  • To cut down on cooking time, just cube the pork tenderloin into 1-inch pieces. You can also sauté, grill, or slow-cook the pork tenderloin if you prefer!
  • Covering the baking pan with foil also helps speed up the baking process – the foil traps steam on the inside, cooking the pork tenderloin and sweet potatoes faster.

How to Make a Sweet Potato Casserole

Here’s how to put together this delicious pork and sweet potato casserole!

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F and prepare a large baking tray by lining it with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
  2. Peel the sweet potatoes and use a sharp knife to cube the potatoes into 1-inch pieces. Do the same for the bell peppers and place the vegetables into a large bowl. Slice the shallots and add the bowl.
  3. Remove the Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork Tenderloin from its packaging and cube the pork into 1-inch pieces, then add to the vegetables.
  4. Pour the olive oil and maple syrup over the pork tenderloin cubes and the vegetables, then season with the herbs, salt and smoked paprika. Using 2 spatulas or your hands, mix everything together.
  5. Spread the vegetables and pork cubes evenly onto the prepared baking tray. Cover the tray tightly with foil. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes covered, then uncover and continue to bake until the sweet potatoes and pork are tender.
  6. Transfer the roasted vegetables and pork into a casserole dish, layering with crumbled goat cheese and pomegranate arils. Top with more cheese and pomegranate and garnish with chopped parsley, if desired. For more sweetness, pour additional maple syrup over the casserole.
