Pork Tenderloin and Root Veggie Tray-Bake

with Gravy

Players looking to stay in game shape during the off-season should know the importance of how eating healthy plays into the equation. Eating right not only gives your body the fuel it needs for physical activity but also promotes recovery and growth. 

HelloFresh brings healthy, easy-to-make meals to the kitchens of busy hockey families that come with step-by-step instructions. Knowing what you'll be making and how long it will take is information valuable to anybody as busy as a hockey parent by creating stress-free dinners for the week.

1. Prep

Strip sage leaves from steams, then finely chop 1 tbsp (dbl for 4 ppl). Peel, then cut onion into 1-inch pieces. Cut potatoes into 1/2-inch pieces. Peel, then cut carrot into 1/4-inch rounds. Peel, then mince or grate garlic.

2. Roast pork

Remove the pan from heat. Transfer pork to the baking sheet, placing on top of veggies. Roast in the middle of the oven, until veggies are tender and pork is cooked through, 12-14 min.

3. roast veggies

Add potatoes, carrots, onions, squash, half the sage and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to combine. Arrange in a single layer. Roast in the middle of the oven, stirring halfway through, until golden-brown and tender, 22-24 min. (NOTE: Stir veggies before adding pork in step 4.)

4. make gravy

While pork roasts, reheat the same pan (from step 3) over medium. Add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then swirl to melt, 30 sec. Add mustard, broth concentrate, garlic, remaining sage and  cup water (dbl for 4 ppl). Cook, whisking constantly and scraping up any browned bits on the bottom of the pan, 2-3 min. Add sour cream, then whisk until smooth, 1-2 min. Season with salt and pepper.

5. start pork

Pat pork dry with paper towels, then season with half the garlic salt (use all for 4 ppl) and pepper. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil, then the pork. Sear, turning occasionally, until golden-brown on both sides, 6-8 min. (NOTE: Don't overcrowd the pan; cook pork in 2 batches for 4 ppl, using 1 tbsp oil per batch!)


Thinly slice pork. Divide veggies between plates, then top with pork. Spoon gravy over pork.
