Five-Spice Sheet Pan Supper

 

Five-Spice Sheet Pan Supper
Shown with Miso Five-Spice Sauce

 

One of the things I like best about sheet pan suppers is their versatility. Don’t have the veggies called for in your recipe? No problem — just substitute whatever you do have. The variations on seasonings are endless. If you want, you can have a sheet pan supper every week and never make the same one twice! This one, though, I know I’m going to want to make again.

My niece gave me a lovely set of flavored finishing salts. I’ve been looking for a dish for the porcini salt, so I opened my spice cupboard & started sniffing. That’s often how I get inspiration for seasonings, as silly as it sounds. If things smell good together, they usually taste good together, too. Once I’ve narrowed it down to a few ideas, I hold the open jars together in one hand and waft towards my nose with the other. Sometimes I play with little bits in a prep bowl if I want to get an idea where to start with the proportions. I loved the combination of the Five-Spice Powder and the Porcini Salt. And they taste as good together as they smell!

This sheet pan supper is super-delicious by itself and ever so easy. If you want to make it truly spectacular, serve it with Miso Five-Spice Sauce.

Ingredients:

0 f-ssp

1 medium sweet potato (7½  oz., or 213 g)

1 head of broccoli

2 large cloves of garlic

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

½ teaspoon Sichuan peppercorns

½ tsp salt

½ teaspoon Chinese Five Spice Powder

2 center-cut pork chops or boneless pork ribeye steaks (nutrition info based on 5 ounces, or 142 g, each)

porcini finishing salt (optional; nutrition calculated without this)

Preparation:

1.) Preheat the oven to 425º F (218º C). Peel the sweet potato, and cut it up into roughly 1” (2.5 cm) pieces. Place in a pile on a foil-lined sheet pan.

1 f-ssp

2.) Cut up the broccoli into similar-sized pieces and add it to the pile. Slice the garlic, if using, and add it as well.

2 f-ssp

3.) Drizzle the pile with the olive oil, then toss with your hands to coat evenly. Olive oil is good for your skin!

I added carrot chunks one night, but it was too crowded.

 

4.) Finely grind the Sichuan peppercorns with a mortar & pestle. Add the salt and five-spice powder; stir.

5.) Tuck the pork in amongst the veggie pieces, spreading everything out into a single layer. Sprinkle the mixed seasonings over everything. Place in the preheated oven and cook 20 to 30 minutes, or until the pork is done (145º F, or 63º C on a meat thermometer). Sprinkle with the porcini salt, then transfer to a serving bowl. Serve with Miso Five-Spice Sauce.

      My pleasure! They’re among my favorites. Sometimes on “those” days, it’s just a relief to throw everything on a pan & pop it in the oven quick & easy. When you add in a bit of seasoning, you also have delicious!
