Make

  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.
  2. Toss Brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes with first part of oil and some salt and pepper. Spread out on a sheet pan. Transfer sheet pan to oven and roast vegetables for 10 minutes.
  3. While vegetables get started roasting, heat a large skillet with second part of oil over medium-high heat. Add pork and sear on all sides until deep golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes total.
  4. Remove vegetables from the oven and give them a stir. Place pork tenderloin in the center, nestling it between the vegetables. Return sheet pan to the oven and continue roasting until vegetables are tender and pork registers 145F / 63C, 13 to 16 minutes.
  5. While pork and vegetables roast, return skillet you used to cook the pork to the stovetop. Reduce heat to medium. Add white parts of green onions and butter to heated skillet. Saute for 2 minutes. Whisk in flour.
  6. Slowly pour stock into skillet while whisking, scraping up any browned bits on the bottom of the pan. Continue cooking, whisking frequently, until sauce thickens, 3 to 4 minutes.
  7. Remove skillet from heat and whisk in lemon juice, mustard, and green parts of green onions. Taste and season with some salt and pepper.
  8. When pork and vegetables are finished, transfer pork to a cutting board and let rest, covered, for 5 minutes.
  9. Slice pork and serve with vegetables. Spoon pan sauce over everything. Enjoy!

Use 1.5 times the spices. I also didn't have fresh green onions, so I cooked freeze dried chives into the butter and it was 🔥🔥. 😋

The pan sauce feels so decadent but the whole meal is very simple to make. It’s really delicious and not something I would’ve made on my own.

Very tasty! We made extra sauce and doubled the spices on the pork, although I think 1 & 1/2 times the spice proportion would also work. I really liked the sweet/savory contrast between the pork and the sweet potato.

This one was not too complicated and pretty basic flavor wise. My husband wasn’t a huge fan of the sauce. We aren’t huge pork people so that could be it too. But overall it was a decent meal.
