I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #FallFlavors recipes. All opinions are mine alone.
Sheet Pan Maple Pecan Pork Tenderloin is a dish to impress! Sweet from the maple and nutty from the pecans make a delicious combination of flavors and textures. The pecans are roasted crisp and maple caramelizes the nuts and the pork. A perfect fall meal!
Today is day 3 of the Fall Flavors event, and I am sharing something savory with you. This time of year I tend to have a lot of sweet recipes, and I love all the treats but sometimes it is nice to have a savory option on the menu! I am working with a company called Millican Pecan Co. This company is really neat because it has been a family business for 5 generations. Originally founded as the West Texas Pecan Nursery in the late 1800's, Millican Pecan is still producing delicious products- like the Pecan Pieces I used for this recipe!
I absolutely adore this pork recipe. I toss the pecans in a bit of syrup and brown sugar then pour over a seasoned pork tenderloin to roast. The pecan and maple are almost like a pecan pie filling, and the nuts get nice and toasted on top of the pork.

Frequently Asked Questions

Once you have reached the desired internal temperature, remove from heat and let it rest for three minutes.
My maple and brown sugar is burning- is that normal?

I love pork, but always over cook its- any tips:
