Sheet pan meals are the epitome of easy dinners. This pork tenderloin with vegetables is perfect for the coming fall and winter days. It's super comforting but also healthy which isn't an easy feat to pull off!
Leftovers keep well for about 5 days, and can be reheated in the microwave or oven so it's also a great meal prep recipe!
Tips for making this sheet pan pork tenderloin meal:
Pork tenderloin is one of my all-time favorite cuts of meat. It is so tender and flavorful but it's also very forgiving to overcooking.
I wanted to make sure that this recipe c0uld cook entirely on one sheet pan, so I did not sear the pork tenderloin before adding it to the sheet pan. If time allows, I do think it's a good idea to sear the tenderloin which helps deepen the flavor and lock in some of the moisture.
To do this, simply heat some oil in a large skillet over high heat. Once hot add the tenderloin and cook for a few minutes on all sides just to brown the outside. After searing, season it and follow the directions as they are written decreasing the cooking time of the pork by about 5 minutes.
The cooking times and methods that I listed in the instructions result in carrots that are still slightly crisp in the center. If you would prefer softer carrots, then you can cut them into smaller pieces or put them in the oven at the same time as the Brussels sprouts.
As you can see from the images above, the Brussels Sprouts will take up a large part of the pan when they are first added. After cooking for a few minutes they will shrink down enough that they should easily fit on just a third of the sheet pan.
You'll also notice that in the in directions I suggest making an aluminum foil "bowl to cook the pork in. As the pork cooks, it releases some of its juices, and making the bowl prevents these juices from getting on the vegetables.
Be sure that you cook the pork to a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees F. At this temp, the pork may still be slightly pink in the center but it will be safe to eat.
Can I use other vegetables?
YES! That's one of my favorite things about this recipe! You can replace the vegetables with just about anything that you like.
Some of my favorites to add are green beans, asparagus, potatoes, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, or zucchini.
Just be sure to adjust the cooking time for the vegetables that you use. This chart is SUPER helpful and can even be printed for future reference
