Roast Pork with Potato Sheet Pan Dinner – Lombo de Porco com Batatas Assadas
This easy sheet pan dinner recipe can be prepared the day before. Just pop it in the oven the next day, 1.5 hours before your ready to eat! I make this recipe at least once every few weeks because of it’s simplicity and great flavor. The sliced port makes great sandwiches the next day too with some sauteed onions.
1 (4 to 5) pound pork loin
3 tablespoons of my spice mix click here: Tia maria’s Portuguese-dry-rub
3 pounds new potatoes (washed and cut into cubes) (or any favorite potato)
2 tablespoons white wine
1 large onion (chopped)
6 cloves garlic (chopped)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1 pound fresh broccoli spears (side is optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Grease a large roasting pan with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Blend 2 tablespoons of spice mix with a mortar and pestal.
Place pork in a large sheet pan and rub with wine, butter and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Rub with spice mix.
Place potatoes, onions, garlic and olive oil in a bowl and toss to coat. Add remaining spice mix and toss to coat evenly.
Add potatoes evenly around the pork. Cook for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
Gently shake the pan every 30 minutes to toss the potatoes. Use a rubber spatula to turn over potatoes if needed.
10 minutes before end of cooking, add fresh broccoli to the pan and mix in with the potatoes to season.
Note: Meat thermometer should reach 160 degrees F. Let the meat rest for 3 minutes before slicing.
Note: If you prepare the day before and store in refrigerator, let the meat reach room temperature for about 15 minutes before cooking.
