Doreen Scanlon’s Prosciutto-Wrapped Pork with Sweet Potatoes and Pears
Doreen Scanlon's Prosciutto-Wrapped Pork with Sweet Potatoes and Pears.
* 2 medium sweet potatoes (about 1 pound), peeled and cut lengthwise into wedges
* 2 firm red Bartlett pears, cut into wedges
* 2 tablespoons olive oil
* 8 sprigs fresh thyme
* kosher salt and black pepper
* 1 piece pork tenderloin (1 1/4 pounds)
* 1/4 pound thinly sliced prosciutto
* 1 tablespoon honey
1. Heat oven to 425º F. On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss the sweet potatoes, pears, oil, thyme, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
2. Wrap the pork in the prosciutto, slightly overlapping the slices to cover the pork completely.
3. Push the vegetables to the edges of the baking sheet, place the pork in the center, and drizzle the pork with the honey. Roast until the pork is cooked through and the sweet potatoes and pears are tender… Can take up to 40-45 minutes.
Let the pork rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing.
Serve with the sweet potatoes and pears.
