The oven does most of the work in this delicious one pan, autumn inspired maple roasted pork tenderloin recipe with Fall veggies!
The perfect Fall meal!
I know that fall doesn't officially start until September 22nd but y'all, I. am. ready. This year's Texas summer has seemed especially restricting with all the COVID related closures of indoor activities. I am ready for some cooler weather and safe outdoor fun, especially for the kids. And most importantly, an end to the mosquitos. Not sure if it's just here but the mosquitos have been insane this year. Ugh.
Anyways, onward to better times ahead! This pork tenderloin with apples and Brussel Sprouts is so delicious, super simple and just screams fall. The pork is marinaded then given a hard sear in a hot skillet before being roasted with fall vegetables. Don't skip the final step of making the pan sauce with all the leftover marinade and pork drippings. It really takes this recipe over the top.
This recipe makes a meal in itself but I love serving it with some boiled sweet potatoes mashed with butter, sour cream, salt, pepper and a pinch of cinnamon to catch all those fabulous juices. So. Good.
How to know if your pork tenderloin is cooked?
No one wants to eat raw meat, but we also don't want dry pork!
As all pork tenderloins vary in shape and size, the best way to tell if your meat is cooked through is by using a meat thermometer.
I like this Oxo Meat Thermometer from Amazon:
What is a safe international temperature for pork tenderloin?
Pork must register an internal temperature of 145 degrees F before it is safe to eat.
