Roasted pork loin with sweet potatoes and Brussels is easy to prepare and perfect for busy nights when you want a quick and healthy meal!
My whole family loves pork, and I love a sheet pan dinner, so my Dijon and thyme roasted pork loin makes everyone happy!
When you want dinner on the table quick, pork is your answer! It cooks very quickly and has a mild flavor that goes well with so many other things. You can prepare it in an InstaPot, grill, roast, or sauté for a quick and easy meal.
The secret to a perfect sheet pan dinner is using ingredients that cook in the same amount of time.
Smithfield All Natural Fresh Pork has no added steroids, hormones or artificial ingredients. It’s proudly raised in the USA by Smithfield farm families and hand-selected based on coloring and marbling.
I adore the combination of sweet potatoes and brussels sprouts, so you’ll see them in a lot of my sheet pan dinners. I recently watched a chef prepare and serve charred green onions at a cooking competition, and I’ve been obsessed with them ever since. The white part gets soft and tender, and the tops are like onion chips. So good! The garlic mellows and softens as it cooks, so don’t ten cloves scare you off. They’re delicious!
The awesome thing about this recipe is that everything cooks on one pan. For even easier cleanup, line the baking sheet with a couple of layers of aluminum foil.
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Remove the pork from the package and dry it with paper towels.
Spray the baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and place the pork in the middle.
In a small bowl, mix the sauce ingredients and brush it over the pork, making sure to use it all.
In a large bowl, toss the sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts, green onions, and garlic with the olive oil, salt, and pepper.
Arrange the veggies all around the pork loin.
An instant-read thermometer is a must when cooking pork!
Place the baking sheet on the middle rack of the oven and bake for 30 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 135°.
Turn the oven up to broil and cook for an additional 5-7 minutes or until the top is nicely browned. If desired, place two lemon halves on the pan (flesh side up) before broiling.
Remove the pork from the oven and let it rest for 15 minutes. As it rests, the carryover cooking should bring it up to 145°F, which is the safe cooking temperature for pork. Be sure to check it with an instant-read meat thermometer – a kitchen essential!
If desired, sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley before serving.
- Swap out the vegetables with whatever you like. Be sure that everything can cook in the same amount of time.
- If you don’t like mustard, you could swap it out for barbecue sauce and make a sweet, barbecue type glaze.
- Pork loins vary in size, so you may have to adjust the cooking time.
- If you have leftover pork, my favorite way to use it up is in pork fried rice!
