One of the easiest ways to get dinner on the table fast is to fall in love with sheet pan dinners. The protein and vegetables get cooked right in the same pan. And if you’re using foil, clean-up is a breeze! There are so many different ways to cook a sheet pan meal, but this sheet pan pork tenderloin with vegetables is one of my favorites.

Two pork tenderloins are seasoned with a flavorful dry rub and placed on a pan with mixed vegetables and hearty potatoes. It’s then roasted in the oven at a high temperature to cook both the protein and veggies at the same time. 
What takes this meal to the next level is the homemade jam sauce. Sweet apricot jam is mixed with garlic, balsamic, and herbs to make a sweet and savory sauce that pairs well with pork. It’s a decadent meal that can be served on a busy weeknight or for a dinner party with a glass of Elderflower Smash.

How to Make // The Steps

Step 1: Prepare for baking: Preheat the oven to 450F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. 

Step 2: Season the pork: Mix the dry seasonings into a bowl and stir to combine. Pat the pork with a paper towel and rub dijon mustard on it, then add half of the dry seasonings. Place seasoned pork in the middle of the prepared sheet pan

Step 3: Season the vegetables: Chop vegetables and potatoes, then add them to the bowl with the remaining seasonings and toss to combine.

Step 4: Assemble and bake: Distribute the seasoned vegetables around the pork tenderloin, then place the sheet pan in the oven for 15 minutes and flip the pork using tongs. Continue to roast for another 10-15 minutes or until the internal temperature of the pork reaches 145F. 
Step 5: Make the jam sauce: While the pork is roasting, make the jam sauce by adding oil to a saucepan over medium heat. Cook garlic for 1 minute, then add the remaining ingredients and stir until combine. Taste and adjust seasonings.

Tips & Tricks //

  • If you don’t have fresh thyme and rosemary available, you can use dried seasonings. 
  • When pork is finished cooking, it’s important to let it rest for 10 minutes to redistribute the juices in order to keep it tender when slicing. 
  • The oven must be no cooler than 450F to make sure the pork and the vegetables cook at the same time. The longer a pork tenderloin roasts, the higher the risk for drying it out. 
  • Make sure you cut your vegetables all roughly the same size to make sure they cook evenly.
  • To make sure potatoes cook through, cut them in ½ inch cubes or small wedges. Yukon gold potatoes are best because they cook quickly. 
  • To ensure your pork tenderloin is fully cooked, use a kitchen thermometer and measure in the thickest part. A safe temperature for pork tenderloin is 145F.
