Made this last night.  Didn’t have a grater with large enough holes so I just sliced the potatoes into really thin strips and used light syrup to reduce the calories a bit. Spicy and sweet, yum!

Chili Pork

Serves 4| Hands-On Time: 25m | Total Time: 25m

Ingredients

  • 1 pork tenderloin (about 1 1⁄4 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes (about 1 pound), peeled
  • 2 large shallots, chopped
  • 1 5-ounce package baby spinach, chopped
  • hot sauce (optional but delicious!)

Directions

  1. Heat broiler. Place the pork on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Rub with 1 teaspoon of the oil, the chili powder, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Broil, turning occasionally and basting with the maple syrup twice, until cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
  2. Meanwhile, in a food processor fitted with the coarse grating disk, grate the sweet potatoes.
  3. Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shallots and cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the sweet potatoes and cook, tossing occasionally, until tender, 7 to 9 minutes more. Add the spinach and cook, tossing, until just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes more.
  4. Serve the pork and potatoes with the hot sauce, if desired.
