I discovered a new product in the grocery store last week. It's a spice/seasoning packet found in the gravy/sauces/seasoning section of the store, and it's called McCormick Gourmet. There were several flavors, but I chose to try the Bourbon Spiced Pork. There is a recipe on the back of the package, "Bourbon Spiced Pork with Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Apples", and it was just delicious.
1 pkg McCormick Gourmet Bourbon Spiced Pork seasoning mix
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 pork tenderloins (about 1 lb each)
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup orange juice
3 medium sweet potatoes (about 1 1/2 lbs) peeled and cut into 1" cubes
2 apples, cored, unpeeled and halved
Combine seasoning mix and brown sugar. Reserve 1/4 cup aside. Brush pork with oil. Rub with remaining seasoning mixture. Place pork in the center of a large shallow baking pan.
Mix reserved seasoning mixture and orange juice in large bowl. Add sweet potatoes and apples; toss to coat well. Arrange sweet potatoes and apples, cut sides down, around pork.
Roast in preheated 425 degree oven for 30 - 35 minutes or until pork is done and sweet potatoes are tender. Toss sweet potatoes and apples with pan juices; serve with sliced pork.
Because I decided on a whim to try the new seasoning packet tonight, I had to work with the ingredients I had on hand. I replaced the pork tenderloins with butterfly pork chops and the sweet potatoes with butternut squash. Dinner was absolutely delicious! You have to try this one.
Thanks, McCormick for a fantastic new product! I will definitely be trying the others.
