Maple Dijon Pork Tenderloin and Sweet Potatoes


2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-size cubes
1 large onion, sliced (optional)
1 T extra-virgin olive oil
1-1/2 tsp kosher salt, divided
2 T Dijon mustard
2 T pure maple syrup
1 garlic clove, minced
1⁄4 tsp coarse ground black pepper
1 pound pork tenderloin

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

Place the cubed sweet potatoes and onion slices on the baking sheet, drizzle with the olive oil, and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of the salt. Toss gently to coat.

In a small bowl, combine the maple syrup, Dijon mustard, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, and black pepper.

Pat the pork loin dry with paper towels, brush all over with the maple mustard mixture, and place fat-side-up on top of the sweet potatoes.

Bake for 15 minutes, or until the crust begins to brown, then reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees. Continue baking another 30-40 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are tender and the pork registers 145 degrees using an instant read thermometer.

Remove from the oven and allow the pork to rest for 5 minutes before cutting diagonally into 3/4 inch slices.

Double the recipes and put the protein on one sheet pan and veggies on the other.

TIP: Buy veggies precut in the produce section to make meal prep even easier!
