tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Wash and dry the pepper; cut off and discard the stem. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. In a bowl, combine the sour cherry spread, mayonnaise, and as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be.

Roast, slice & dress the pork
2 Roast, slice & dress the pork

Line two sheet pans with foil. Pat the pork dry with paper towels; place in a bowl. Season with salt, pepper, and the smoky spice blend. Turn to coat. Transfer to one sheet pan. Roast 36 to 38 minutes for medium (the center may still be slightly pink), or until the pork is cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes. Find the lines of muscle (or grain) on the rested pork; thinly slice crosswise against the grain. Transfer to a bowl. Add the salsa verde; stir to coat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Roast the squash
3 Roast the squash

Meanwhile, transfer the squash to the remaining sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil; season with salt, pepper, and the weeknight hero spice blend. Toss to coat and arrange in an even layer. Roast 21 to 23 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. Reserving the sheet pan, discard the foil.

Cook the pepper & onion
4 Cook the pepper & onion

Meanwhile, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced onion and sliced pepper; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, or until softened. Add the vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the liquid has mostly cooked off. Turn off the heat.
