Friday Feast ~ Pork Tenderloin with Roasted Sweet Potatoes

This is such an easy meal idea and just delicious!  Plus, it is super good for you! My family loves this meal when I make it.  I usually serve it with some rolls and a nice green salad!


 No-Stick Cooking Spray
2 pounds sweet potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup orange juice
2 teaspoons dried oregano, divided
2 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1-1/2 pounds pork tenderloin

Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray 13x9-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
Place potatoes in baking pan. Combine orange juice and 1 teaspoon oregano in small bowl; pour over potatoes. Combine oil, garlic, remaining 1 teaspoon oregano, salt and pepper in small bowl. Coat pork with seasoned oil mixture; place on top of potatoes.
Cover pan tightly with aluminum foil; bake 35 minutes. Increase oven temperature to 425°F. Remove foil; bake uncovered 10 to 15 minutes more or until pork is slightly pink in center (160°F) and potatoes are tender. Let pork stand 5 minutes before slicing.
