Patting the pork dry before seasoning and cooking, helps reduce the amount of moisture the chop releases, creating less steam during cooking. This allows your meat to get a flavourful golden-brown crust.
Wash and dry all produce.* Cut the potatoes in half (or into quarters if they are larger). In a medium pot, combine the potatoes with enough salted water to cover (approximately 1-2 inches). Bring to a boil over high heat. Cook until the potatoes are fork-tender, 10-12 min.
Meanwhile, roughly chop the dill. Juice half the lemon (1 lemon for 4 ppl). In a medium bowl, whisk together the mustard, dill, 1 tsp sugar (double for 4 ppl), 2 tbsp lemon juice (double for 4 ppl) and 2 tbsp oil (double for 4 ppl). Transfer half the dill dressing to another medium bowl and stir in the sour cream. Set aside.
Core, then cut the apple(s) into 1/4-inch pieces. Core, then cut the fennel slices into into 1/4-inch pieces. Add the apple and fennel to the medium bowl with the remaining dill dressing (without the sour cream) and toss together. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
Pat the pork dry with paper towels, then season with salt and pepper. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Add a drizzle of oil, then the pork. Sear the pork until golden-brown and cooked through, 4-6 min per side. (TIP: Cook to a minimum internal temp. of 71°C/160°F, as size may vary.**)
When the potatoes are fork-tender, drain and add the potatoes to the reserved dill-sour cream dressing. Toss together and season with salt and pepper.
Thinly slice the pork. Divide the apple-fennel-salad between plates and top with the pork. Serve with the potato salad.
