We’re all about one-pot meals, sheet-pan dinners and things you throw in a Crock-Pot and forget about. But there’s something satisfying about a classic square meal—a protein, carb and vegetable, just like your mom used to serve. Pork chops are always a sure bet—they’re easy to prepare, relatively lean and always delicious. But what should you serve with them? Here are 35 of our favorite sides for pork chops.
Switch it up from your usual roasted situation.
They’re gorgeous, unexpected and supremely easy to make.
It’s ready in 20 minutes—thanks, Ina.
Sometimes simple is best, especially when there’s no cleanup.
What’s a little extra pork between friends?
This version is done in 15 minutes, no peeling required.
We’ll never turn down a dish made primarily of potatoes, butter and cheese.
Like applesauce, the sweetness in these fries brings out the flavor of the pork chop. (Plus, they’re packed with vitamins.)
The secret weapon in these velvety, make-ahead potatoes is cream cheese (but shh, don’t tell anyone).
Put on your drawstring pants.
Ooh, so fancy.
Psst: Sage brings the whole dish together.
Kick things up a notch.
Move over, potatoes. We'll be eating these veggie fritters all year long.
Presenting our new favorite way to eat salad.
Made with a tangy vinegar base instead of mayo, this side is especially tasty with pork chops.
Made with coconut milk, your fave side is now dairy-free (and just a tad healthier).
Top them with creamy mushrooms, spicy Brussels sprouts or balsamic caramelized onions (or plain sour cream and chives—we won’t judge).
Make this in the summer with grilled pork chops and a fresh crunchy salad.
Another go-to favorite. (Diet starts tomorrow.)
They’re caramelized, cheesy and well worthy of a second helping.
We love this crisp starter with apples, macerated cranberries, walnuts and a mustardy vinaigrette.
Made in the slow cooker with only five ingredients, this is basically our dream side.
