This chili spiced sheet pan pork tenderloin, apples and brussels sprouts would be a guest worthy, easy meal.
All the work is done in advance and the clean up is a breeze. A chili rub on the pork and brussels sprouts pairs well with sweet cinnamon baked apples. I used honey crisp apples, which are tart and sweet.
Yes, I’m currently obsessed with one pan meals. Thank you for noticing. ☺️ They are sooooo easy. Try one.
I need easy meals because I’m busy packing to move home to Mexico, scheduling last minute appointments, forwarding my mail, getting Biscuit’s pet passport and doing a zillion tasks that have to be done when you are leaving the U.S. for 8 months.
International pet passport template for your vet. Mexico now requires proof of treatment for external and internal parasites within 10 days of travel into Mexico, in addition to an up to date rabies vaccine. Here’s a good summary of requirements for pets entering MX.
Finding and modifying the ingredients
I have to say that I haven’t seen pork tenderloin at the local grocery stores in Loreto but I’m sure you can special order a tenderloin from the local butcher. Pork chops would work just as well but adjust the cooking time. The apples beg for pork but chicken pieces might be delicious too.
Toss everything on a parchment lined sheet pan and sit back and relax with your guests over a sparkling cranberry mocktail. (A splash of cranberry juice and a squeeze of lime in a glass of Topo Chico or other sparkling water.) Pinot Noir would make a nice pairing with this mildly spicy pork and sweet apples.
Try this sheet pan pork tenderloin as a festive Christmas or Thanksgiving meal or make it tonight in less than an hour.
Special diets? Enjoy this chili rubbed pork tenderloin apples and Brussels sprouts on any healthy meal plan for omnivores.
It is paleo, whole 30 and weight watchers friendly. A Keto diet would skip the apples or maybe sneak just a few juicy pieces.
Of course vegetarians can make this sheet pan meal of roasted brussel sprouts and cinnamon apples without meat but you may want to add some protein with quinoa or a combination of grains and legumes for a complete protein.
