  • Step 2 - Sear the Pork Tenderloin

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and pork tenderloin to hot pan. Sear until well-browned on two sides, 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer pork tenderloin to one side of baking sheet. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  • Step 3 - Finish the Pork Tenderloin and Asparagus

    Add asparagus to empty half of baking sheet. Spray asparagus with cooking spray and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast until asparagus is tender and pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees,11-13 minutes. Rest pork 5 minutes before cutting into ½" slices. While pork roasts, make carrot mash.

  • Step 4 - Mash the Carrot

    Add carrot to boiling water and cook until tender, 5-7 minutes. Drain in a colander and return carrot to pot. Add butter and mash until fairly smooth. Season with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Set aside and keep warm.

  • Step 5 - Make the Sauce
