  • Chef Knife
  • Cutting Board
  • Roasting Pan
  • Sheet Tray
  • 2 Saute pans
  • Tongs
  • Mixing bowl
  • Carving Knife


  • 1 lb Pork Loin or Tenderloin
  • 3 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 3 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1.5 Tbsp Thyme chopped
  • 1/2 bunch Asparagus trimmed
  • 1 each Large Sweet Potato large dice
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp Honey
  • Salt as needed
  • Pepper as needed
  • Olive Oil as needed


  • Preheat the oven to 375 F
  • Mix dijon, garlic and thyme (reserve 1/2 Tbs) together. Add in salt and pepper an a bit of olive oil. Rub on the pork loin, sear pork in a saute pan on each side, and then put the seared pork into a roasting pan. Roast in the oven 25-30 minutes, until the internal temperature is 145 F. Pull out and rest. Slice to serve (Reserve 4 oz of pork for the fried rice recipe).
  • Medium dice the sweet potatoes. Toss them with cinnamon, salt, pepper, honey and olive oil. Spread on a sheet tray and bake in the oven 20-25 minutes until they are cooked through.
  • Heat a saute pan on medium high, add in 1 Tbs oil and the asparagus. Cook asparagus 2 minutes and then add in the rest of the chopped thyme. Toss together and season. Asparagus will turn bright green and will become tender after about 3-4 minutes. This is what you are looking for on doneness so that they are tender and not overcooked. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Serve pork with asparagus and sweet potatoes (pan juices for the pork can be used to sauce the pork). Enjoy!
