Garlic Roasted Pork Loin & Sweet Potatoes with Raspberry Chipotle Glaze

I love pork roasts.  I love how you can put just about any flavor on it, and it just partners with it so well.

I make a lot of pork roasts for everyday meals, Sunday dinners, & special occasions. I always have one in the freezer ready to go because I purchase a lot of whole pork loins, and then have my local butcher slice it into individual roasts (and pork chops ) for me.  Huge money saver!

Now, I also love one dish meals. I mean, who doesn’t? Simple preparation & easy clean-up is a major recipe turn-on for me.

Recently I had the opportunity to try the Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce from Fischer & Wieser & I fell in love with it instantly.  Thankfully I didn’t eat the entire bottle of it with the bag of pretzels I couldn’t help dipping in it – or I would have never created this pork & sweet potato recipe, and that would be a real shame.  A travesty even.  It’s just that delicious.

When we sat down to eat, my entire family couldn’t stop raving about how good it was.  Even my 2 year old wanted seconds.  You know you have a winner when that occurs!

Remember, I said easy – right?  Let me show you how I did it.

In a food processor or blender, puree together your garlic, Italian seasoning, & olive oil.

In a small bowl, mix 3 tablespoons of the garlic oil mixture with 1/2 cup of raspberry chipotle sauce.

In a large bowl, mix together the sauce mixture with the sweet potatoes.

Sprinkle the pork roast with salt & pepper.  Give it a quick sear on all sides in a hot pan. Place in a 9×13 baking dish & rub with the remaining garlic oil mixture.  Pour the sweet potatoes around the roast.

Spread 1/2 cup of the raspberry chipotle sauce on top of the pork roast.

Cook at 350 degrees for until the internal temperature comes to 145 degrees, about 1 hour.  Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

If you have any leftovers, try them out in this pork taco recipe.  It’s fantastic!
