Italian Pork Tenderloin and Roasted Sweet Potatoes


Italian Pork Tenderloin and Roasted Sweet Potatoes

1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp seasoned salt
1 clove garlic
2 medium-dark sweet potatoes (chunked)
1 medium yellow onion (sliced)

1 pork tenderloin (about 1 pound)
1/2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp seasoned salt
1 Tbsp Parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley (totally optional)

1. Heat oven to 425. In a large bowl, mix 1 Tbsp oil, 1 tsp Italian seasoning, 1/4 tsp seasoned salt, and garlic. Add sweet potatoes and onions; toss to coat. Spread in 9x13 pan. Roast uncovered for 10 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, brush pork tenderloins with 1/2 Tbsp oil. In small bowl, stir together 1 tsp Italian seasoning, 1/4 tsp seasoned salt, and Parmesan cheese.
3. Move veggies to center of the pan; place 1 pork tenderloin on each side (I bought one 1# tenderloin and just cut it in half). Sprinkle seasoning mixture evenly over pork. Insert ovenproof meat thermometer so tip is in thickest part of pork.
4. Roast uncovered 20-25 minutes longer or until thermometer reads 155 degrees F. Cover pan with foil; let stand for 5 minutes or until thermometer reads 160 degrees.
5. Cut pork into 1 inch thick slices. Arrange on platter with sweet potatoes and onions. Sprinkle with parsley.

Absolutely delicious. I can't believe it took me 25 years to realize this thing of beauty called the sweet potato. Oh my god. I could eat them for every meal. These were particularly amazing.
