- This serves 3-4 people if you are feeding a larger crown double the recipe and place the tenderloin and vegetables on a large sheet pan lined with aluminum foil for easy cleanup.
- I like to use a cast iron pan for this dish, it gets nice and hot and provides a great sear.
- Use a Meat Thermometer to ensure that the pork is cooked to the proper temperature of 145 degrees, insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the pork.
- Always make sure the pork rests for 5-10 minutes before slicing.
Pork tenderloin is the smaller of the two and usually comes in a package with two that weigh 1- 1.5 pounds each. It's lean meat and does best when cooked quickly. The loin cut is wider and flatter and usually also boneless with a thick fat cap on one side.
Use a Meat Thermometer to ensure that the pork is cooked to the proper temperature of 145 degrees, insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the pork.
Yes if you would like to swap out the veggies you can try small baby carrots, Brussels sprouts cut in half, or even sweet potatoes, just make sure they are all about 1 inch in size so they cook evenly.
Just sear the pork tenderloin as instructed then transfer the pork to a baking dish or baking sheet.
