Pork tenderloin with Brussel sprouts and button mushrooms


700 g pork tenderloin
4 cloves garlic, chopped
60 g brown sugar
1/3 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
2 tbs soy sauce
2 tbs balsamic vinegar
800 g Brussel sprouts
40 ml olive oil
1 tsp Italian blend herbs
1 tsp garlic powder
1tsp sea salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
80 g grated Parmesan cheese
400 g whole button mushrooms


1. Pat tenderloin dry with a paper towel.
2. Whisk together garlic, brown sugar, red pepper flakes, paprika, soy sauce and balsamic vinegar.
3. Place the pork tenderloin in the center of the foil, folding up the sides about 2 inches from the edge to make a "tray". Pour the marinade over pork tenderloin, then turn the tenderloin over a couple of times to make sure all sides are coated. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes at 220°C, using tongs to turn the pork over in the sauces every 5-10 minutes.
4. Arrange Brussel sprouts on the other half of the sheet pan (non-foil half). Drizzle with oil, toss to coat, then season with salt and pepper, Italian herbs, garlic powder, and Parmesan cheese. Bake for 15 minutes. Add button mushrooms and switch the oven to GRILL. Brown the pork and vegetables for 5 minutes. Allow pork to rest for 5 minutes before slicing it and serving.


This extremely tender, succulent, and healthy pork tenderloin recipe needs little effort, but gives big results.
