I’m all about sheet pan meals, especially in the winter months! Today’s recipe has been prepared about a dozen times, shared with good friends and great conversation. This Balsamic Pork Loin recipe is a knock-your-socks off dinner that would be perfect for any occasion.
In fact, it is such a cinch to prepare that I double it each time I make it for our family. No joke!
There are a few tricks I use to make preparation and clean-up a little easier. This little gadget (only $17) has made chopping garlic and herbs take seconds instead of minutes when preparing this, or any other dish with a marinade. I have such a small amount of storage in my kitchen that everything must be used and used often. I can tell you that this one is on my counter almost every day while I prepare our meal. It has saved me from A LOT of chopping this year.
The second, don’t be afraid to switch this one up and make it with your own with your own favorite vegetables. I have made this same dish with whatever produce we have on hand- baby potatoes, sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts, and carrots…just to name a few. If you have produce that needs to get to work in the kitchen, this is the recipe to do it with.
The third trick is lining your cookie sheets with parchment paper. I do the REALLY lazy way and buy these ready-to-go sheets for preparing our weeknight sheet pan meals. Anything that I can do to cut down my clean-up time is worth it, in my opinion.
The last trick, and probably the most important one, is to make sure that you use your meat thermometer to make sure the pork is cooked perfectly. The USDA recommends cooking pork to 160 degrees! I like to pull it out just a bit before that at 150 degrees because it will continue to cook while it is at rest!
Isn’t that a beauty? Since it is easy to double, it is SO EASY to share. This has been my new go-to for anyone who is need of a meal. Pair it with this brown bag idea for giving! Who wouldn’t feel touched by that?
Be sure to put the leftovers to work too! The meat with a little pesto on top makes a mean slider and I love to reheat the veggies as a morning side with my eggs.
