Ranch Pork Loin with Sweet Potatoes

I wanted to try something a little different when I decided to whip up this easy pork loin roast last week. This recipe was seriously so easy and delicious. I love just throwing ingredients I have together and seeing what happens and this is exactly what I did! All you need is a 2-3 lb pork loin roast, two sweet potatoes, one large onion and some ranch powder to make a flavorful and easy weeknight dinner. I served mine with a side salad and a glass of red wine!
Ranch Pork Loin with Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon ranch dressing powder(store bought or use this recipe for a healthier, homemade version)
  • 2-3 lb pork roast
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes cut and quartered
  • 1 large sweet onion sliced
  • 3/4 cup of water
  • Garlic powder to taste
  • Onion powder to taste
Directions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Heat up a cast iron skillet to med-high heat. Add 1 Tablespoon olive oil and allow the pan to heat up! DO NOT grab the handle with your bare hand(speaking from experience).
  2. Season pork loin with garlic and onion powder. Rub it into the meat on all sides.
  3. Brown the meat for 1 minute on each side until the sides are brown.
  4. Remove pork loin from skillet and add to 9×13 baking dish.
  5. Add onion, potatoes and 3/4 cup of water. Sprinkle ranch powder all over. 
  6. Place the pan in the oven uncovered and bake for around 40-45 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and let the meat rest for at least 5 minutes before cutting into it.
  8. Enjoy!
