In this recipe, the sweet flavor of the apple cider and chopped apples nicely complement the pork tenderloin.

Ingredients

(Serves 4)
  • 16 ounces pork tenderloin, cut into 4 pieces
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 medium yellow onions, chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 2 cups apple cider, divided
  • 1 tart apple, peeled, seeded and cut into chunks
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Directions

Season the pork tenderloin with curry powder and let stand for 15 minutes.

In a large, heavy skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the tenderloin and cook, turning once, until browned on both sides, about 5 to 10 minutes. Remove the meat from the skillet and set aside.

Add the onions to skillet and saute until soft and golden. Add 1 1/2 cups of the cider, reduce the heat and simmer until the liquid is half the volume.

Add the chopped apple, cornstarch and the remaining 1/2 cup cider. Stir and simmer while the sauce thickens, about 2 minutes. Return the tenderloin to the skillet and simmer for the final 5 minutes.

To serve, arrange tenderloin on a serving platter or divide onto individual plates. Pour thickened sauce over meat and serve immediately.
