One pan meals are simply a godsend for those busy weeknights and with only one pan to clean, the family dish washer on duty will be much happier! I have an amazingly simple, crazy delicious meal for you to add to your recipe rotation: One Pan Pork Tenderloin with Roasted Vegetables.
Weeknights can get pretty busy around here. I know I’m not alone on that one! And with holiday prep in full swing, it seems like our nights are even more hectic than usual which makes it tough to get dinner on the table.
Instead of grabbing some take-out or serving a cold bowl of cereal for dinner (yes, it’s happened;D), I’ve been turning to simple, easy ONE PAN meals for dinnertime and it’s been wonderful! Even on our busiest nights, we are able to sit down and have dinner as a family.
ONE PAN OR ONE SKILLET meals are simply the best because they are so quick and easy to put together, use a handful of simple ingredients, and dinner is on the table in just about 30 minutes! And bonus…since you only use one pan…clean up is a breeze. My kind of kitchen duty!
You can use so many different combinations of ingredients for one pan meals. I like to see what specials are running at my local grocery store and go from there.
This week, our local Food Lion had some Smithfield Marinated 100% Pork in the weekly flyer that caught my eye. There are a variety of flavor options and cuts available that are perfect for one pan meals.
- Roasted Garlic & Herb Pork Loin Filet
- Applewood Smoked Bacon Pork Loin Filet
- Roasted Garlic & Herb Pork Tenderloin
- Roasted Garlic & Cracked Black Pepper Fresh Pork Tenderloin
- Sweet & Smoky Pork Roast
- Boneless Pork Shoulder Seasoned Carnitas (Mexican-style meat)
The Smithfield Marinated Roasted Garlic & Herb Pork Tenderloin was the perfect start for my one pan dinner. The tenderloin comes trimmed and slow-marinated in the bag with the perfect seasonings which is a huge time-saver.
I decided to roast the Smithfield Marinated Roasted Garlic & Herb Pork Tenderloin with some apples, sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts and shallots. Thanks to Smithfield for doing the prep work on the tenderloin, I had everything together and in the oven in just under 10 minutes, and dinner on the table so much faster. Remember, one pan meals are super versatile. You can easily swap out one veggie for another that better suits your family. Not a fan of brussels sprouts…use broccoli or green beans instead!
This meal was a huge success with my family. The pork really delivers on flavor and is seasoned perfectly with just the right balance of spices. Smithfield Marinated Pork makes dinnertime so much easier and helps bring “Real Flavor Real Fast” the dinner table any night of the week.

I actually went back and picked up a Smithfield Marinated Roasted Garlic & Cracked Pepper Pork Tenderloin for dinner next week. Should I grill it? Roast it again? Saute it? The possibilities are endless! If you have a Food Lion near by, be sure to run and pick one up; you (and your family) will be so glad you did. And stop by here to check out other delicious recipe inspirations, or follow Smithfield on Facebook or Twitter.
