The marinade for this pork tenderloin is absolutely scrumptious

How to make Roast Pork Tenderloin with Potatoes

  • Be sure you buy pork tenderloins and not pork loins. The tenderloins are smaller in size and much more tender.
  • You’ll make a simple marinade-rub to coat the pork tenderloin with. No chill time needed with this recipe. It gets to go straight into the oven, alongside of the baby potatoes and carrots.
  • Plenty of fresh herbs and spices make this roast pork tenderloin recipe taste fabulous.
  • Often, pork tenderloin does best with an initial short stint in the oven under high heat. We won’t be doing that here, as that can cause the pork tenderloin to be done way before the veggies are.
  • Since our goal is for the entire pan of goodies to finish cooking at roughly the same time, we allow the pork tenderloin to go at 350F with the rest of the ingredients.
  • If your pork tenderloin is fully cooked before the veggies are done, you can simply remove the tenderloin and keep it warm while the veggies finish their beautiful browning in the oven.

New recommendations for pork tenderloin: 145F internal center temperature

How Long do you cook pork tenderloin?

We have debated this for years now, with some leaning towards old school conservative cook times and others advocating new school (is that a phrase yet?) cook times that allow for slightly pink pork.

But. I think we’ve finally settled on a similar conclusion as the majority of pork-cooking chefs. USDA Guidelines have officially lowered pork cooking temperature  to 145F internal center temp, followed by a 3-minute rest time at room temp. When the pork rests at room temp after roasting, its internal temp will continue to rise several degrees, and often land around 150-155F. That’s pretty perfect for a juicy, tender, succulent roast pork tenderloin.

You’ll definitely want to grab yourself a faithful meat thermometer, if you don’t already have one. It comes in handy for all your future roasts.

Let cooked pork rest several minutes before slicing, as this helps retain juiciness.

Ingredients  

Instructions

  • Prepare Preheat oven to 350F with rack on lower middle position. Line a large baking pan with foil and generously grease foil. Use paper towels to pat-dry all excess moisture from the pork tenderloins; place tenderloins in center of greased-foiled pan and set aside.
  • Combine: In a large bowl, combine olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, garlic, onion, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Use a whisk to combine well to form the marinade. Reserve 1/3 cup of the marinade in separate small bowl. Add potatoes and carrots to the marinade in large bowl and toss to combine well.
  • Season: Evenly drizzle the reserved 1/3 cup marinade over the pork, ensuring all sides are coated. Place potato/carrot mixture evenly around the pork tenderloins, ensuring that all marinade is evenly dispersed.
  • Cook: Roast in oven 45-50 minutes, OR until pork reaches internal temp of 145F when tested in the thickest center portion. The correct thermometer allows you to monitor the rising temperature without disturbing the roast. Actual cook time will vary according to oven. If pork is done before veggies, carefully use tongs to transfer pork to a platter and tent with foil to keep warm at room temp.
  • Veggies: If potatoes/carrots need to cook longer, bump up the oven temp to 425F and continue roasting veggies until nicely browned and tender – check often for doneness. Actual cook time depends on the size of cut pieces.
  • Rest and Slice: always allow roasts to rest at room temp at least 5-10 minutes before slicing. The temp will continue to rise during resting; juices will re-disperse throughout the roast during rest period.  Slice pork and drizzle with any pan sauces that remain. Serve with potatoes and carrots.

Notes

  • Balsamic vinegar quality and flavor varies widely between brands; we recommend using a high-quality balsamic vinegar that’s rich, thick, sweet, and fruity – it balances out the acidity. If you love your choice of balsamic vinegar, use the full 6 tablespoons. 
  • Do a taste test: if your balsamic vinegar is rather acidic, either use less of it OR balance it out by adding more honey.
  • This recipe is meant for pork tenderloins, which are much more tender and smaller in size than pork loin. 
  • In order for the potatoes and carrots to cook properly, you’ll need to cut them smaller than you may be used to.

    I have made this dinner twice now and we love it! The last time I made it, I used a separate sheet pan for the potatoes and carrots and put them in the oven to bake for a half hour before the meat. On the sheet pan with the pork, I added broccoli on that pan. The timing ends up pretty even this way. Thank you for wonderful recipe!

      You’re so welcome, Jill!

    I accidentally used honey MUSTARD instead of the honey. in the marinade. Awaited a taste with trepidation. It was delicious! Will be sticking with it. Took the pork out at 45 minutes, tented, kept warm, bumped the temp up to 425 for another 10 minutes or so. to finish the vegies – to which I added small onion wedges. This will be a regular on our winter menus. Thanks for sharing!

      That’s awesome, Lilith! I love those accidental-rewards! SO glad you loved it!

    Can I brown the pork before putting it in the oven?

      • Amy Dong

      You can brown the pork on stovetop first, if you’d like.

    • Michelle Radford

    Could you do this in a slow cooker? If so, how long and on what temp would you cook it?

    • Barbara

    Making this for Thanksgiving. I also want to use sweet potatoes, but was wondering how many? Would two peeled and cut up be enough?

      • Amy Dong

      If you’re subbing out the regular potatoes, then use 2lbs. If adding sweet potatoes, 1 large or 2 small ones would be fine.

    • Penny Hill

    I plan on making this, but what would you suggest in place of the fresh or dried rosemary? A family member absolutely hates rosemary anyway it comes.

    thank you ~

      • Amy Dong

      You can use almost any favorite herb – thyme, sage, oregano are great options.

    Loved this recipe. I used sweet potatoes and regular potatoes and carrots. I was a little worried about the amount of garlic but it was wonderful i also used 2tbsp honey and 2.maple syrup along with 4. Tbsp of balsamic vinegar. I didn’t have fresh rosemary so I used 2. Tsp of dried. Cooked for 50 minutes. Perfect. Thanks for the recipe
