Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Heat a large oven-safe nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.Advertisement
Pat pork dry with paper towels and rub with 3/4 teaspoon of the black pepper blend. Place pork in skillet and cook for 2 minutes per side or until browned. Transfer pork to oven and roast at 400 degrees F for about 25 minutes or until internal temperature registers 155 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. Brush pork with 1 tablespoon of the maple syrup twice during last 10 minutes of cook time.
While pork is cooking, heat a medium-size saucepan over medium heat. Add parsnips to saucepan; coat generously with nonstick cooking spray. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until browned.
Add broth, sweet potatoes and 1/4 cup water to saucepan and cook, covered, for about 23 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until liquid has been absorbed. Gently mash. Stir in remaining 2 tablespoons maple syrup and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper blend and serve with pork.
