Polynesian Sheet Pan Pork Chops is the epitome of simplicity and convenience. It’s a one-pan wonder that requires minimal effort, perfect for those busy days when you want a great meal without the hassle of washing multiple pans.
Imagine coming home from a long day, picking up your kids from the bus stop, and still being able to serve a wholesome dinner in just 30 minutes. That’s the magic of this recipe.
Pork chops are a versatile ingredient that can be prepared in various ways. Whether you choose to use a slow cooker, oven, pressure cooker, grill, or a trusty sheet pan like I did, the result is always mouthwatering. And here’s a tip to ensure your pork is cooked to perfection every time.
To achieve tender and juicy pork, cook it until it reaches an internal temperature of 145°F. Use a digital cooking thermometer to measure the temperature at the thickest part of the meat, avoiding contact with any bones. Once it reaches the desired temperature, remove it from the heat and let it rest for three minutes. This will ensure that your pork is not only safe to eat but also incredibly flavorful.
For this recipe, I personally prefer using boneless pork chops. However, bone-in pork chops work just as well. Choose whatever option suits your preference.
As we enjoy this mouthwatering dish, let’s take a moment to appreciate the hard work of pork farmers. Many of them come from a long line of pork farmers, with the family business passed down through generations. Over the years, farming methods, technology, and economics have evolved, but the commitment of farmers to produce safe and nutritious food remains unwavering. They understand that raising healthy pigs using responsible farming practices results in high-quality pork products that we can enjoy with peace of mind.
