Fennel is one of my absolute favorite vegetables because it's flavor profile makes it incredibly versatile. It's licorice flavor mellows a bit when cooked and pairs so beautifully with the pork. These pork chops are tender, juicy and packed so much flavor thanks to the combo of fennel and juniper seeds.
If you're looking for a really tasty side dish I highly recommend this shaved Brussels sprouts and apple salad. You could also roasted up some broccolini or potatoes, and some roasted apples on top would also be a really delish addition!
If you have trouble finding juniper berries, click here to buy them online. Juniper berries are tart with a bit of a piney flavor and hint of citrus. You'll find they're used a lot to cut through the "gamey" flavor of meat like bison and venison. Because they're really flavor forward, a little goes a long way!
