Sheet Pan Pork Tenderloin with Ranch Potato Wedges

Sheet pan meals are the undervalued savior of weeknight dinners. When I get home from work I have a hunger & tired toddler who can’t wait for long during meal prep. This is when sheet pan meals SAVE THE DAY!

One pan with a few simple ingredients, minimal prep work, less dishes, and it is still just as delicious as any meal you would spend over an hour on making- sound good?

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 450F (232C). Mix together the ingridents for the marinade in a large bowl. Marinade the pork loin for at least 15 minutes but over night in the fridge for the best flavor! Place the marinaded pork on one side of a baking sheet.

Wash and slice potatoes into thin wedges. Toss potato wedges in olive or avocado oil with the ranch seasoning mix. Line the potato wedges on the other side of the sheet pan in a thin layer with none overlaping.

Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, using tongs to turn the pork over in the sauces every 5-10 minutes. *I like to switch the oven to BROIL for the last 2-3 minutes to brown the pork and potatoes – but watch carefully so it doesn’t burn! Allow pork to rest for 5 minutes before slicing into 1-inch sections and serving.
