A pre-seasoned Garlic and Herb Pork Sirloin from Smithfield makes for a quick, hearty, and healthy meal! Sweet potatoes, apples, onions, and kale are cooked in the skillet to make a quick hash bursting with vitamins and fall flavors.
  • 1 tablespoon oil (vegetable or canola)
  • 1 (approx. 3 lb) Smithfield Garlic and Herb Pork Sirloin
  • 4½ cups sweet potatoes, diced (1" pieces)
  • 1 medium red onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2 cups tart, firm apples, diced (1" pieces, peeling is optional)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup water (more if needed
  • 3 cups kale, stems removed, leaves torn
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Heat the oil in a large oven-proof skillet.
  2. Brown the pork on all sides to form a crust. This will seal in all the juices. Place the skillet in the oven and let the pork cook until an internal temperature at the thickest part reads 160°F and the juices run clear. (pork is usually 25 - 30 minutes per pound)
  3. Remove the pork from the skillet and let it rest.
  4. Carefully place the hot skillet on a burner and set the heat to medium high. There will be drippings in the pan from cooking the pork. Toss in the diced sweet potatoes and onions and toss them around to coat. Let them cook for about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. The onions will become soft and fragrant, the sweet potatoes will start to become tender.
  5. Add the garlic. Let is cook for just a minute. Then stir in the apples.
  6. Sprinkle the cinnamon over everything and pour in the water. Reduce the heat as necessary. Toss in the kale. Continue cooking until the sweet potatoes and apples are tender and the kale is wilted.
1. I like to prep my vegetables while the pork is roasting in the oven. This actually eliminates that 10 minutes of prep time
2. If you need dinner on the table faster, try a Smithfield Garlic and Herb Pork Tenderloin instead. It will sear faster and roast completely in about 25 minutes.
3. The hash recipe serves 6 but you will have plenty of pork leftover for sandwiches or appetizers. To use the leftovers try these Pork Sliders or these BBQ Bites.
