Pork Tenderloin One Pot Meal with Peppers and Onions – Quick and Easy – 25 Minutes – Gluten Free

Pork tenderloin One Pot Meal

You can do this one sooo many different ways. Of course the first that comes to mind is the traditional New Jersey style “Sausage and peppers” or you could substitute pieces of chicken instead of the pork tenderloin and on and on…….

……..More often than not the leftovers are just the veggies and it still works just fine for lunch the next day…..

…….This is your go to method to put together a quick and easy one pot meal on a busy weeknight and still have it turn out great.

Using a sharp knife remove the silver skin from the pork tenderloin and cut it crossways into about 3/4″ pieces. We usually get the pork tenderloins that have been coated with herbs and spices and vacuum sealed. Put a large skillet on at medium high with enough olive oil to generously coat the bottom. The veggies are going to absorb some of the oil so you may need to add a little more oil during the cooking process.

Pork Tenderloin One Pot Meal-poppopcooks.com-one pot-quick and easy-gluten free-

While the skillet is heating up cut up the veggies into the size chunks that you want. We like them like this……

The potatoes and the meat are going to take a little bit longer to cook so let’s put them in first and let them get about five minutes head start. Salt, pepper, dried basil and if you want it a little spicier some red pepper flakes. Toss them a few times as they cook.

Pork Tenderloin One Pot meal-3-poppopcooks.com-One Pot-quick and easy-gluten free

Add the rest of the veggies and toss it all together. Then toss a few more times as it all cooks.
