McCormick Gourmet - Bourbon Spiced Pork

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.
