Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry all produce. Cut potatoes into 1/2-inch pieces. Strip thyme leaves from stems. Add potatoes, half the thyme and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Arrange potatoes in a single layer. Roast in the middle of the oven, flipping halfway through, until golden-brown and tender, 25-28 min.
Meanwhile, halve Brussels sprouts (if larger, quarter them). Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Add Brussels sprouts, 1 tbsp water and 1 tsp oil (dbl both for 4 ppl) to one side of an unlined baking sheet. (TIP: Adding water helps the Brussels sprouts steam while they roast!) Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Set aside.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. While the pan heats, pat pork dry with paper towels. On a separate cutting board, if applicable, cut pork crosswise into 2 equal pieces (4 pieces for 4 ppl). Season with salt and pepper.When the pan is hot, add 1 tsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then pork. Sear, turning occasionally, until golden-brown, 4-6 min. Remove the pan from heat. Transfer pork to the other side of the baking sheet with Brussels sprouts.
Roast pork and Brussels sprouts in the top of the oven until Brussels sprouts are tender and pork is cooked through, 10-12 min.**
When pork is almost done, reheat the same pan (from step 3) over medium. When hot, add 1 tsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then garlic and remaining thyme. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 30 sec. Stir in 1/4 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl), honey, broth concentrate and Dijon. Cook, stirring often, until sauce thickens slightly, 2-3 min. Season with pepper, to taste.
When pork is done, transfer to a cutting board. Thinly slice pork. Stir any pork resting juices into sauce.Divide pork, potatoes and Brussels sprouts between plates. Drizzle honey-thyme sauce over pork.
