Inspiration

The inspiration for the Sheet Pan Pork Pancetta Brussel Sprouts really just came after a long day of work, not having motivation to cook anything, but ultimately refusing to spend money ordering out. We had pork laid out to make our Quick Pork Lo Mein but quickly realized we didn’t have Lo Mein noodles and was thrown for a loop. So thus began my clean out the fridge sheet pan meal. The Sweet Balsamic Sauce is so bright but calmed down by the goat cheese after roasted to perfection. And the best part, only 1 sheet pan to toss in the dishwasher when we were finished.

Tools needed

Sheet Pan: The only tool actually required is a large oven proof sheet pan to roast the pork and veggies.

Ingredients

Pork Chops: You can use bone in or boneless, whatever is your preference. We love bone in because we feel there is more flavor but for the purpose of simplicity we chose to use boneless so it would be easier to serve and eat.

Goat Cheese: The goat cheese adds a touch of creaminess to this sweet and tangy dish. You can substitute with feta cheese if you prefer.

Craisins: Provides this Sheet Pan Pork Pancetta Brussel Sprouts with an extra burst of flavor at the end.

Pancetta: As you might have guessed from our other recipes, I am a big pancetta fan. Its a saltier type of bacon. Boar’s Head usually makes a good chopped package you can find in the meat or deli section.

Maple, Honey, Balsamic: The perfect combo. Any time we want to add sweetness to a dish usually one or more of these three ingredients come into play. When combined together with seasoning, watch out!

Step by step

To start making this Sheet Pan Pork Pancetta Brussel Sprouts, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a small mixing bowl combine all of the Sweet Balsamic Sauce ingredients and whisk until combined. In a large zip lock bag add the sweet balsamic sauce, pork chops, pancetta, chopped onions, and quartered brussel sprouts. Shake well and pour out onto a large sheet pan lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Bake for 20 minutes or until the internal temperature of the pork chops reach 145 degrees. Remove from oven, add the craisins and goat cheese before serving!

From our kitchen to yours, cheers!
