One Pan Ranch Pork Chops & Cumin Vegetables

Some nights are in our house are like a Jason Pollock painting. Something is definitely hitting the fan. Ear piercing sibling screams. Sippy cup splattering milk. Hurled crushed orange “flavored” snack confetti.

Back to the healthy, simple meal I will serve my family… Tonight, it will all be on one pan. That’s right. Brush, chop, toss, and bake!

I like to marinate the pork chops for at least an hour, but you could easily put these straight in the oven. A little ranch, a splash of Worcestershire, a sprinkle of rosemary, and brush it out.

Next, toss chopped sweet potatoes and baby carrots in a mixture of olive oil, cumin, and salt. Arrange the sweet potatoes and carrots on a sheet pan. If you don’t like doing dishes, line it with parchment paper or tin foil first.

After a 20 minute head start, add the green beans to the veggie mixture and toss. Then, scooch the medley to one side of the sheet pan and add the pork chops. Cook for another 10-15 minutes or until moist, sizzling, and starting to caramelize.

These chops were done a few minutes before the vegetables, so I pulled them off to rest.

A few minutes later, and let’s do this before the little sister eats the big sister.
