Can I use a pork shoulder instead?

Pork shoulder needs to be cooked low and slow because of the density of fat marbling in this particular cut of meat. It lends itself well to slow cooking, smoking, or slow-roasting but not work as well for quick cooking such as this sheet pan recipe. Many people think that pork tenderloin and pork shoulder are interchangeable, but pork tenderloin has less fat and dries out more easily when cooked for long periods.

I can’t find baby potatoes. What type should I use?

Red potatoes are the best substitute for baby potatoes because they are firm, don’t need peeled, and keep their shape when diced and baked. Russet potatoes might work, but they need to be peeled when you dice them, and can get too mushy by the time the pork is baked.

Pork Tenderloin Sheet Pan Recipe Ideas

We love this recipe just as it is, but you might find you want to change things up from time to time and enjoy some variety. It is pretty easy to change up this recipe!

  • Change your winter vegetable. Instead of potatoes, you can use sweet potatoes, butternut squash, or even acorn squash.
  • Try different herbs. Rosemary is one option, but any fresh herb is going to be lovely and add a different flavor profile. Thyme, sage, dill, or basil can all work in this dish. Dry herbs like an Herbs de Provence blend can also work, but you will need to use more since they do not carry as much flavor.
  • Spice things up! Bring some heat with the addition of ancho chili powder, red pepper flakes, diced hot peppers such as habanero peppers, or a dash of hot sauce in the liquid mix.
  • Try different sauce variations. We’ve kept it really simple with vinegar and oil, but that means any vinaigrette could be used as a substitute. You could also purchase a sauce typically used for stir fry or marinade to keep things really easy.

How do I store leftover Pork Tenderloin Sheet Pan Dinner?

Place all of the leftovers in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to three days. If you want an easy meal for someone to take to work, store it in individual portions.

Can I freeze roasted pork tenderloin?

Yes. You can save all of the leftovers in one large container or in individual containers and freeze them for up to three months.

How to reheat Pork Tenderloin Sheet Pan leftovers?

Refrigerated leftovers for this dish can be tossed in a skillet to reheat everything. The microwave can be used for one or two minutes but might dry out the pork or make it chewy.

Frozen leftovers can be reheated in the microwave for two minutes at a time until thawed and thoroughly hot. Reheated pork should be at least 165ºF for safety.
