Pork and fennel are a distinctive Italian pairing of sweet and mild. Roasted side by side on a single baking sheet, they get deliciously caramelized.

Cook's Notes

The key to succulent pork tenderloin is to not overcook it. And once you pull it out of the oven, let it rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing.

    I think this recipe for pork sirloin roastis my new go to this Christmas. I've been looking for a recipe like this since my last pork roast failed on me last year. Tried a recipe from celebrity chef and it was simply too complicated. This one looks easy! Thanks! Bookmarking and saving. Martha to the rescue!

    This had such good reviews, I expected to love it, but that wasn't the case. It was my first time trying fennel and no one in my family liked it. The pork, with only salt, pepper, and oregano, wasn't very exciting but it was the best part of the meal. One reviewer said she needed to cook longer, but I found the stated cooking times were fine.

    So good! I added cauliflower to roast and kale chips as a garnish! Delicious!

    Amazing! I used 2 fennel bulbs and also added some carrots and potatoes to roast at the beginning. I followed the cook time exactly and it turned out very good! I will definitely make it again.

    I made this dish tonight and it was wonderful! While the fennel and garlic were roasting, my husband came into the kitchen to ask what smelled so good! The smell actually lingers. We ate at 6 pm and it is now 9 pm and the house smells so fragrant. I needed to cook the fennel and pork a little longer; maybe another 15 minutes.

    Gibby1, We have made it a couple time and I have replaced the plain pork tenderloin with Hormel's flavored porkloins. The black pepper one is very good. and along the lines of DebZyla we roasted ours with Yukon Gold baby potatoes cut in half and baby carrots.

    My first time with fennel and my family loved it! My husband said to be sure and keep this on the short list. I told him it already was since it was sooooo easy! Don't let the fennel scare you!

    I loved this. Very easy and tasty. I served with rice and I suggest a side like a tomato salad.

    I made this last night. While it was OK- it wasn't great. The fennel and pork combo was good but the pork needed something extra like a sauce. I had wanted to make it for a dinner party but will have to try something else.
