I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving filled with friends, family and lots of delicious food!  Now that turkey season has come and gone, ‘tis the season for pork!  I typically make pork for Christmas and other special occasions like Mother’s Day because it just feels more gourmet than traditional fare, and it is so versatile and melt in your mouth delicious while still being deceptively simple to prepare.

This Christmas, I am excited to serve this company worthy Chili Dijon Pork Tenderloin that is sweet and tangy with just the right kick of heat.  And while this Chili Dijon Pork has a few more ingredients (most are spices that take seconds to whip together), it serves as your main course and your sides because the potatoes and the green beans are all baked together!  Not only does this make for quicker meal prep, which is SO important during the holidays when you want to spend time with your family instead of slaving away in the kitchen, but but the juices of the Chili Dijon Pork Tenderloin seep onto the green beans and into the potatoes for an added layer of yum.

But before I get ahead of myself, let’s talk pork.  This was honestly the most tender, juicy pork I have ever devoured.  Part of that is due to the 20 minute water-salt brine.  Brining is like marinating meat as it helps keep the meat moist by increasing the moisture capacity of the meat (and it only takes 20 minutes!)

But I use a brine with all my pork tenderloins, and this was by far the juiciest, because this wasn’t just any pork, this was Smithfield Prime Fresh Pork Tenderloin from United.  Smithfield Prime Fresh Pork Tenderloin is 20% more tender than the other leading brand of natural pork.  In addition, it has zero growth promotants, no added hormones or steroids, no artificial ingredients and is a product of the USA.  Not all pork is created equal and you can definitely taste the difference with Smithfield Prime Fresh Pork Tenderloin!

Showing how to make Pork Tenderloin on a sheet pan.

While your pork is in the brine, you prep your Chili Rub by whisking together chili powder, ancho chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, parsley, thyme, etc.  You add a sprinkling of this along with olive oil, salt and pepper to your potatoes and green beans while on the baking sheet and toss to coat.  Next, you line the green beans down the middle of the pan and the potatoes along the outside.

Next, rub your brined pork with the remaining rub mixed with some olive oil and sear on all sides then place the tenderloins directly over the green beans.  This creates steam while roasting so the beans cook through without drying out.

Finally, your Chili Dijon Sauce.  This is a simple whisking of Asian sweet chili sauce, Dijon, brown sugar and some reserved Chili Rub spices.  It’s sweet, tangy, spicy and loaded with flavor.  Brush this all over your pork before roasting and a little after, and you have the most tender, juicy, flavor-exploding pork to come out of your kitchen.  Christmas Day worthy, every day easy.

  • 1 pkg. Smithfield® Prime Fresh Pork Tenderloin, trimmed (comes with 2 pieces)
  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed
  • 1 1/2 pounds fingerling potatoes, unpeeled, halved lengthwise
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Pork Brine

  • 3 tablespoons salt
  • 3 cups warm water
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 cup ice cubes

Spice Rub

  • 1 TBS EACH chili pwdr, garlic pwdr, brown sugar,
  • 1 tsp EACH salt, cumin, ancho chili pwdr, onion pwdr
  • 1/2 tsp EACH smoked paprika, dried parsley, dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Chili Dijon Sauce

  • 1/2 cup Asian sweet red chili sauce (like Mae Ploy)
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon reserved Chili Rub (in directions)


