While we love juicy grilled pork during the warm summer months, there’s just something about the cool fall weather that begs for tender, flavorful roasted pork tenderloin! Maybe it’s because the rich, earthy flavor of the pork pairs so nicely with autumn root vegetables?

Or maybe it’s because the smell of roasted pork tenderloin, garlic, and fresh herbs makes the entire house smell delicious and cozy?

Whatever the reason, I know that Smithfield® Marinated Pork is one of those easy, quick-fix dinners that I can always count on in a pinch. I pick up the meat at Food Lion (for a great price), and I know that every little boy around our table will devour his meal.

And by adding just a few other seasonal ingredients, I can whip up a delicious one skillet supper in about 30 minutes — no fussing with extra sides or dishes! The veggies cook right along with the meat for “Real Flavor Real Fast!”

With fall officially here, we are incredibly busy with school work, soccer practices, and a multitude of other commitments (I know that you can relate).

That’s why 30-minute meals are a must right now — we just don’t have time to piddle around in the kitchen or plan elaborate feasts. We need to get nourishing and tasty food on the table as quickly as possible!

How To Get Extra Flavorful Pork Tenderloin

By browning the Roasted Garlic & Herb Pork Tenderloin in the skillet first and then transferring it to the oven to finish roasting, I get the best of all worlds: a flavorful herb crust on the outside, a tender and juicy inside, and a supper that cooks quickly!

By dicing the potatoes, onions, and apples into bite-sized pieces, they’re finished cooking in the same amount of time as the meat.

This Roasted Pork Tenderloin is a crowd-pleasing meal that’s earthy, simple, and comforting — everything that an autumn dinner should be!

Top Tips

  • If you have time, allow the pork to rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing this will ensure the meat is extra juicy and tender.
  • Season vegetables with salt and pepper, if desired.
  • Remove rosemary sprigs just before serving.

A fresh, light and delicious roasted pork tenderloin recipe served with apples and sweet potatoes. Ready in only 30 minutes!


  • 1 18.4 ounce Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Herb Pork Tenderloin
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 medium apples peeled and diced into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 small sweet potatoes peeled and diced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 small sweet onion diced
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary


  • Preheat oven to 400F (200C). Place olive oil in a large oven-safe pan (such as a cast iron skillet or a Dutch oven) and heat over medium-high heat.
  • While oil is heating in the pan, peel and chop apples, potatoes, and onion.
  • When the oil in the skillet is hot, add apples, sweet potatoes, and onion. Stir for about 1 minute, and then push to the outsides of the pan to make room for the pork.
  • Place pork in the center of the skillet and brown on all sides (about 5-6 minutes total), while also stirring the fruit and vegetables.
  • When the pork is browned on all sides, tuck the rosemary into the dish and place the dish in the oven. Bake for about 13-15 minutes, flipping pork over and stirring fruit/veggies halfway through. Bake until the center of the pork reaches about 150 degrees F and potatoes are tender.
  • If you have time, allow the pork to rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing. Season vegetables with salt and pepper, if desired. Remove rosemary sprigs just before serving.
