Pork Tenderloin is a quick & easy dinner option, and when you marinade it in maple syrup it becomes a perfect cool weather dinner that will warm you right up. I made this for a family dinner and it was a HUGE hit!
First… let’s talk Veggies
I wanted to use veggies that were in season & that would go nicely with the maple and apple cider vinegar marinade. Being it is Fall I went with brussels sprouts, apples and onions. You could use butternut squash, potatoes (sweet or russet), acorn squash, carrots… really the possibilities are endless.
The key is to season them and make sure you cut them small enough so they can roast in time with the pork, so cut the potatoes and hard squash smaller. If using something like mushrooms you could add those in towards the end so they don’t burn.
The Maple Marinade though…
What really makes this recipe so special is the marinade. It is a mixture of maple, apple cider vinegar, mustard and few other things that really make this marinade something so special. Not only is the pork marinaded but the veggies get a quick marinade as well.
Oh and the marinade gets turned into a super rich gravy that really becomes the star!!
Bringing it all together
As I mentioned I made this family dinner. The pork and veggies was the center but I also served my Spiced Cranberry Sauce and my Stuffed Honeynut Squash. Let me tell you it was a dinner to remember for sure. It was also super easy to pull together.
I had prepared the squash the day before and I made the cranberry sauce the day before. I marinaded the pork over night and then all I had to do was sear the pork, chop the veggies and roast it. Super simple but it looked like I spent HOURS in the kitchen.
Break out the maple syrup!
Maple Roasted Pork & Veggies
This One Pan Pork & Veggie dinner is the perfect family dinner. It will serve up to 8 and is even better the next day. Use whatever veggies you have on hand.
