This is it – we've reached the end of the Sheet Pan Dinner summer series! Last but not least, I'm sharing a super simple meal that has everything you need for a well-rounded, delicious dinner.

This recipe for Sheet Pan Pork Tenderloin was inspired by my sister in law – she made an awesome pork tenderloin dinner during a family vacation last fall that we all loved. It might sound a little strange to include apples in this meal, but it really adds so much to it – just a little hint of sweetness and a hearty, full complement to the pork.

All you need to complete this meal is a little bit of your favorite steak sauce – we used it for dipping both the meat and the veggies. It works really well to add a little bit of a different element to the dish.

Get both your veggies and lean protein in with this sheet pan meal!

A few simple tips…

  • Aluminum foil is your friend! I line my cookie sheets in aluminum foil before putting the meal on to cook each time. Makes clean-up a breeze. I also recommend lightly spraying your aluminum foil with a non-stick spray before adding the meal.
  • Aluminum foil is also helpful to guard against drips in your oven. Most of these frozen meals will be melting off a good bit of condensation when cooking – that can sometimes make for a messy oven (and lots of smoke). To prevent this, use a baking sheet with a 1/2-1″ lip around the edge. If you don't have that, fold the edges of your aluminum foil up to make a lip – that helps!
  • These bag openers are a must-have for prepping these freezer meals. It holds your freezer bag open to make meal assembly so much easier. I normally freeze my meals in these containers for Instant Pot meals, but for storage purposes, gallon freezer bags were my choice for this boot camp – it makes freezer storage much easier.
  • I normally try to put my freezer meals in the fridge the morning of serve day to allow for a little bit of thawing. This allows any ingredients frozen together to break apart and for the meal to cook evenly. If you choose not to do this (and are cooking the meal straight from your freezer), I'd recommend adding 15-20 minutes to your cook time – definitely keep an eye on your meal once the recommend cook time below is over.

    I wanted you to know how much these recipes meant to me. My mother is 83 and she has gotten to where she doesn’t cook anymore because she would have to throw half of it away or eat it for a week. I went home to see her this summer and we made your freezer meals and divided them into 2 meals each. I told her because they are smaller she would have to check on them as the time might not take as long. She calls me all excited because they were delicious and just the right size for her to enjoy! You might do some single meals.

    1. Oh this absolutely makes my night! This is exactly why I do these packs – to make it easier for everyone to enjoy food at home. I have had a few requests for single meal packs – I’ve definitely got that on my future post list. Thanks for the recommendation and the sweet words!
