Pork Tenderloin with Creamy Dijon Sauce

About This Recipe:

Sheet pan dinners are the way to go for a busy weekday night dinner. This baked pork tenderloin recipe is super simple, but looks and tastes pretty upscale. Just place all of your ingredients on one large sheet pan, put it in the oven, and dinner is basically done. The creamy dijon sauce comes together in under 10 minutes, and is so rich and decadent that you won’t believe it’s made with just a touch of cream and butter, and mostly chicken stock. I think mashed potatoes and string beans are the perfect companions to this dish, but rice pilaf, broccoli, etc would also be amazing!
