Perfectly Tempting Pork Tenderloin

I just have to say before I share this recipe, that if you love food (OK, who doesn't?), but don't enjoy cooking or cleaning up, you MUST get a Ninja!  Not only can slow cook, bake, roast and more with it.  But it comes with an awesome recipe booklet which was the start of this recipe.  OK, now that I've given the appropriate shout out to my favorite kitchen tool,  I will share my recipe based off their "Herb-Roasted Pork Tenderloins & Potatoes" recipe.

Perfectly Tempting Pork Tenderloin

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 45 minutes

  • 1 1/2 pounds red potatoes, cut in quarters (or eighths)
  • 1 large onion, cut into wedges
  • 1 1/2 - 2 pounds baby carrots
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons smoked chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoons Himalayan sea salt
  • 1 large pork tenderloin (about 3 pounds)
  • 1 1/2 C chicken broth

  1. Combine chili and garlic powders, cumin and salt.
  2. Cut potatoes, onion and carrots and combine in a large bowl.  Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of seasoning mixture.  Toss to coat.  (If you are not using a Ninja, go ahead and toss in a roasting pan.)
  3. Rub the pork with the remaining Tablespoon of olive oil and the remaining seasoning.
  4. Place the tenderloin in your Ninja pot and cook for about 10 minutes on the STOVETOP setting.  (If you do not a Ninja, you can do this in a skillet.)  Cook until it's browned on all sides, then remove from the pot.
  5. Pour the chicken broth into the pot.  Add in the potatoes, carrots and onion mix.
  6. Set the roasting rack on top and add the browned tenderloin onto the rack.
  7. Cover and cook at 375, checking after the first 20 minutes or so.
  8. Make sure pork is cooked through.

Final Meals Prepped for the week!
Servings: Depending on the time of day, grab 1 Yellow of potatoes with 1 Green of carrots (about 8-10 depending on the size) and 1 Red of tenderloin (about 2 slices depending on the thickness).  I had about 8 servings if eating this way, but I like to use the tenderloin for sandwiches and wraps too!

Alternatives: Use any of the 21 Day Fix Seasonings to season this recipe.
