Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Homemade Applesauce | Relaxing Sunday Menu


This recipe comes from yesterday's post - "Our Relaxing Sunday Resolution."  See the entire menu here and look for the rest of the recipes this week.

Roasted Pork Tenderloin
with Homemade Applesauce

New! Printable Recipes, here.

Serves 4-6

2 pork tenderloins (about 2.5 pounds)
2 cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
2 teaspoons of worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon of dijon
1 tablespoon of brown sugar
2 teaspoons of salt
1 teaspoon of pepper
.....
8 apples (any kind)
2 tablepoons of butter
1/2 cup of orange juice
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 tablespoon of brown sugar

Begin by marinading the pork.  Mix together garlic, soy, worcestershire, dijon, brown sugar, salt and pepper in a plastic bag or shallow dish.  Marinade pork in mixture for at least 30 minutes.

Next, make the applesauce - it bakes for 1 hour, so be sure to make it ahead of time.


Peel and core the apples - keeping some of the red peel.  I add some of the red peel to the cooking apples to give it great color.  Cut the apples into 1-inch chunks.  In a saucepan, melt butter and brown sugar for 2 minutes, then add apples, orange juice, cinnamon and a piece of the red peel.  Cook on the stovetop for 10 minutes on low, then cover and put in a 325 oven for 1 hour.  If your saucepan is not oven safe, transfer to a covered casserole dish.



When it is finished cooking in the oven, breakup of the apples by stirring with a whisk.  Serve warm.  You can make this a couple of days in advance and just reheat as needed.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

For the pork, heat a medium skillet, then add 1 tablespoon of olive oil.  Sear the pork on each side for 3 minutes, until nice color is achieved.  Put the entire skillet in the oven (uncovered) and cook for another 20-25 minutes, until the pork reaches 150 degrees on a meat thermometer.  Again, if your skillet is not ovenproof, then transfer it to a baking sheet.

Remove it from the oven, cover with lid (or foil) and let rest for 5 minutes.  Slice and serve with warm applesauce.

  1. Hi Jenny - If I wanted to make a smaller version of this dish, could I just cut all the ingredients in half? Thanks!!
