A hearty, one-pan meal that's ready in just 50 minutes, our roasted pork loin dinner includes bacon, Brussels sprouts and red potatoes.
To reduce to roasting time, you can cut the vegetables and the pork into smaller pieces. Cut the Brussels sprouts into 1/4-inch slices, cut the potatoes into 1/2-inch cubes, and cut the pork loin into 1/2-inch-thick slices. You can then shorten the roasting time to 20 to 25 minutes and eliminate the resting time for the pork.
It is important to let roasted meats rest before slicing so that the juices in the meat can redistribute themselves throughout the roast. If you slice the roast prematurely all those flavorful juices will just run right out onto your cutting board. Also, the roast actually continues to cook after being removed from the oven. Tent the roast with aluminum foil to keep it from cooling down while resting.
If you’re not a fan of Brussels sprouts, you can substitute cubed butternut squash.
