Easy After Work Pork Roast Recipe

Cooking during the week: we know we should do but don’t always have the motivation to especially after a long day at work.
Here is a Quick and Easy Delicious Recipe for a Chinese Pork Roast.
1          jar(s) (7.5 oz) hoisin sauce
2          tablespoon(s) each honey and rice vinegar
4          scallions, finely chopped
2          large sweet potatoes, cut in 1/2-in. strips
1          pound(s) asparagus, trimmed
3          teaspoon(s) oil
1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
1          (1 lb) pork tenderloin
Position racks to divide oven in thirds. Heat oven to 500ºF. You’ll need 2 rimmed baking pans lined with nonstick foil.
Whisk 1/3 cup hoisin sauce, honey, vinegar and scallions in small bowl until blended; reserve for serving.
Place sweet potatoes on one baking pan, asparagus on the other. Toss potatoes with 2 tsp oil, asparagus with 1 tsp. Sprinkle all with salt; toss.
Move potatoes partially to one side of pan. Place pork on same pan with potatoes; brush with remaining hoisin sauce. Roast pork and potatoes on top shelf 15 minutes.
Remove pan from oven, gently toss potatoes and turn pork. Return to oven; roast pork and potatoes on top, asparagus on bottom 10 minutes or until pork registers 155ºF on an instantread thermometer. Rest pork 5 minutes; slice and serve with hoisin-honey sauce.
