Who is hungry? I know I always am after rushing around all day! Recently, McCormick spices contacted me looking to see if I was interested in testing some of their new McCormick Gourmet everyday meals seasoning mixes and recipes. Of course I was! When I received my package in the mail I had the best time going through everything, but had a hard time picking which seasoning mix and recipe I wanted to try! After seeing the weather for yesterday (mid 70’s with a chill in the air…) I decided that two of my fall favorites, sweet potatoes and apples, would be great with pork tenderloin. It certainly made for a delicious and easy one-pan dinner.
I followed all of the directions exactly as directed the entire meal was prepped and in the oven within 30 minutes.
Bourbon Spiced Pork with Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Apples
(Recipe via McCormick)
1 package McCormick® Gourmet Bourbon Spiced Pork with Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Apples Recipe & Seasoning Mix
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 pork tenderloins (about 1 pound each)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 cup orange juice
3 medium sweet potatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds), peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
2 apples, such as Gala or Fuji, unpeeled, cored and halved
How to do it:
1. Preheat oven to 425ºF. Mix Seasoning Mix and brown sugar. Reserve 1/4 cup. Brush pork with oil. Rub with remaining Seasoning mixture. Place pork tenderloins in center of large shallow foil-lined baking pan.
2. Mix reserved Seasoning mixture and orange juice in large bowl. Add sweet potatoes and apples; toss to coat well. Arrange sweet potatoes and apples, cut sides down, around pork.
3. Roast 30 to 35 minutes or until pork is desired doneness and sweet potatoes are tender. Toss sweet potatoes and apples with pan juices; serve with sliced pork.
This meal was EASY, filling and really helped me elevate my Monday night meal. I seriously cannot wait to see how the other recipes and seasoning mixes are!