  • BRINE: In a gallon-size freezer bag, mix salt with warm water. Add the remaining Brine ingredients, followed by pork. Brine for exactly 20 minutes then remove pork from brine, rinse and pat dry. The pork becomes mealy if left in the brine any longer.
  • CHILI RUB AND GLAZE: Meanwhile, whisk together all of the Chili Rub ingredients in a medium bowl. Remove 1 teaspoon Rub to a separate medium bowl and whisk in the Chili Dijon Glaze ingredients. Set aside.
  • VEGETABLES: Add green beans to one half of a large rimmed baking sheet and the potatoes to the other. Toss green beans with 1 tablespoon olive oil, ¼ teaspoon Chili Rub, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ⅛ teaspoon pepper. Toss potatoes with 2 tablespoons olive oil, ¼ teaspoon Chili Rub, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ⅛ teaspoon pepper.
  • Arrange green beans down the center of the baking sheet as pictured, some will overlap. Arrange potatoes, cut side down, on both sides of green beans.
  • PORK: Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Whisk together remaining Chili Rub spices with 3 tablespoons olive oil. Rub patted dry pork all over with Rub.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. When oil is very hot and smoking, add pork tenderloins. Sear each side until browned, approximately 1 minute per side. Place tenderloins lengthwise on top of green beans without touching each other. Separate out ¼ cup Chili Dijon Glaze and brush it evenly over pork.
  • ROAST: Bake until pork registers 145 and 150 degrees F (63 and 65 degrees C) at the thickest part of the tenderloin, 25-30 minutes. This means the pork will be juicy and slightly pink in the middle. When pork is done, let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Your vegetables should be done at the same time as the pork, but if not, then remove pork to cutting board, tent with foil, and continue roasting vegetables an additional 5-10 minutes or until tender.
  • SERVE (optional): Transfer vegetables to platter and pour over any accumulated juices. Season with additional salt and pepper if desired. Cut pork into thin slices and place over vegetables. Serve with remaining Chili Dijon Sauce if desired.

    This was just delicious! I thought sweet chilli sauce and mustard was kind of weird but all your recipes have been superb so far so I decided to have a go. Besides it looked really easy, one pan, love it! And it was a big pan, family sized. I didn’t have any fancy mustard so just used the hotdog squeeze one and it was so amazing! Wow! Thank you so much! I am doing a new recipe every Saturday night, to keep the spirits up, you know. It has been interesting,, so I am sticking to your blog!

    This brine is brilliant. Pretty sure this is the best pork tenderloin I’ve ever made and possibly eaten. Love the spice rub + the sweet chili sauce + the mustard. Delicious. If you are reading this post and these reviews and are undecided: Make it!

    • Jen says

      LOVE your comment Anne, thank you, thank you! I’m thrilled it was possibly the best pork tenderloin you’ve ever eaten, the ultimate compliment!

  5. Krizten Martin says

    Holy. Moly. Just made this for dinner tonight and it is now one of my favorite meals! My dad, who tends to be a skeptic of my Pinterest recipes, took one bite and said “wow!” Thanks for another great recipe, Jen!

    • Jen says

      wahoo! I am thrilled this is one of your new favorite recipes and even skeptic dad approved :)! Thank you so much Krizten!

  6. nicole says

    This looks really yummy! I would like to make it for my meal preps this weekend, but I have never brined anything. My question is the instructions say to “brine for 20 mins”, what does that mean? Do you just let the bag sit out on the counter? or should it be refrigerated? And what does it actually do?
    Thank you!

    • Jen says

      Hi Nicole, yes, just leave it on the counter – super easy!!!

      • Nicole says

        This was FABULOUS! Absolutely my new go to pork tenderloin recipe! Sweet, spicy, crispy and juicy! Oh my!! Thank you!

        • Jen says

          yay!!! I am thrilled and flattered this is your new go-to pork recipe. Thank you Nicole!

  7. Sherri Cockrell says

    Made this tonight and it was amazing! I substituted Baby Yukon Gold Potatoes for the Fingerling Potatoes and cut them in quarters. Doubled the recipe and have some left for lunches tomorrow.Was a hit with my husband, who usually isn’t impressed when I try a new recipe. Looking forward to trying another one of your recipes!

    • Jen says

      Welcome to my site Sherri! I’m so happy your first recipe was a hit – yay and phew 🙂 I hope you continue to find many new winners!

  8. Callie says

    Not the easiest meal I’ve ever made (though the 2.5 year old and 10 month old underfoot can even make calling for pizza difficult at times), but holy YUM. I’ve made it twice now and it’s amazing! A definite keeper, even if I can’t make it as often as I’d like. Thank you!

