Low-Carb Sheet Pan Mustard Pork ChopsPin recipeFollow us 119.8k

When I'm too busy to cook but don't want to rely on simple snacks like nuts and avocado, I often turn to sheet pan dinners to get me through.

We all love sheet pan meals because they require minimum prep time! You just need to place all of the ingredients in a tray or a large ovenproof skillet and let the oven do the work for you.

Just like any of our one-pot meals and tray bakes, these low-carb sheep pan pork chops are a great way to deal with busy weeknights. It's a great way to get speedy family-friendly in under an hour with minimum washing up to do.
