Before starting, preheat the oven to 425˚F. Wash and dry all produce. Peel, then cut potatoes into 1-inch pieces. Add potatoes, 2 tsp salt and enough water to cover (by approx. 1 inch) to a large pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium. Simmer uncovered until fork-tender, 10-12 min.
Meanwhile, cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Thinly slice chives. Stir together maple syrup and mustard in a small bowl. Set aside. Add broccoli and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to an unlined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Roast in the middle of the oven, tossing and adding garlic halfway through, until golden brown, 16-18 min.
Meanwhile, pat pork dry with paper towels, then season with salt and Smoked Paprika-Garlic Blend. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then pork. Pan-fry until golden, 2-3 min per side. Transfer pork to another unlined baking sheet. Roast in the top of the oven until cooked through, 10-12 min.** Carefully wipe the pan clean.
Reheat the same pan over medium. While the pan heats, line a plate with parchment paper. When hot, add brown sugar and 1 tbsp water (dbl for 4 ppl) to the pan. Season with salt. Stir until brown sugar melts, 1 min. Add walnuts to the pan. Cook, stirring often, until mixture turns into a thick, caramel-like glaze and coats walnuts, 1-2 min. Remove the pan from heat. Carefully transfer hot candied walnuts to the parchment paper-lined plate. (NOTE: Don't touch walnuts; they will be VERY hot.)Using a rubber spatula, spread walnuts into an even layer. Set aside to cool for 5 min.
When potatoes are fork-tender, drain and return them to the same pot, off heat. Mash cream, half the chives and 2 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) into potatoes until creamy. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Thinly slice pork. Divide pork, mashed potatoes and broccoli between plates.Spoon maple-mustard over pork, then sprinkle with remaining chives. Sprinkle candied walnuts over broccoli.
