Apples and pork always pair well. The addition of sweet potatoes makes this main dish even more pleasing!

1

1/2

Expert Tips

Be sure to use pork tenderloins--not pork loins--in this recipe. Pork loins are much larger and less tender.

All this meal needs to be complete is coleslaw from the deli or a tossed salad with blue cheese dressing.
