Easy Weeknight Sheet Pan Pork Loin Filet

pork loin filetI love this dinner. Not only is it Advocare, Whole-30, and clean eating friendly, it is fast for a weeknight and my whole family will eat it! I have been seeing “sheet pan” dinners left and right on the internet, but I didn’t really get how great they are for a one-pan, easy way to get dinner on the table. My fellow Sunday Supper blogger, A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures posted a  Sheet Pan Tuscan Pork Dinner, that I absolutely loved, and since I tried it, I am now totally sold on the greatness of this meal! It has just 3 ingredients! Yes. I said, “3.”

Since my objective is FAST dinner and EASY dinner, I shortened her recipe up a bit by using an already seasoned pork loin, and using regular russet potatoes instead of baby ones, since I always have them on hand. I also have a fear of under cooked pork (and pretty much all other meat!) and so I cook mine until a kitchen thermometer inserted in the center of the pork registers at 160ºF.

Here it is in all its simplicity:

Easy Weeknight Sheet Pan Pork Loin

I love this fast dinner that cooks in one pan in less than an hour with almost no prep.

Ingredients

  • 1 packaged pork loin filet (24oz) (I used the lemon/garlic seasoned one)
  • 4-5 large russet potatoes
  • 1 16 ounce bag frozen brussel sprouts (or broccoli, or cauliflower, or a bag of fresh baby carrots)
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400*
  2. Line a large rimmed sheet pan with foil, and spray with non-stick or rub with oil.
  3. Place the pork filet in the middle of the pan.
  4. Place the potatoes on one side of the pork. Drizzle with 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Sprinkle with 1/2 tsp.garlic powder, and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
  5. Cook the pork and potatoes for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven.
  6. Add the frozen vegetables to the other side of the pork. Sprinkle the other 1/2 tsp. of garlic powder and season with salt and pepper.
  7. Add the pan back to the oven and cook for 20-30 minutes or until the pork is at 160*
  8. Remove from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes.
  9. Slice the pork into 1/2 inch slices and serve with potatoes and veggie.

Notes

You can serve whatever type of veggies that you love here, and you can also use a plain pork loin filet if you want too, you will just need to season with your own favorite blend of spices to give it some flavor.

My kids actually really loved this. My pickiest of eaters ate it too…though drenched in applesauce, which is my family’s favorite condiment- so weird. But they liked it. And I am making sheet pan dinners from now on. I just threw it in the oven and set the timer- I got to clean up the kitchen or play a game of war with the kids while we were waiting- totally low-stress. That’s the part I liked the best. I am sold– sheet pan dinner, you are my new favorite weeknight meal!pork loin filet
