The end of the summer (I don’t even want to type those words) has meant less time for cooking as we are trying to pack every last second with family fun. When we get back home from the pool or the park or a short trip to explore a new part of Utah, honestly, I just want to twitch my nose and blink my eyes and have dinner magically appear. Since I’ve not yet harnessed my magical powers, a sheet pan dinner like this one is the next-quickest way to getting a complete meal on the table without all the cleanup.
Why this Recipe Works
Simple, easy, delicious, nutritious…one-pan dinners are LIFE!
Fast — Getting pork chops, roasted potatoes and broccoli all cut, seasoned, cooked, and plated could take a couple hours OR you could cut that time in half by baking it all on one sheet pan, now that’s just good time management!
Nutritious — Pork is a source of lean protein, broccoli is so good for you and has fiber and vitamins galore, and potatoes aren’t bad for you either if they’re lightly seasoned and baked like they are here. That’s one well-rounded meal!
Tender — using thicker cuts of pork, seasoning, cooking, and allowing them a few minutes to rest means a lovely, tender, tasty cut of pork, bite after bite.
Easy clean up — One pan also means you won’t have loads of different pots and pans to wash after dinner…everything bakes in one sheet pan, so that’s all you’ll have to clean up! Make cleaning even easier by lining the pan with foil first if you like!
Here’s How you Make it
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and grease a baking sheet (or line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and then grease).
- Put the seasoned potato halves on a ⅓ of the baking sheet and put them in the oven to bake for 5-10 minutes while you prepare the pork chops.
- Season the pork chops on both sides with salt, pepper, garlic powder, Italian herb blend, paprika, and ranch dressing.
- When the potatoes have cooked for 5-10 minutes, take them out and add the pork chops to the center third of the pan and put it back in the oven for another 10 minutes.
- While that bakes again, toss the broccoli with oil and season with salt and pepper. Add the broccoli to the remaining ⅓ of the sheet pan and put it back into the oven for another 10-15 minutes.
- When the broccoli and potatoes are easily pierced with a fork, they are done. To ensure the pork is also done cooking, you can insert a meat thermometer and if it reads 145, you’re good to go.
- Take everything out of the oven and allow the pork to rest for 3-5 minutes before serving with the potatoes and broccoli.
Ideas for Customizing this Dish
- Swap out the broccoli for another hearty veggie like cauliflower, brussels sprouts, or green beans.
- Consider seasoning the potatoes with dry ranch mix or another favorite seasoning if you prefer.
- You can use bone-in pork chops if you like but be careful to not overcook them as they usually tend to be on the thinner side.
- If you don’t have baby gold or red potatoes, you can use whatever potatoes you have on hand or enjoy. Sweet potatoes would also be delicious!
- If you’d like to omit the dry ranch seasoning and use a sauce instead, I recommend my Dijon Cream Sauce. It’s so easy and delicious on pork chops.
- I like to get thicker cuts of pork chops because they cook more slowly and are less likely to dry out and be tough to chew. Another key to juicy, tender pork chops is to let them rest for 3-5 minutes after baking to really lock in those juices.
- There’s no reason to rinse pork before cooking it. This can spread more bacteria around your kitchen, the opposite of what you want. Instead, pat the pork dry before seasoning it if you want to get the excess moisture off of it after removing it from the packaging.
- You could also marinade the pork instead of using a dry rub if you prefer. Try my Quick Pork Marinade, it won’t add too much extra time to your meal at all.
