I am seriously salivating as I write about this Roasted Pork Tenderloin recipe. It is a flavor-packed and super easy sheet pan dinner that is about to become your new favorite way to enjoy pork. We are talking about tender asparagus and deliciously seasoned pork tenderloins all cooked on just one sheet pan.

I should also add that this is a healthy meal; it is low in calories, low in carbs, and high in protein. #winning

By the way, these one pan meals are my favorite. Less dishes to wash up, and the main course + your side dish cook together to make an incredibly tasty meal in less than an hour. Garlic and Rosemary Balsamic Roasted Pork Tenderloin keeps haunting my dreams in the most one-pan-pork-tenderloin wonderful way right now.

This roasted pork tenderloin includes a favorite combination of garlic, a seasoning rub, and a quick sear to lock in the juices. We pair the lean tenderloin with asparagus, and lay the pork over them while everything cooks together.

  • Before our sheet pan meets the oven, we will first make our seasoning rub that includes paprika, cayenne pepper, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder and dried herbs.
  • Then you want to pierce the meat with a knife all over and stuff some of those piercings with slivers of garlic. Rub the seasoning mixture all around the pork tenderloins and set aside.
  • Heat a skillet (cast iron skillet, preferred) over medium-high heat and add oil to the hot skillet. Place the tenderloins in the hot skillet and sear on one side for two minutes, or until you’ve got a golden crust. Continue to sear the remaining sides for another one to two minutes per side until the whole tenderloin is well-seared.
  • In the meantime, combine the asparagus with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Line a sheet pan with foil and arrange the asparagus down the center of the sheet pan.
  • Lay tenderloins, side by side without touching, lengthwise on top of the asparagus.

  • Roast at 450F until pork registers 140 degrees, about 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Remove from oven; transfer pork to a cutting board, tent a piece of foil over it, and let rest for 10 minutes before cutting and serving.

NOTES

You don’t have to use a sheet pan, and can continue to use your large oven-safe skillet to prepare the entire meal. For the veggies, just arrange the asparagus on the sides of the tenderloins and stir around a few times while they’re cooking in the oven.

Pork tenderloin should be at room temperature before cooking.

Let the tenderloins sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes before you start cooking.

When searing, start with a hot skillet.

For a perfectly seared tenderloin, start with a hot skillet; add in the oil and wait several seconds before adding in the meat.

Pork tenderloin needs to be cooked to 145F internal temperature.

Measuring internal temperature with a thermometer is the best way to measure the doneness of meat.

HOW TO STORE COOKED PORK TENDERLOIN

  • Refrigerate the pork tenderloins in airtight containers for 3 to 4 days.
  • To reheat, preheat oven to 325F and cook the tenderloins for about 30 minutes, or until heated through.
