Oven Roasted Pork Tenderloin Tips

  • Lining the pan with foil is optional, but it makes clean-up so much easier! (For photography purposes, I left my pan unlined.)
  • On most pork tenderloin packages, the cook temperature is 425 degrees F. In my opinion, that is too hot. 400 degrees F. allows everything to cook nicely, yet not burn.
  • It’s very important to let the pork tenderloin rest after it is removed from the oven. Put it on a cutting board, cover it with foil, and set your timer for 10 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute, and makes every slice moist & delicious.
  • If you need to feed more than 2 or 3 people, simply double all the ingredients and use two sheet pans.
  • I used Honeycrisp apples, but Gala, Gold Delicious, or Fuji apples would be very good as well.

The thing I like best about this oven roasted pork tenderloin dinner, other than the taste, is the fact that you don’t have to think about it. The ingredients are easy, and the prep is a cinch. After a few minutes of chopping, the entire dinner goes in the oven. So add a pork tenderloin to your grocery list, and give this easy meal a try. Let me know what you think!

    Hi Ann, Made this recipe for 2nd time and just as delicious as the 1st time. Thank you so much. Have a question…I see you mentioned if you need to feed more than 2 double the recipe, do you think it would be okay to get a bigger roast and cut the vegs a little larger since I assume the roast would have to cook longer and if so how long would it take…if you don’t advise this I will just continue to do it the first way….looking forward to hearing from you and I have joined your site to receive more great recipes. Bless You And Keep Safe.

      Hi Joan! If you get a bigger roast, you will definitely have to cook it longer and use a lower temp. For a large pork tenderloin, it’s recommended that you bake it at 325 degrees F for 20 – 25 minutes per pound. The resting temperature when it’s done should be 160 degrees F. So for example, if you get a 3 lb. roast, set the timer for 60 minutes and check the internal temp. to see if it’s done. If not, bake a little longer. Thank you very much for the rating. I appreciate it so much! ~Ann

    Hi Ann, Thank you for the great pork tenderloin recipe. I make this dish often, and love how you paired it with the sweet potatoes, apples and cranberries. What a lovely combination of flavors!!!

    Hi Ann, we love pork tenderloin and I have made so many over the years. I often used them in my cooking classes. Just a suggestion: I always sear my tenderloins first to give them a nice crust and color on the outside and seal the juices in. Also, we only cook to internal temp of 140-145 so that the pork is still a little pink inside and doesn’t dry out. Love your idea of surrounding with squash and apples ~ a great combination.

  6. This recipe is a keeper. Quick, easy and full of flavor!
