Seared Pork Tenderloins with Rosemary and Apples
Apples and rosemary go together particularly well with pork. This recipe is a very simple and popular one which you can enjoy anytime of the year but I particularly enjoy it in the fall.

- 1⁄2 cup Frozen Apple Juice Concentrate
- 1⁄4 cup Dijon Mustard, smooth style
- 1⁄4 cup Rosemary, fresh, chopped
- 1⁄4 tsp. Thyme, Dry
- 2 Tbsp. Garlic, Fresh Minced
- 1⁄2 tsp. Fresh Ground Pepper
- 3 each Pork Tenderloins
- 2 each Granny Smith Apples, cored, cut in 1" cubes
- - Non-Stick Vegetable Spray
- In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients then set aside 1/3 cup in a sealed container and refrigerate.
- In a large re-sealable plastic bag, combine the pork and remaining marinade. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate 6 to 8 hours or overnight.
- Pre-heat oven to 350 F and then place a medium size non-stick saute pan on a medium high heat.
- Drain off marinade from meat and spray all the meat with the non-stick vegetable spray and place each tenderloin in the saute pan.
- Sear all sides of the meat until golden brown and then place them in a roasting pan or on a cookie sheet with at least a 1/2" edge.
- Pour the reserved marinade on top.
- Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 150 to 160 degrees.
- While the pork tenderloins are in the oven, spray the saute pan once again with non-stick vegetable spray and place over medium high heat. Once hot, add cubed apples, then lightly spray the apples once again with the vegetable spray. Saute for 5 to 8 minutes to give the apples some color and to soften them slightly.
- Remove pork tenderloins from the oven and let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
- Slice meat and garnish with the warm apple pieces.
