Apple Pie Pork Tenderloin

I cruised around the internet earlier in the week looking for recipe inspiration for a pork-related dinner that incorporated apples.  This isn't quite the same as any recipe I found, but it's what I made and boy was it tasty!

Apple Pie Pork Tenderloin
  • 1 pork tenderloin
  • 1 1/2 apples, diced smallish (I had Granny Smith, so I used those)
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp corn starch
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • a bit of water
  • Salt & pepper

Preheat oven to 400*.  Place pork tenderloin in a baking dish.  Season with salt & pepper.

In a separate bowl mix up apples, brown sugar, corn starch and cinnamon. 

Pour apple mixture over pork, cover tightly with foil, and place in oven.  Bake for ~25 minutes then remove from oven and spoon juicy apple juices over pork and return to oven for ~15 minutes. 

Please use a meat thermometer for your pork as cooking times can vary depending on size/shape of your roast.  Pork should be cooked to around 145-150* internally. 

This tasted like pork chops & applesauce. Or a delicious sweet/savory meat/pie combo.  YUM!
