This post is sponsored by the Wisconsin Pork Association. As always, all opinions are honest and my own.

       Succulent pork tenderloin is a perfect way to get dinner on the table. This easy sheet pan meal makes the entree and the sides all at once. It is quick enough for a weeknight meal but nice enough to serve to guests. You are going to love it!

     
     It is important to me to to get a nice dinner on the table for my family. Little Dude frequently tells me I'm the best cook in the whole world, so I have a reputation to uphold!

      The thing is I don't want to have to miss out on all of the fun to get it done. If there's a water balloon fight going on in the yard, I don't want to be stuck in the kitchen.

      That is why I love a good sheet pan meal. There is a little prep to get it ready, but then it's hands off.

       Plus there aren't a ton of dishes to clean. A bowl and a sheet pan is about it.

       The resulting flavor will never let on that you were still out in the yard playing though. It is absolutely delicious.

       If you've had a bad experience with dry chewy pork in the past, let me promise you it doesn't have to be that way.

       We've all had that experience where it was overcooked to the point of having the texture of shoe leather. It is perfectly safe to cook your pork to an internal temperature of 145℉.

       Your tastebuds and your chompers are going to appreciate it if you start using a meat thermometer and follow this advice. A slight blush of pink is safe, tender and delicious!

       I am telling you, this pork tenderloin almost melts in your mouth it is so good. You have to give it a try.

      Whip up the marinade in the morning and let the tenderloins soak up all of that flavor. Then at dinner time you just have to clean the green beans and cut the potatoes.

      A quick toss with some oil and seasonings and you'll be ready to rock and roll. The tenderloins sit right on top of the green beans to help keep them moist.

     The potatoes come out tender and delicious and those green beans have the added flavor from the pork. It all comes together in a meal that is worthy of the spotlight.

      Sit back and enjoy the praise as you eat your dinner. You deserve it!

Benefits of using Pork Tenderloin in this recipe:


  • Pork tenderloin cooks quickly and as the name suggests is super tender, making it perfect for a quick sheet pan meal. 
  • Pork tenderloin is lean.  In fact, it is as lean a boneless chicken breasts an meats government guidelines for extra-lean. (source: pork.org)
  • The results are absolutely delicious, and after all that is what we are after!

Are you sure it's ok to eat pork that isn't super well done?

Yes! It is really ok! Use a digital thermometer to measure the temperature at the thickest part of the meat. Once you reach at least 145℉, remove it from the heat and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing it. You will have the most tender and delicious pork you've ever tasted!

But why is it ok now? I've always been told that you have to cook pork to well done?

The way farmers raise pigs has changed. Advancements in technology, and farming methods have transformed the way pigs are raised.

Yet one thing remains constant for farmers: their mission to produce safe, nutritious food in a responsible manner. On farms large and small, livelihoods are tied to the land and to the health of animals in a farmer's care.

Farmers realize that raising healthy pigs by using good farming practices results in safe, high quality pork products. More information about pig farming is available at PorkCares.org.

Great ideas for any leftovers

  • The leftover pork is great sliced and put on a slider bun for a sandwich. It is good hot or cold!
  • It would be great on a pizza with caramelized onions and Gruyere cheese. 
  • Chop it into a delicious salad. The pork would be great with some diced apples, pecans, greens and cheese!
