One-Tray Maple Pork Chops

Recipe modified by Strive for Wellness®

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes

Servings: 8 (Size: ½ pork chop)


4 8-ounce, ½-inch-thick bone-in center-cut pork chops
1¼ teaspoons kosher salt, divided
¾ teaspoon ground black pepper, divided
1 tablespoon whole-grain (or stone-ground) mustard
1 tablespoon maple syrup
¼ cup olive oil, divided
1 pound (about 2½ cups) parsnips, thinly sliced (or carrots)
1 small bulb (about 3 cups) fennel, cored and thinly sliced (or celery)
2 small red apples, sliced
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F with rack in center position. Season pork with 1 teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. Arrange on 1 side of a large, rimmed baking sheet. Whisk mustard, syrup and 1 tablespoon oil in a small bowl; brush mixture on top of pork.
  2. Toss parsnips, fennel, apples and garlic with remaining ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper and 3 tablespoons oil in a large bowl until coated. Arrange mixture in a single layer on other side of baking sheet.
  3. Bake until vegetables are tender — about 10 minutes. Increase oven temperature to broil. Broil until vegetables start to turn golden and slightly crisp and a thermometer inserted in thickest portion of pork registers 145°F — about 4 minutes.
