Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F.Wash and dry all produce. Peel garlic, then toss with 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) on a small sheet of foil. Wrap tightly to close. Add wrapped garlic to a baking sheet. Roast in the middle of the oven, until softened, 16-18 min. Meanwhile, peel, then mince the shallot. Peel, then cut potatoes into 1-inch pieces. Strip 1/2 tbsp thyme (dbl for 4 ppl) from the stems. Trim green beans.
Combine potatoes, 2 tsp salt and enough water to cover (approx. 1-inch) in a large pot. (NOTE: Use same for 4ppl.) Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium. Simmer, uncovered, until fork-tender, 10-12 min. Meanwhile, pat pork dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper, then wrap 2 bacon strips around each pork chop.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then bacon-wrapped pork chops. Cook, until golden, 2-3 min per side. Remove pan from heat and reserve fat (the fat is used in Step 4). Add bacon-wrapped pork chops to the baking sheet with garlic. Roast in the middle of the oven, until cooked through, 10-12 min.**
While pork chops cook, heat the same pan (with fat) over medium heat. Add shallots, stirring until softened, 1-2 min. Add the flour. Cook, stirring together, until combined, 1 min. Add 1 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl) and broth concentrate. Cook, stirring together, until combined, 1 min. Add thyme and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring often, until thickened, 2-5 min. When garlic is done, remove foil and transfer to a large bowl. Add mustard and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then whisk until garlic is smooth.
When potatoes are almost done, add beans (without stirring) to same pot. Cook, until tender, 2-5 min. Using tongs, transfer beans to garlic mustard oil. Season with salt and pepper, then toss together. Drain potatoes and return to same pot, off heat. Using a potato masher, mash in maple syrup and 2 tbsp butter (dbl for 4ppl), until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
Stir any pork juices from the baking sheet into the gravy. Divide the mash, bacon-wrapped pork chops and garlic mustard beans between plates. Spoon the gravy over the bacon-wrapped pork chops.
