This easy dish for two lets all the ingredients mingle on one baking sheet for extra flavour. Roasting the pork chops on top of the vegetables allows heat to surround the chops, helping them cook faster.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 bone-in pork chops (about 12 oz/340 g)
  • 2 slices bacon cut in 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 russet potato cut in 1/2-inch thick wedges
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 2 teaspoons grainy mustard
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 lb Brussels sprout trimmed and halved
  • 1 apple cut in 1-inch chunks

Method

Stir together sugar, paprika, onion powder, mustard powder and pinch of the garlic powder; rub all over pork chops. Set aside.

Sprinkle bacon over half of foil-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle potato with salt, pepper and remaining garlic powder; place on bacon. Roast in 425ºF (220ºC) oven for 20 minutes. Turn potato wedges.

Meanwhile, stir together mustard, maple syrup and vinegar; toss with brussels sprouts and apple. Add to empty side of baking sheet. Roast until brussels sprouts are tender and browned, about 25 minutes.

Place pork chops on brussels sprouts mixture; roast until juices run clear when pork is pierced and just a hint of pink remains inside, and potatoes are tender and browned, 8 to 10 minutes.
