Maple Apple Pork Tenderloin

Maple Apple Pork Tenderloin

Ceri and I have been talking a lot about no recipe recipes–Methods for dishes like pancakes, pizza, grain bowls, risottos and other meals that you just have the ratios for committed to memory and, therefore, can make without thought or hassle. Having ratios for simple dishes in your memory bank can make cooking for a family easier and we’re always on-board with strategies that can help with that. In our latest book, we have recipes for mixes of common pantry staples like muffins, biscuits and pancakes. For the site, we’re looking to create more non-recipes so you can learn the ratios for the dishes you love to make your family. In the meantime, we’re still attracted to sheet pan dinners. Not just the Instagram food trend du jour, a sheet pan supper is a busy families shortcut to dinner. 

Our latest sheet pan supper is this Maple Apple Pork Tenderloin with roasted potatoes, carrots and apple. We piled this dinner with flavours and items that appeal to kids as well as a protein that cooks up fast on a weeknight. The tang from the dijon mustard and sweetness from the maple syrup are comforting flavours and, like we said, it’s all made on one sheet pan. I guess you could say this one is worth committing to memory.
