Pork with Sweet Potatoes and Apples

Posted by Brette in Food

I’m starting to think about fall food as the weather is beginning to change. This recipe was really easy to put together, but packed a lot of flavor. It cooks in under an hour, so it works even on a weeknight.

Pork with Sweet Potatoes and Apples

1 pork tenderloin

2 large apples, quartered

2 sweet potatoes, cut into 2-inch slices or chunks

2 large garlic cloves, peeled and chopped

1 small onion, peeled and thinly sliced

10 fresh sage leaves, roughly chopped

1 tbsp fresh thyme

salt and pepper to taste

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/4 cup apple cider

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

Preheat oven to 400. Spray a roasting pan or glass baking pan (about 13×8) and place the pork tenderloin in it. Arrange the apples and sweet potatoes around the pork. Sprinkle the garlic, onions, sage, thyme, and salt and pepper over everything. Pour cider and vinegar into pan. Bake uncovered for about 45-50 minutes, until the pork is 140 degrees.

If you want to make gravy, remove pork and veggies from the pan and place the pan on a burner. Add 1 cup chicken broth and enough Wondra flour to thicken to your tastes (I like my gravy thick!) and cook over high, stirring or whisking constantly until it thickens.
