Recipe Tips

  • For more consistent results, allow pork chops to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes prior to cooking.
  • The chops are pan-seared before finished on the sheet pan. This is to give the chops a nice crust.
  • If you prefer, you can skip the searing part and go direct to cooking in the oven – cook everything together for 20-25 minutes until the chops are cooked through.

Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

If you're looking for a quick yet flavorful dinner idea, I’ve got you covered with these Sheet Pan Pork Chops with Roasted Grapes and Fennel. This imaginative meal elevates pork chops to a whole new level! The combination of flavors which also include thyme, rosemary, and Dijon mustard, will delight the palate and the dish is ready to devour in around 30 minutes!

Ingredients

  • 1 medium fennel bulb, thinly sliced
  • 2 shallots, sliced
  • 3 cups red seedless grapes
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • ¼ cup olive oil, divided
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 4 thick-cut bone-in pork chops (approximately 1” thick)
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6.
  2. Arrange the sliced fennel, shallots, and grapes on a large, rimmed sheet pan. Sprinkle with dried thyme and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil and toss to combine. Nestle the rosemary sprigs amongst the vegetables and grapes. Place in the oven for 10 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, heat the remaining olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Lightly brush the pork chops with mustard and season with salt and black pepper, to taste.
  4. Add the seasoned chops to the hot skillet and sear until a nice crust forms, approximately 3-4 minutes on each side.

Notes

  • *Actual cooking time will vary depending on how thick the chops are and the internal temperature of the chops before cooking.
  • Never cook by time alone. You are cooking to a final internal temperature and not by the clock. The time estimates are provided for your planning.
  • Pork should reach an internal temperature of 145°-150°F before serving.
  • Use an instant-read thermometer to confirm the pork has reached approximately 140°F before removing it from heat.
  • The internal temperature will continue to rise while the pork rests.
