Ingredients

  • 450 g pork tenderloins
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 450 g sweet potatoes peeled and cut in 1/2-inch (1 cm) chunks
  • 1 red onion cut in 3/4-inch (2 cm) chunks
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup sodium-reduced chicken broth
  • 2 zucchinis cut in 3/4-inch (2 cm) chunks
  • 1 sweet red pepper cut in 3/4 inch (2 cm) chunks
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice
Garlic Yogurt Sauce:
  • 1/3 cup 0% plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 clove garlic minced

Method

Sprinkle pork with 1/2 tsp of the oregano and half each of the pepper and salt.

In large nonstick skillet, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat; brown pork all over, about 5 minutes. Transfer to foil-lined rimmed baking sheet; bake in 425 F (220 C) oven until just a hint of pink remains inside, about 12 minutes. Transfer to cutting board; let stand for 3 minutes before slicing.

Meanwhile, in same pan, heat remaining oil over medium heat; cook sweet potatoes, stirring, until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Stir in onion, garlic and remaining oregano. Cook, stirring often, until onions are slightly softened, about 2 minutes.

Add broth and 1/4 cup water; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer just until sweet potatoes are tender, about 6 minutes. Add zucchini, red pepper, and remaining pepper and salt; cook, stirring, until zucchini is tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in lemon juice. Transfer to platter; add pork.

Garlic Yogurt Sauce: Stir yogurt with garlic; serve with pork and vegetables.
