This sheet pan recipe for Roast Pork takes only 10 minutes to pull together. While the pork tenderloin and sweet potatoes roast together in the oven, whip up the citrus molasses Au Jus to finish the dish. We love this recipe because it’s easy enough for weeknights but elegant enough for entertaining.

medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch thick slices (about 3 cups)
teaspoons vegetable oil
pound boneless pork tenderloin
teaspoon dried rosemary leaves or dried thyme leaves, crushed
cup chopped shallot or onion
cups Swanson® Chicken Broth or Swanson® Chicken Stock
tablespoons orange juice
tablespoons packed brown sugar
tablespoon orange zest
Set the oven to 425°F. Place the sweet potatoes into a large roasting pan. Season as desired and toss with 1 teaspoon oil. Push the sweet potatoes to the sides of the pan. Place the pork in the center of the pan. Rub the pork with 1 teaspoon oil. Season the pork as desired, then sprinkle with the rosemary.
Roast for 20 minutes or until the pork is cooked through and the sweet potatoes are tender. Let the pork stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
While the pork is roasting, heat the remaining oil in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the shallot and cook until tender, stirring occasionally. Add the bourbon and cook for 1 minute.
Stir the cornstarch, broth, orange juice, molasses and brown sugar in a small bowl until the mixture is smooth. Add the cornstarch mixture to the saucepan and cook and stir for 10 minutes or until the mixture boils and thickens. Stir in the orange zest. Season to taste. Serve the sauce with the pork and sweet potatoes.
