Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Maple-Glazed Apples

Pork tenderloin is one of my favorite meats to work with because it makes quick and easy meals after a long day of work that seem decadent.  Once you sear the pork, it only takes a little more time in the oven.  You can also do a lot of things with pork tenderloin whether you want a sweet or more savory meal.

I made some broccoli on the side of this meal, which went great with it.  I would also recommend green beans or another green veggie.

I based my recipe off this one.


Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Maple-Glazed Apples

Ingredients:

  • 1 pork tenderloin (I find size doesn’t really matter, as they are all relatively the same size)
  • 1 tablespoon EVOO or coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter or fat of your choice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 Granny Smith apples, sliced into 1/2 inches
  • 1 shallot (or onion), thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • s&p

Directions:

  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Rub pork tenderloin with cinnamon, s&p.  Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil.  Sear the pork about 4 minutes on each side, or until browning.  Set aside.
  • Melt the butter in the still hot skillet, then add the apple slices and shallot.  Saute for about 1 minute.  Stir in the maple syrup, lemon juice, s&p.  Either return the pork to the pan to place everything in the oven, or transfer all to a baking dish.  Place in the oven and roast for about 12 minutes, or until pork is 145 degrees F.  Let stand 5 minutes, serve and enjoy!
