Souvlaki-Style Pork Tenderloin with Mixed Vegetables

Souvlaki-Style Pork Tenderloin with Mixed Vegetables


If you have decided to eat healthier this year, this recipe is for you. Pork Tenderloin is a very lean cut. I like that there is no waste. We have been eating more sweet potatoes, because they are packed with nutrients, and in this recipe they replace the potatoes. Greek yogurt is always on my grocery list and it is used for the Garlic Yogurt Sauce. We doubled the recipe for the sauce and added more garlic. I have some tips to share with you when you make the recipe. You have to be careful when you cook the sweet potatoes because they can overcooked. The next time that I make this pork recipe, I will use fresh oregano and place it on top of the tenderloin before I cook it in the oven. We like to use fresh herbs in my home.
