Italian Pan-Seared Pork Recipe Is a Sheet-Pan Delight That Cooks in 20 Minutes

This fuss-free dish features a combination of pork chops, vibrant veggies and a pungent seasoning

If you’re looking for an easy way to serve meat and veggies at the dinner table, try this recipe for Italian Pan-Seared Pork. It’s a tangy and pungent sheet-pan dish that features ingredients like pork chops, zucchini, garlic powder and fontina cheese. Although boneless chops allow this dish to cook in just 20 minutes, you can use bone-in pork chops instead for extra moist and flavorful meat. 

Bone-in chops are often thicker than the boneless variety, so they’ll need to sear for about 5 to 6 minutes per side. This helps ensure that the outside is nicely browned and the inside reaches an internal temperature of 145°F. Then, you can proceed with the remaining steps in the recipe. Complete the dish with a starchy side like warm crusty bread, fluffy orzo, or roasted potatoes and enjoy!
