Ingredients

Boneless pork chops are an inexpensive cut of meat. Their flavor tastes anything but light.

Instructions

Heat 2 tsp. oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Sear pork until lightly browned; transfer to a bowl. Add remaining 1 tsp. oil to the pot.

Sauté onion, carrot, celery, and garlic in pot until tender, 8–10 minutes. Add 1/2 cup broth, scraping up any browned bits in the pot.

Purée 1 1/2 cups beans and 1/2 cup broth in a food processor until blended; add to the pot. Add remaining 1 1/2 cups whole beans, remaining 3 cups broth, bay leaf, and rosemary to the pot. Cook soup, covered, until carrot and celery are tender, 15–20 minutes.

Stir in pork along with any juices from the bowl. Remove soup from heat; stir in vinegar. Remove bay leaf before serving.

Sear the pork to lock in juices, then remove the pork to a bowl so the meat doesn't dry out in the soup.
