Sure looks yummy! Not sure what you can do t color up pork loin, though, since it tends to be quite pale. Any coloration usually indicates burning, in my case!

What is a swede? In my neck of the woods, they'd be hard to get into a pot... but not nearly as tough as a Norwegian...

Looks good to me - if you wanted to add some color contrast
maybe red and green pepper might work.
Wyogal - I think a Swede is a rutabaga.

yes, swede is a rutabaga...I wish they called it the same thing round the world
the red & green peppers sound good for colour but it would alter the taste, unfortunately ...but that's just my personal choice, & thank you for taking the time to comment x

One could brown the veggies and meat a bit before adding liquid. It will alter the flavor, and one can do it gently without burning. That said, I think it looks lovely, as is.

This is my Pork Tenderloin dish I made two weeks ago, my friend is working on a cookbook, so he asked me to come over and help him with some ideas...since we couldnt find any duck we went with pork and it turned out really nice. Hot cherry smoked pistachio crusted pork tenderloin atop citrus rice and sauteed sugar snap peas topped with a cherry smoked corn, papaya salsa. All topped with a red wine, pomegranate sauce.
