Recipe notes
Here's an easy sheet-pan recipe for pork tenderloin with roasted apples, sweet onions, and fluffy yams. Ready in an hour, it's a great weeknight dinner.
RECIPE Preparation
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Using a fork, prick each of the sweet potatoes all over 5 or 6 times and rub with a little oil. Place sweet potatoes on a rimmed sheet pan and roast for 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, to a large bowl add onions, apples, garlic, thyme, 1 teaspoon of the sage, and about 1 tablespoon oil. Toss to coat; season with salt and pepper.
  4. Remove pan from oven. Move sweet potatoes to one side and spread apple mixture evenly over the rest of the pan. Roast for 15 minutes.
  5. Using butcher’s string, tie the tenderloins into two small roasts, folding in the skinny tail ends if needed. Season both sides with salt, pepper, and sweet paprika; brush tenderloins lightly with oil.
  6. Remove from the oven, gently stir apple mixture, then dot with 2 tablespoons of the butter. Place prepared pork tenderloins on top of the apples. Roast for 15-20 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of one of the tenderloins registers 140 degrees F.
  7. In a small bowl, mix remaining 3 tablespoons butter with cinnamon and remaining teaspoon of sage. Mix well and season with salt to taste.
  8. Rest tenderloins for at least 5 minutes before slicing against the grain. Open sweet potatoes and top each with spiced butter mixture. Serve with apples and pan juices.
