This tenderloin is topped with an apple and balsamic vinegar sauce that complements the slightly sweet taste of the pork. Serve with steamed red potatoes, fresh asparagus, whole-wheat dinner rolls, and cubed cantaloupe and watermelon.

  • Cooking spray, 1 two-second spray(s)
  • Extra virgin olive oil, 1 tbsp(s)
  • Pork tenderloin, lean, raw, 1 lb(s), trimmed of all visible fat
  • Black pepper, 1 dash(es), to taste
  • Onion, 2 cup(s), chopped
  • Apple, 2 cup(s), chopped
  • Rosemary, fresh, 1½ tbsp(s), chopped
  • Low sodium chicken stock, 1 cup(s)
  • Balsamic vinegar, 1½ tbsp(s)

Method

Heat the oven to 450°F. Lightly coat a baking pan with cooking spray.

In a large skillet, heat the oil over high heat. Add the pork and sprinkle with black pepper. Cook until the tenderloin is browned on all sides, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and place in the prepared baking pan. Roast the pork for about 15 minutes, or until a food thermometer indicates 165°F (medium).

Meanwhile, add the onion, apple and rosemary to the skillet. Sauté over medium heat until the onions and apples are soft, about 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the broth and vinegar. Increase the heat and boil until the sauce has reduced, about 5 minutes.

To serve, place the pork on a large platter. Slice on the diagonal and put onto 4 warmed plates. Scoop the onion-apple sauce over the top and serve immediately.
