Honey Sriracha Pork Chop Sheet Pan Meal

Making food from scratch does not always need to be complicated or take a lot of time. In fact, a majority of the time the meals we enjoy at our house are simple and don’t require too many steps. This Honey Sriracha Pork Chop Sheet Pan meal is just that. Easy, flavorful and the *biggest* perk, only one pan! This meal is quick to throw together and only bakes for 30 minutes making it an excellent weeknight dinner.

Three reasons why I love this recipe:

1. This sheet pan meal requires nearly no prep work, and the prep work there is, is simple. There are very few ingredients that need cut and though typically pineapple may be more tedious to cut, it is a breeze with my OXO Pineapple Tool. Not to mention the sauce also comes together seamlessly as well. If you are wanting another easy weeknight meal, check out my Healthy Cheeseburger Soup.

2. The honey sriracha flavors mixed with this assortment of veggies and pineapple gives me sweet and sour vibes but on a much more simplistic level. The sauce has just the right amount of kick while still being at a mostly family friendly level of heat.

3. This recipe is paleo, gluten and dairy free, and offers a full serving of vegetables and is a great source of protein. If you are not trying to follow a paleo diet, you can also add in brown rice for a great source of healthy carbs. It really makes eating healthy so very easy.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What cut of pork chop is best for this recipe?

I personally used 8 oz boneless pork chops and honestly because they were on sale. You could easily use a butterfly cut or bone in although your cooking time may change. Remember 145 degrees fahrenheit is the minimum temp that all pork should be cooked to.

Can I use any brand of ketchup or sriracha sauce to keep this meal paleo?

No, unfortunately not all brands are created equally. I personally always use primal kitchen ketchup which has no sweetener at all. As for the sriracha I enjoy using the Yellow Bird brand which you can find on Thrive Market or at Whole Foods.

Can I adjust the level of spice in the sriracha honey sauce?

Of course! I personally find the level that it is at to not be very spicy, but if you want to tone it down even more, simply substitute ketchup. For example you could use 3 Tablespoons of sriracha and 3 Tablespoons of ketchup instead of 1/3 cup.

How to Make Sriracha Honey Pork Chop Sheet Pan Meal:

  1. Make the sauce

    In a small bowl or liquid measuring cup, combine the sriracha, honey, ketchup, coconut aminos, avocado oil and garlic. Mix ingredients then set aside.

  2. Marinade the pork chops

    Place pork chops in a shallow dish, cover with about three-fourths of the sauce. Marinade for a minimum of 30 minutes or up to 24 hours.

  3. Cut vegetables and place on the sheet pan

    Cut the onions and bell peppers into about 1 inch square pieces, they don’t need to be perfect. You will also want your pineapple to be about the same size. I use this Oxo pineapple tool that we got as a wedding gift and it makes cutting a pineapple and sinch. Drizzle avocado oil over the vegetables and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss on the sheet pan until veggies are coated.

  4. Nessel the pork chops and bake

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit. Nessel the pork chops in the vegetables, drizzle some of the remaining marinade on top of the pork chops. Bake in oven for 30 minutes, then broil for 2 additional minutes.

  5. Enjoy!

    I personally serve these with brown rice but if you are wanting to avoid grains you could easily serve with cauliflower rice or as is, with pork chop and veggies. Drizzle the reserved sauce over the top of the bowls and top with sesame seeds.
