Pork Tenderloin with Sautéed Apples

This recipe calls for pork tenderloin but you can also use chicken with these delicious sautéed Gala apples. The sweet and juicy apples make this meal so much more child friendly.

You’ll Need

  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 3 Gala apples, cored and sliced into ¼-inch wedges
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 ½ lb boneless pork tenderloin
  • ½ cup apple cider
  • ⅓ cup chicken or vegetable stock

Prep and Cook

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add onion and garlic and cook until softened.
  • Add apple slices to the skillet and continue cooking until apples are softened and lightly browned. Remove from the pan and set aside; keep warm.
  • Season pork with salt and pepper.
  • In the same skillet, heat 1 Tbsp oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add pork and sear until golden brown on all sides, including ends, about 3 minutes per side.
