Garlic Roasted Pork Loin & Sweet Potatoes with Raspberry Chipotle Glaze


Posted on December 11, 2012 From Mrs. Happy Homemaker.


Ingredients

1 2-3 pound pork loin roast

6 cloves garlic

1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

2-3 tablespoons olive oil

4 large sweet potatoes, peeled & chopped into 1 inch pieces

1 cup roasted raspberry chipotle sauce

salt & pepper to taste


Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor or blender, puree the garlic cloves, Italian seasoning, & enough olive oil to make a spreadable paste. Mix 1/4 of the garlic oil mixture in a small bowl with 1/2 cup of the raspberry chipotle sauce. In a large bowl, combine the sweet potatoes with the sauce mixture. Set aside. Season the pork roast with salt & pepper; sear quickly on all sides in a hot pan. Place in a 9×13 baking pan & rub the remaining garlic oil mixture all over it. Pour the sweet potatoes around the pork roast. Spread the remaining 1/2 cup of raspberry chipotle sauce on top of the pork roast. Bake uncovered – until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees, about 1 hour. Let rest 10 minutes before slicing.
