We spent the entire day working outside, there is a surprising amount of work to do on a small hobby farm! I wanted a healthy, no fuss sort of meal for dinner. So I made roasted pork loin with pears, beets, and butternut squash. It was delicious and very satisfying.
Bake whole beets not peeled for 1 hr 15 minutes at 400 degrees
Chop butternut squash into cubes and bake for 40 minutes at 400 degrees
Season and sear a pork loin then top with sliced pears and red onion, a sprig of thyme and drizzle with balsamic vinegar and bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees
Let meat rest for about 10 minutes to keep it juicy
Meanwhile peel and slice beets
Drizzle pan juices over pork when sliced and plated
