Sweet flavors pair nicely with pork tenderloin. While the classic pairing is apple sauce, the combination of barbeque sauce and maple syrup work wonderfully too. Cooked together with sweet potatoes, this one dish meal is perfect for a Friday night. No time is spent slaving over the stove because the entire thing bakes in the oven!
