Saute green onions, carrots, garlic, kosher salt and pepper approx 5 minutes then add potatoes, apples and pears and herbs and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes until everything is well coated but not cooked tender. Sear pork chops in a hot frying pan with 2 Tbsp of olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper until just browned. Place in a baking dish and pour vegetables and glaze over pork chops. Stir together the dijon mustard and apple cider vinegar (or water) just enough to make it thin enough to drizzle over pork chops and vegetables. Snip fresh parsley and rosemary on top and cover dish with 2 layers of foil. Bake at 400 F for 45 minutes, then reduce heat to 250 F and bake for 30-40 more minutes. Make sure pork chops are cooked through and are no longer pink. ***********************************************************************************************************************************
