt and pepper until smooth.
- In a saucepan, over medium heat, bring the water and milk to a boil. Slowly stir in the polenta. Cook, stirring constantly, for 15 minutes. Add the sweet potato. Stir in a little more cream for a smooth and creamy texture. Season with salt and pepper. Taste to make sure you have a creamy texture not gritty. Remove from the heat, add butter and serve immediately.
- Arugula Salad:
- Place greens in bowl. Add oil and vinegar and some of the cheese. Toss lightly with tongs.
- To plate:
- Spoon polenta on serving plate. Place pork chop halfway on polenta. Top pork chop high with arugula salad and additional shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano.

This is super delicious and plates up beautifully! Thanks for sharing the recipe. I didn't have a sweet potato, but I did just happen to have some butternut squash and fennel puree in the freezer, so used that instead. I left out the cream at the ...moreheadlettuce in loved it
