This Sheet Pan BBQ Pork Tenderloin Will Make You a Dinner Hero14 maja 2019
While mild-mannered pork tenderloin can be paired with just about any kind of sauce or flavor combo, you’ll be hard-pressed to find one more irresistible than smoky-sweet BBQ sauce. Not only does a generous slick of sauce brushed over the meat keep it super tender and juicy, but the warm aroma of the spices also seeps into the pork as it roasts. Toss it on a sheet pan with a couple of veggies for a one-pan meal, and in less than 30 minutes you’ll be tucking into dinner.
Skip the Sear and Go Straight to the Oven
While I used to always sear pork tenderloin in a skillet before finishing it in the oven, I recently learned there’s an easier way to get this family favorite on the table (even Ina agrees!). All you need to do is brush it with some sauce, then slide it onto a sheet pan and into the fiery-hot oven.
Since the pork takes longer to cook than the veggies, you’ll want to cook it part of the way through first, then flip the tenderloin, add the veggies to the sheet pan, and send it back to the oven. Those final minutes of cooking are just enough to get the green beans and cauliflower wonderfully tender with gently charred edges.
