If you have been reading this blog for a while you know that I love savory and sweet foods together. This pork and apple recipe looked great on paper and tasted even better on the plate.
This recipe came from the Two at the Table book I have been loving lately.
This is a simple dish but it has some big flavors. You need some butter, brown sugar, pork, apples, cinnamon and some ground cloves. (I didn't have ground cloves so I just used allspice)
I used a couple of gadgets for prepping the apple. One is my Y peeler that I love and this simple apple corer my sister got me a long time ago. With those getting the apple ready takes no time at all.
After you've got the core out and the skin off, slice up the apple.
Slice up your pork tenderloin and get it seasoned with some salt and pepper.
Once that is ready get some butter in the pan. Look at that beautiful real butter, yum.
Get the pork in and get it browning in the butter. Once it starts cooking your kitchen is going to smell great.
You want to brown these about 10 minutes per side, or less depending on how thickly you've cut them.
Lower the heat to medium and stir in the brown sugar.
Once the pork is cooked with the brown sugar, add the apples, cinnamon and ground cloves. Cook for about 10 more minutes or less, depending on how firm you want your apples. Stir it every so often so it all incorporates together. When the apples are cooked to your liking get it out of the pan and on to a plate.
This simple dish was so good I should have made more for the next day. I can't get enough brown sugar and pork so I will definitely be making this again very soon.
