Miso Pork Chops with Broccolini are packed with delicious Asian flavors and are great for a weeknight when things might be rushed -- or, for a weekend when you want to impress guests! This quick and easy sheet pan dinner with pork will blow your taste buds away! Lately I've been loving sheet pan meals as much as one-pot meals.
One Pot Meal vs. Sheet Pan Meal
Typically a "one-pot meal" is thought of as something that's slowly cooked, for a long period of time, in one pot -- like my Braised Brisket Stew or my Short Rib Stew. These dishes are super comforting and are packed with warm flavors and ingredients that meld together perfectly.
A "sheet pan meal" is similar in that everything comes together in one cooking vessel, but it's usually less stew-like. Regardless, I'm finding them to be quite cozy. Yep, a meal on a sheet pan can be cozy. And that's definitely the case with this scrumptious sheet pan dinner with pork.
There's just something wonderfully warming about so many delicious flavors blending together in the oven -- all at once, in or on the same pan.
The Key to a Perfect Sheet Pan Meal
The key is choosing the ingredients that will be combining -- the flavors, the textures and the colors. It's all about how it will taste if a bit of everything makes its way onto your fork at once. It should create a perfect bite.
I typically choose ingredients that will cook fairly quickly -- a sheet pan dinner with pork chops is great because pork chops usually cook in a short period of time. And I selected the broccolini and peppers because they will cook in just about the same time period, and of course because they are delicious.
With bits of garlic and ginger in the miso glazed pork, it's sweet and savory and when it works its way into the broccolini florets, oh my!
You could serve this sheet pan dinner with pork over rice or noodles, or as is. It's delicious -- and cozy -- any which way!

Sheet Pan Miso Pork Chops Recipe
- ¼ cup light or white miso paste (Shiro-Miso)
- 3 tablespoons sake
- 2 tablespoons Mirin (sweet rice wine)
- 2 teaspoons fresh ginger pulp
- 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 4 (approximately 8-ounce) pork chops, bone-in
- ¼ cup grapeseed oil
- 2 cups red bell pepper, thinly sliced (about 2 medium-sized peppers)
- ½ pound broccolini, washed and dried
- ½ cup shallots, thinly sliced
- sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Make marinade. Use a whisk to blend the miso, sake, Mirin, ginger, garlic and sugar. Pour it into a heavy-duty zip-lock bag and set aside.
- Marinate. Trim any excess fat off the pork chops and then place them in the bag. Move them around to be sure they're well coated with the marinade, and then gently press any air out of the bag and seal it. Let the pork marinate in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
- Set oven. Preheat the oven to 400°F and adjust a rack to the center.
- Assemble all ingredients on sheet pan. Pour the oil on a sheet pan and then toss the peppers, broccolini and shallots in it. Generously season with salt and pepper, mix and then evenly spread the mixture out in a single layer, leaving 4 empty spaces for the pork chops.Remove the pork chops from the refrigerator and then, without wiping off any excess marinade, add them to the empty spaces on the sheet pan. If there's still marinade left in the bag, you can drizzle a bit over the vegetables. Season the pork chops with pepper and place the sheet pan in the preheated 400°F oven.
- Bake. Bake just until the pork is cooked through, probably no more than 20 minutes.Toss the vegetables and check the pork about halfway through the cooking time. (If the surface of the pork isn't golden when it's done, if you'd like to, you can place the sheet pan under the broiler for about 30 seconds. It's just as delicious either way, but looks prettier when it's golden.)

Such a great dinner! Love all the color. My husband would especially appreciate the use of only one pan.
Ha! Love it! 🙂
This dinner looks wonderful! I LOVE broccolini and I'm always searching for exiting things to do to pork. I can't wait to try this!
Thanks, Kristine! Hope you love it!
Sheet pan meals are so useful for weeknight meals. These pork chops look delicious!
Yes, love them on busy weeknights! Enjoy!

Yes, broccolini is my favorite. I love the slightly bitter flavor and add it to pork. Oh yes, so good. I can't wait to try this! I always try new ways to incorporate miso into recipes. Thank you for this!
Thanks so much Elaine! 😀
For the life of me, I cannot find miso paste in any of my local grocery stores, and I live in a pretty big city! I'm going to have to purchase on Amazon so I can make this dish ASAP!
Such a bummer you can't find the miso paste close by. This is the one I use. It's much less expensive in an Asian market, but the good news it that it will last for a very long time. A year or so! 🙂
Can't wait to try this!!
Thanks, Kaye! Hope you love it!
I usually prepare one sheet pan dinner every week. It's such a time saver, why not? I almost always default to chicken thighs and drumsticks with a seasonal vegetable. Your wonderful recipe has me craving a change of pace!
Thank you, Deb. Okay, now I'm craving chicken thighs and drumsticks! 🙂
Love sheet pan dinners. Haven't done it with pork chops. What a great idea!
Thanks, Patricia! This is one of my favorites. 🙂
Valentina, this is a dish worthy of a prize! I love everything about it: the simplicity, the colors, the flavors together and its beauty on that tray! Don't know why I've never thought to do pork chops in the oven before! Thanks for this lovely recipe! Shared on my FB page. 🙂
Thank you so very much for the fabulous comment! XO
Hmmm. Two miso posts in a row... is this a hint? I have never cooked with miso, so maybe the universe is telling me to try it!
Wow, this was great! The sauce, in particular, was amazing. It smelled so good, even before I cooked it. The Sauce was plate-licking good, and now I'm looking for any other way to use it. Lol. Your pics accurately reflect how yummy this was. (Oh, I used regular Broccoli and Baby Carrots, which worked well - everything finished at the same time.) Thanks for the delicious recipe!
Thank you, Dorothy! I'm so happy it lived up to its pictures. 🙂 I bet the sweetness of the carrots was great with the sauce and everything else on the pan. I've been known to lick a plate or two myself. 😉 Enjoy, and thanks for sharing and trying my recipes. ~Valentina
this is fabulous! I just threw a small bottle of mirin away, because I haven’t used it in years! Now I need to buy more. Love this recipe - it seems that pork goes especially well with Asian flavors.

Now, compared to 4 years ago I have miso in my fridge all the time. And, Trader Joe has started carrying bone in pork chops! (OK, he’s been carrying them for a couple of years…) This is definitely a perfect dish for us, especially if we cut it in half. Thanks for putting this out today as a reminder… I’ve added it to my menu for next week!
I'm so happy you like this one, David. Thank you! I recently noticed the miso at Trader Joe's too. So convenient. 🙂 ~Valentina
