Orange-Glazed Pork with Sweet Potatoes

When it's chilly outside, I like to roast pork tenderloin with sweet potatoes, apples and an orange. The sweetness and spices make any evening cozy. —Danielle Boyles, Sparta, Wisconsin

    6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound sweet potatoes (about 2 medium)
  • 2 medium apples
  • 1 medium orange
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 pork tenderloins (about 1 pound each)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Peel sweet potatoes; core apples. Cut potatoes, apples and orange crosswise into 1/4-in.-thick slices. Arrange in a foil-lined 15x10x1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl, mix orange juice, brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and ginger. Microwave, covered, on high, stirring every 30 seconds until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Stir until smooth.
  • Place pork over sweet potato mixture; drizzle with orange juice mixture. Roast until a thermometer inserted in pork reads 145° and sweet potatoes and apples are tender, 45-55 minutes longer. Remove from oven; tent with foil. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
