Four Steps to an Easy Keto-Friendly Sheet Pan Dinner

This springy, easy baked pork chop recipe is everything a brilliant weeknight dinner should be—one pan, ready in 30 minutes, and involving just a few simple, healthy ingredients. Boneless pork chops are slathered with a juiciness-ensuring mayo-and-mustard sauce, and then baked on a sheet pan along with asparagus and scallions. That’s all there is to this family-friend, keto-friendly pork chop recipe. Here’s the step-by-step:

  1. Whip up a quick sauce: combine mayo, mustard, chili flakes Worcestershire and garlic.
  2. Pop your pork chops on one side of a baking sheet and slather with the garlicky mayo-mustard sauce.
  3. Lay out your asparagus on the other half of the baking sheet, and gently toss them with a little olive oil and salt.
  4. Bake! The cooking time for your baked pork chops will vary slightly depending on the thickness of your chops. Our pork chops were one-inch thick, and took about 20 minutes. If you’re nervous about cooking pork, or worry that you don’t know how to tell if pork is done, don’t be! You can always use your trusty meat thermometer (we love this one) to check for doneness—the rule for pork chops is to cook them to an internal temperature of 145°F.

What Is a Pork Chop?

Well, it’s never simple, is it? A few different cuts of pork fall under the category of “pork chop”. All pork chops are cut from the loin, but which part of the pork loin the chop is cut from can make a difference—some parts are going to be more marbled, while other are leaner. For this baked pork chop recipe, the main consideration is cooking time. You’ll want to ask your butcher for boneless pork chops, and you want to be sure that your pork chops aren’t cut too thick. Since this is a one-pan dinner, you want the pork chops to roast at about the same rate as the asparagus, and asparagus cooks quickly.

Spring Produce, We Love You.

After a long winter of labor-intensive, long-cooking root vegetables and squash, the sight of spring produce makes our hearts leap. Whether you’re shopping at the grocery store or the farmers market, by April or May at the latest, you’ll find yourself surrounded by leafy baby greens, tendril-y pea shoots and of course, the undisputed king of spring—asparagus!

Asparagus is a big favorite in our kitchens for quite a few reasons:

  • It needs almost no prep. If the ends seem a bit woody, just snap or chop them off. No need to peel or otherwise fuss with them. Just a quick rinse and on to the sheet pan.
  • Asparagus cooks quickly.
  • It’s technically a finger food! Asparagus is arguably one of the most fun-for-kids vegetables because it’s meant to be eaten with your fingers.

    Did you broil this at all after baking? Mine did not yield a similar looking 'grilled' look as in your photos

    You definitely can pop it under the broiler for a couple minutes at the end if you'd like to!

  • Sarah

    What is the sauce shown in the picture? Thanks!

    It's the same mayonnaise mixture used to coat the pork chops before baking.
