Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Choose orange-fleshed sweet potatoes with dark brownish-orange skins. These sweet potatoes are moist, sweet and add beautiful color to recipes.
Bosc pears are firm even when they are ripe, they hold their shape when cooked. Anjou pears work well, too.
Kitchen Tip
To accurately check the temperature of the tenderloin, insert a meat or instant-read thermometer into the thickest part. Pork is done when the thermometer reads 145°F. Let stand 3 to 5 minutes before slicing.