    • Jen says

      You are so welcome Callie! I’m thrilled its a favorite! A nice alternative to pizza 🙂

  9. Sheryl Goodson says

    Made this for dinner tonight and it was excellent! It took a little longer to put together but was worth it. All of your recipes that I have tried have been great.

    Had my in laws over for dinner tonight and made this – it was a HIT! Instructions were also easy to follow and very helpful. I followed everything exactly and it was delicious. Will definitely make again – thank you!

    • Jen says

      You are so welcome! I’m thrilled it was a winner, especially for your in-laws!

  13. Harchit says

    Hello! Can I use chicken breast for this recipe? Will this brine work for chicken as well?

    • Jen says

      Hi Maureen, you can use 3 tablespoons table salt or 1/3 cup kosher salt. Enjoy!

  14. Annie says

    Yum! This was delicious! Thank you.

    • Jen says

      You’re so welcome Annie, I’m so happy it was a winner! Thanks for taking the time to comment!

  15. Nedra says

    Both grocery stores that I went to we’re out of pork loin. Could I use a pork roast instead?

    • Jen says

      Hi Nedra, you can use pork loan and roast for approximately 20 minutes per pound at 375 degrees F until the internal temperature reads 145 degrees. Add the potatoes and green beans the last 30 minutes. Hope this helps!

  16. Angel Parrish says

    Absolutely love this recipe, I make it with turkey tenderloin. It’s so yummy, everyone is always asking me for the recipe!!!

    • Jen says

      I love hearing that Angel, thank you! I have never tried turkey tenderloin but I am intrigued!

  17. Janet says

    This looks so delicious! I have a pkg. of pork tenderloins in my freezer from Sam’s Club I’d like to use for this recipe – can you tell me if the weight of the tenderloins matters for this recipe? Just wondered if I would need to increase or decrease the amount of the ingredients? Can you tell me the weight of the meat you used for this? Thank you!! Can’t wait to try!!

    • Jen says

      Hi Janet, this recipe is very forgiving because you can remove the veggies if your pork still need more time. I used a typical package weighing 2 – 2 ½ lbs. total. Enjoy!

  18. Alicia says

    Made this tonight. Came out amazing. Definitely a hit – great flavors. Thank you!

    • Jen says

      I love hearing that, thank you so much Alicia!

  19. Shannon says

    I have made this recipe many times! It is my family’s go-to pork dinner. We love it and I love that the ingredients are very adaptable. Sometime I switch out the type of mustard or leave out certain spices if I don’t have them. You are definitely my favorite recipe blogger! Whenever I am looking for a recipe I always check your site first, and usually find exactly what I need. You are the best! ❤️

    • Jen says

      Thank you so much for making my day Shannon, I am so honored I’m your favorite food blogger! I love hearing this recipe is a repeat favorite of yours and that you’ve been able to make it your own!

  20. Megan says

    I was a bit intimidated by this one, thinking it sounded complicated, but it was actually a breeze AND tasted SO good. Bonus: clean-up was much easier than expected too. I’m making my way through several of your recipes lately and enjoying them so much. Thank you for the thorough, clear recipes! They’re always amazing.

    • Jen says

      Thank you so much, Megan, what a glowing review! I am so happy this did not disappoint and that you are enjoying my recipes!

  21. Kristin LeFevre says

    This recipe sounds amazing! I’m prediabetic though, and I’m wondering if/where I could cut out some of the sugar? Do you have any recommendations? Would less sugar compromise the taste too much? You have plenty of other amazing recipes, so I guess I can skip this one if I have to 🙂

    • Jen says

      I’m thrilled that you have been enjoying so many recipes! The sugar is not necessary in the brine, and you could cut it down in the rub! I wouldn’t suggest cutting it out of the sauce too much, as it helps balance out the spice, but you can add it to taste. Hope this helps!

  22. Gigi1956 says

    quick question please – why is this needed to be sliced so thin?

    • Jen says

      Hi Gigi, personal preference, you are welcome to slice it thicker if you like. Enjoy!
