Pork Loin Roast with Sweet Potatoes, Apples and Onions

Pork Loin Roast with Sweet Potatoes, Apples and Onion

– LOOSELY adapted from Martha Stewart

Me & my daughter so didn’t follow recipe. We got carried away; adding brussel sprouts, more sweet potatoes, more apple, BACON…deli mustard on pork with a little brown sugar & seasoning over all. All at same time. Added dollops of butter at last 10 minutes & another sprinkle of brown sugar.  Baked at 475° for aprox 40 minutes, when meat thermometer read 140°. Let it rest for 10 minutes. Between the pan drippings & butter, there was enough to drizzle over servings. We threw caution to the wind AND DELICIOUS! Juicy, tasty & tender. 

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 pork roast (2 1/2 pounds), tied at 1-inch intervals
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 Gala apples, quartered
  • 2 sweet potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch wedges
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Coat a heavy-bottomed metal roasting pan with 2 teaspoons oil. Place pork in center and season with salt and pepper. Roast until top is golden, about 15 minutes.

  2. Toss apples and sweet potatoes with remaining 2 teaspoons oil and add to pan, arranging around pork. Return to oven and roast until apples and sweet potatoes are tender and an instant-read thermometer inserted in center of pork reads 140 degrees, about 20 minutes.

  3. Remove pork, apples, and sweet potatoes from pan. Allow meat to rest 10 minutes before slicing. To make the sauce, whisk flour into pan drippings over medium heat, then slowly whisk in chicken broth and cook until thickened.
