Simple weeknight meal- pork tenderloin with homemade sweet potato fries
Short on time?? Some nights you just don't feel like doing a lot of fancy cooking, and on nights like this I like to make part of the meal and use the K.I.S.S. (KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID) method for the rest! ;) I went to one of my favorite stops (Trader Joes) and bought a roasted garlic and peppercorn pork tenderloin, and some of their fancy frozen veggies. I grilled the pork (takes about 20 min.), threw the green bean mixture on the stove and made the sweet potato fries. Here's the recipe for the sweet potatoes. TIP: Make sure you let the tenderloin rest around 10 minutes before slicing or you will lose all of your juiciness and that just wouldn't be good ;) (keep it covered in foil so it doesn't get cold while it is resting)
Ingredients for sweet potato fries:
2 sweet potatoes - peeled and cut into"fries"
olive oil- a few swirls
salt and pepper to taste
Toss the potatoes in the olive oil
Add salt and pepper
bake at 450 degrees for around 40 minutes or until browned a little.
