Roasted Pork with Apples
Recipe for Good Health
The crisp seasonal taste of apples and apple cider make this pork dish something to savor.
- 1 tsp chopped fresh sage or 1/2 teaspoon dried and crushed
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp coarsely ground pepper
- 1 (1 lb) pork tenderloin
- 1 tbsp light olive oil
- 1 medium red onion — cut into thin wedges
Combine sage, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Rub on all sides of tenderloin.
Brown tenderloin in oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Turn so it will brown all sides.
Transfer pork to a shallow roasting pan. Add onion to the pan around the pork.
Roast, uncovered, at 425°F for 10 minutes.
Stir in apples. Roast for 10-15 minutes more or until the pork’s internal temperature registers 155°F on a thermometer and juices run clear.
Transfer the pork and apple mixture to a serving platter. Cover with foil. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing (the temperature of the meat will rise somewhat while it stands).
Bring apple cider to a boil in a small saucepan. Simmer gently, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes or until reduced to ¼ – ⅓ cup. Drizzle over the meat and apple mixture. If desired, garnish with additional sage sprigs.
