Alright, listen up folks. This right here is a dinner you’re going to want to make IMMEDIATELY. This is a simple, colorful dinner that you can get on the table in record time.

What to serve with Pork Tenderloin
I love Scalloped Potatoes, but I’m also RATHER fond of this mashed potato recipe, as well as this absolutely delicious Creamy Garlic Parmesan Risotto. Green beans are also a great side. Check out these sautéed green beans!
After the pork is done, and resting – a little pan gravy is a super easy way to make a killer finishing touch. Plus, making gravy in the same pan you cooked your pork in, means you get alllll the flavor from the pork right there in the gravy.
Place the pan on the stove over medium-high, and sprinkle a little flour over the top of the pan juices, and make a paste. Whisk in the stock, and some salt/pepper to taste, and let it thicken. Ta-da!!
Why this recipe works:
- Super easy to make, just sear and throw your skillet right in the oven. Slice and serve!
- Under 30 minutes of cooking time.
- Family friendly. Everyone loves this one!
