Roasted Pork & Vegetables

Last night we had one of our favorites for dinner and as always it never disappoints.  Everyday Food’s Roasted Pork & Vegetables remains in our top 10 recipes because it always turns out well, it’s easy to make, and it tastes SOOO good!

ROAST PORK & VEGETABLES
Everyday Food, March 2005

Ingredients
3 medium baking potatoes, cut into 1-inch cubes (I use red potatoes)
3 medium zucchini, cut into 1-inch think round (I use mini-carrots)
2 medium onions, halved & sliced 1/2-inch thick
8 garlic cloves, peeled & smashed
2 tbsp, plus 1 tsp olive oil
4 sprigs, fresh rosemary
Coarse salt & ground pepper

2 1/4 lbs. boneless center-cut pork loin, tied if desired.

 

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss vegetables and garlic with 2 tablespoons oil, rosemary sprigs, 2 teaspoons salt & 1/4 teaspoon pepper. (I line the pan with tin foil for easy cleanup.)
  2. Rub pork with remaining teaspoon oil; season generously with salt and pepper.  Place on top of vegetables.
  3. Roast, tossing vegetable occasionally, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into pork registers 150 degrees, 35-40 minutes.  Let pork rest 5 minutes.  Slice thinly; serve with vegetables.  
My observations – I normally make half o this recipe because Dave & I are not capable of eating all the leftovers it provides.  I buy the pre-packaged pork tenderloins, and they normally come with two pieces & just use one.  I only cook the meat on the veggies for 25-28 minutes, and cook the veggies for the full 40 minutes.

  2. @Vincent for petitchef.com…I'll check out your website & think about it.@Medifast Success – I haven't made many crock pot recipes because I haven't found many that are on the healthier side. However, I think this particular recipe would do well & I had never thought about adapting it. I am trying a chicken tortilla soup one this weekend in the crockpot & will let you know how it turns out.
