Pork Tenderloin w/ Sweet Potatoes

It’s that time again! A new way for your grilling ideas. Vegetables are great on the grill. If you don’t have an outdoor grill, use your indoor grill. I do!
2 Tbsp. olive oil
3 medium sweet potatoes
Kosher sait and freshly ground pepper
2 cucumbers, chopped
1 scallion, sliced
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
1 Tbsp white wine vinegar
1 Tbsp packed light brown sugar
1 Tbsp. chile powder
2 Tps. ground cumin
2 small pork tenderloins, trimmed
1. Preheat a grill to medium high and brush the grates with oilive oil. Piece the sweet potatoes all over with a fork and microwave until just cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes; let cool slightly, then slice into 1/2 inch thick rounds. Transfer the sweet potatoes to a medium bowl and gently toss with 1 tps. of olive oil, 1/4 tsp. salt and a little pepper.
2. Meanwhile, toss the cucumbers, pineapple, scallion, cilantro and vinegar in a medium bowl; season with salt and pepper. Set aside. Mix the brown sugar, chile powder, cumin, 3/4 tsp. salt and a few grinds of pepper in a separate bowl. Rub the pork all over with the remaining 1 Tbsp. olive oil and the spice mixture.
3. Grill the pork, covered, turning occasionally, about 15 minutes. Remove to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes. Grill the sweet potatoes, turning once, until marked, about 3 minutes. Slice the pork and top with cucumber-pineapple salsa. Serve with the sweet potatoes. ENJOY!!
