Recipe Ingredients for Molasses-Glazed Pork with Sweet Potatoes

4 cloves garlic, peeled
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 tablespoons molasses, divided
3 1/2 tablespoons lime juice, divided
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 Freshly ground black pepper to taste
18 oz roasted pork tenderloin (10061), net from 2 pork tenderloins, 3/4 pounds each, trimmed of fat
3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth (105273)
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 medium red onions, cut into 8 wedges each
3 sweetpotatoes (11507), peeled, halved lengthwise and cut into 1-inch slices
255 g (1 10-ounce package) frozen whole okra (11281)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme (2049) or 1 teaspoon dried

Recipe Directions for Molasses-Glazed Pork with Sweet Potatoes

  1. Mash garlic and salt into a paste with the side of a chef's knife. Transfer to a large shallow dish. Stir in 2 tablespoons molasses, 2 tablespoons lime juice, cumin and pepper to taste. Add pork and coat well. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator, turning occasionally, for at least 1 hour or overnight.

  2. Preheat oven to 450°F.

  3. Whisk broth, remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons molasses, 1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice and oil in a 10-by-14-inch roasting pan. Add onions, sweet potatoes, okra and thyme; season with salt and pepper to taste and toss well. Cover tightly with foil.

  4. Bake the vegetables until sweet potatoes begin to soften, 25 to 30 minutes.

  5. Push the vegetables to sides of the pan. Place the pork in center and pour any remaining marinade over it. Roast, uncovered, until just a trace of pink remains in the center and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 155°F, 30 to 35 minutes. Transfer the pork to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes. Slice thinly on the diagonal. Serve with the vegetables.
