During the fall season when our house becomes super busy with all sorts of school events and other activities, I start trying to think up easy meals for family dinner that are hearty and quick. I’m always looking for simple meals that I can throw together without much prep work, but I also want to serve something that’s filled with flavor I know my family will love. That way, on those busy week nights when we do finally gather together around the dinner table, we can enjoy catching up with one another while actually enjoying a delicious meal I want to serve.
That’s why I love this easy marinated pork tenderloin recipe with root vegetables. It’s made using a Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork Tenderloin from Kroger that is 100% fresh pork and filled with delicious flavor. I love that they can be easily roasted, sautéed, or slow cooked without any extra prep work. They’re already marinated and ready for roasting. Even better, Smithfield at Kroger offers several varieties, making dinner possibilities endless! Just choose your family’s favorite flavor.

The pork is absolutely delicious served with all sorts of sides and vegetables, but I love to serve it with root vegetables for a fabulous meal in the fall. Let me just say, the Roasted Garlic and Cracked Black Pepper Tenderloin smells absolutely wonderful while roasting in the oven. As soon as it started roasting, my husband joined me in the kitchen and stood guard. I didn’t think he was going to be able to wait for it, even though it only took 30 minutes to make!
If you’re looking for an easy pork tenderloin recipe, this is a must-try for dinner this fall. It makes preparing dinner so much faster and the marinated tenderloin is one you’ll want to serve with all sorts of sides again and again. Here’s how I like to serve mine.
