If you need a few easy things to make for dinner, you’ve come to the right place. This recipe is just one of my easy sheet pan dinners.

Sheet pan dinners save so much time in the kitchen. You are able to cook a pan full of healthy veggies and a filling protein all together on one pan at one time.

Now, who isn’t in the mood for less cooking and fewer dishes?

You’re going to love all of the roasted fall vegetables paired with tender, juicy, perfectly baked pork tenderloin.

What You’ll Love About This Recipe

  • Healthy: Pork tenderloin is up there with chicken breasts when it comes to lean protein sources. It’s much more nutritious than even lean ground beef, and so much easier to cook up. Be sure to buy pork that is ethically sourced and wholesomely raised for max flavor and nutrition.
  • Easy: Talk about easy dinner ideas! This is an absolutely delicious option for an easy weeknight dinner that tastes fancy enough for a special occasion.
  • Freezer-friendly: Bake a few more veggies and add a few more cuts of meat, and boom, you’ve got a freezer dinner to enjoy later. Reheat leftovers in a slow cooker for a comfort food treat at the end of the day.

Recipe Notes

I used butternut squash, red onions, and Brussels sprouts for this easy dinner recipe. You can switch up the vegetables. (If you do not eat pork recipes, no problem! Swap in some chicken, instead!)

If you have something new in the fridge that you just brought home from the farmers’ market, this dinner is the perfect recipe to try it out with. Super healthy, super easy, kid-friendly, and only one cleanup. What else could you want for dinner?

What You’ll Need

Roasted Pork Tenderloin Ingredients

  • Pork Tenderloin: I like to use two or three small pork tenderloins so that I have plenty of leftovers.
  • Butternut Squash: One medium butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and diced.
  • Brussels Sprouts: Four cups of Brussels sprouts, cut into quarters.
  • Red Onion: One red onion, peeled and diced.
  • Seasoning: Salt, pepper, and rubbed sage (I like to use my own Butcher Salt Blend for this recipe. Garlic powder also goes well with this recipe.)
  • Olive oil or avocado oil

Pork Tenderloin Oven Directions

  1. Get ready. Preheat the oven to 425℉ and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare the tenderloin. Mix up the seasoning rub, sprinkle a few teaspoons onto the meat, and give it a good rub. Set the pork tenderloin aside while you cut up the veggies.
  3. Chop the veggies. Peel and dice the butternut squash. Quarter the Brussels sprouts. Peel and quarter the onion. Spread the veggies onto the sheet pan. Sprinkle with a little bit of seasoning and a few teaspoons of oil. Toss.
  4. Roast. Place the pork on a wire rack, and place the wire rack over the veggies. Put the sheet pan into the preheated oven. Roast for about 20 minutes OR until the pork tenderloin reaches an internal temp of 145℉. Use a probe meat thermometer.
  5. Remove the pork tenderloin from the oven. Once the pork tenderloin is finished cooking, remove it from the oven and place it on a platter to rest. You can cover it with aluminum foil.
  6. Finish roasting the veggies. Give the vegetables a quick toss with a pair of tongs. Return the veggies to the oven. Continue to roast the veggies for another 10 to 15 minutes.

Possible Variations

There are so many ways to cook pork tenderloin and veggies in the oven. Here are just a few of my favorite boneless pork loin recipes. Fall fruit and vegetables all go great with roasted pork tenderloin.

  • Potatoes and green beans: Baby potatoes and green beans are always perfect for roasted meat. You can’t go wrong with this easy combination. Just toss the veggies in olive oil, salt, and pepper, and spread them around the baking pan.
  • Panzanella (bread salad): If you have a few cups of leftover bread, you can add it to whatever veggies you are roasting with your pork tenderloin. I recommend placing the meat on a wire rack over the Panzanella before you put the sheet pan in the oven.
  • Apples and onion: There’s no more classic combo than pork, apples, and onion. Use 4-5 apples, cored and sliced, and one sliced onion, and sprinkle the mixture with the same seasoning that you are using on the pork. Savory sweet roasted apples are a real treat.
  • Peaches: Use 4 to 5 peaches, sliced, and about a quarter cup of peach preserves. Season with the same seasoning you will be using to roast the pork tenderloin. You will end up with a delicious savory-sweet peach sauce. This also works with apricots and apricot preserves. YUM!
