Gather the ingredients to make sheet pan pork chops and vegetables

Are you ready to get this cooking party started? The first thing you will need to do is make a list of ingredients to throw together this tasty dish. Start by taking a trip to the grocery store and adding white onion and some bell peppers to your cart. Next, you will need some olive oil and minced garlic. Remember to check at home first in case you have any items lying around. Then, grab some apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, and garlic powder, which will add some flavor to your dish. The last two spices you will need are salt and pepper. To complete your grocery trip, swing by the meat counter and get two pounds of boneless pork chops.

Preheat the oven and prep the baking sheet

Once you're back from the store, put the items out on the counter in front of you so they're ready to go. The only prep you need to do ahead of time is chopping the onions and the peppers. Then, set the oven's dial to 450 F and let it get nice and hot as you go about your business. It's best to preheat the oven ahead of time to avoid any delays once you're done throwing the dish together. Next, take out a baking sheet and cover the top with a piece of foil. As another layer of added protection, grease the foil with cooking spray so none of your vegetables will stick.

Put the onions and peppers on the baking sheet

Now that you have your baking sheet set up, you can start piling things on. Ah, the joys of a one-pan meal. The first thing you need to add is your white onions and bell peppers. Remember that you should have sliced these items ahead of time, which saves you a little bit of time here. Then, drizzle a few tablespoons of olive oil over the veggies, and add some minced garlic on top. Double check that your oven has finished preheating. Finally, pop the pan in the oven and set your timer for 10 minutes, allowing the veggies to cook before you add the pork chops.

Prep the pork chops

It's time to do a little bit of multi-tasking. While the veggies cook in the oven, you can prep the pork chops. It's super easy to do! Grab a small bowl and add the remaining olive oil and apple cider vinegar. "Using apple cider vinegar is a good way to bring out the tenderness in the pork," Musgraves shares.

Continue adding ingredients to the bowl, including Dijon mustard, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. Then, throw in the pork chops. Mix everything well so that the spices and the wet ingredients are evenly distributed on the pork.

Cook the pork and enjoy

Once your timer goes off, pull the vegetables out of the oven. Wedge the pork chops onto the pan, and then set your timer for another 10 to 15 minutes. You can confirm that the pork chops are good to go by using a meat thermometer, and the internal temperature of the meat should be 145 F.

Once you your meal out of the oven, you can plate it as you wish. "Serve with a salad or mashed potatoes," Musgrave shares. If you have a little something left? Simply store leftovers in a sealed container, refrigerated, for three to four days. We hope you enjoy this easy, wholesome, and delicious sheet pan meal!
