  • 1 acorn squash (2 pounds), quartered, seeded, and sliced 1/2 inch thick, skin on
  • 8 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 pork tenderloins (about 1 pound each)
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Scatter squash and garlic in a large roasting pan. Mix rosemary, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; rub into pork. Place in pan with vegetables; drizzle with oil.

  2. Roast 25 minutes. Brush pork with hoisin. Continue roasting, about 15 minutes, until pork reaches an internal temperature of 140 degrees.

  3. Let meat stand 5 minutes before slicing 1 1/2 tenderloins (reserve remaining half to make Pork and Soba Noodle Salad, if desired). Serve with squash, garlic, and any pan juices.

    This recipe is so delicious. I love it because it is so easy to make. There is no marinating time. No waiting. It can be served with rice, potatoes or even mashed sweet potatoes. Yummy!

    I have never cooked or eaten acorn squash before and we were pleasantly surprised. The whole meal was delicious and easy. I served the pork with a charred vegetable rice and now am looking forward to using the leftovers in the soba noodle salad.

    The squash prepared this way is so delicious - so sweet - it has become a regular veggie dish in our home. The pork is great too! Quick and easy.
