This was the balsamic roasted pork tenderloin on page 72 of the Quickfix cookbook.

It was super-easy and delicious. As a bonus, I found that the Alexia brand sweet potato fries we like cook at the same temperature. (Note-we always have to cook them longer than the package suggests so they’re a little crispy.)
I line the pan with foil and a little cooking spray for fast clean up. They’re yummy, quick and nutritious.
Its also a bonus that they cook at the same oven temp. I get steamed when I need to do a roast and I want to do oven green-beans or some other side with a different cooking temp. If I had the choice I would go for a range with two small ovens so I would have more options.
I’m going to start a list of things we cook often in the oven and their temperatures and keep it on the inside door of a cupboard near the oven. We’ll see if that helps with meal-planning or not…
Alexia does lots of potato-type sides and breads. They’re a yummy treat. They’re at Target and Whole Foods and our local co-op.
The left-over pork was easily stored for two “morph” dinners- pork sloppy joes and pork fried rice.
5/5 stars, will make this again
