WHAT’S COVERED IN THIS POST
How to Make Tender Pork Tenderloin
Spoiler alert – I’ve served plenty of tough, dry pork tenderloins in my day. So much so that I quit buying this cut of meat years ago.
Then, I went to a lunch and learn presentation by Thermador appliances. The chef served a delicious pork tenderloin made in the convection steam oven. That sparked a renewed interest in pork tenderloin.
The great thing about this sheet pan pork tenderloin recipe is that you don’t need a convection steam oven for a juicy tenderloin!
By placing the pork over the green beans, the steam released as the beans cook keeps the tenderloin moist. This creates a perfectly roasted tenderloin that’s browned on the outside, and moist and tender inside.
Pork Tenderloin and Green Beans
Fresh green beans are always best, but you’ll get similar results with frozen. Avoid the petite or smaller green beans in favor of regular sized frozen green beans. The smaller green beans tend to come out soggier.
Pork Tenderloin and Potatoes
I’ve used both russet and tiny red potatoes in this recipe with great results. And, any type of potato will work here.
Pro Tip: Use parchment paper or foil on your sheet pan to minimize clean up.
Keep the potatoes to about 2 inches in diameter so that they roast properly. If you use sweet potatoes, cube them to 1 inch in diameter as they take longer to roast.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Place your pork loin fat side up in your roasting pan. By having the fat on top, you’re allowing the fat layer to baste the roast as it cooks. This is the step that keeps the pork from becoming dry and tough! Cook the pork loin for 10 minutes in the 400-degree oven.
Do you cover pork tenderloin when roasting? Initially, you don’t. You should place it in the hot oven and roast until an instant-read thermometer registers 145 degrees F (medium), 20-30 minutes. If roasting for longer than 20 minutes, cover the pork loosely with foil to prevent the top from burning.
You don’t need to pan-sear the pork tenderloin if your oven has a grill that you can utilize. Starting out by grilling the pork tenderloin is going to be just fine. You can still finish it off with roasting after the skin has browned properly using the grilling method.
