Roasted Pork Tenderloin With Apples and Fennel Recipe

pork tenderloin with apples recipe

Apple season is almost here, and other than in desserts they’re one of the most underused ingredients in our home. We love eating them raw or with a bit of caramel. But their natural sugars make them perfect to add to your meats to give them a full and balanced flavor. Apples pair perfectly with pork, and the next time you’re making a pork loin, add them and some of that licorice flavor from fennel for an amazing dinner.

Ingredients:

  • 2 firm Honeycrisp or Granny Smith apples, sliced
  • 1 large fennel bulb, trimmed and sliced
  • 1 large red onion, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp fresh sage, finely chopped
  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 lbs. pork tenderloin, trimmed
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Set the bottom oven rack to the bottom 3rd and a second rack to the top 3rd. Preheat oven to 400°F and line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper or Silpat® baking mats. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the apple, fennel, red onion, sage, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and balsamic vinegar. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and combine until the apple and veggies are completely coated.
  3. Spread the apple mixture onto one of the prepared baking sheets and roast on the bottom oven rack for 10-15 minutes, or just until the veggies start to soften and develop a bit of color.
  4. While the apples and veggies are roasting, place the pork tenderloin in the center of the second baking sheet and brush with the remaining olive oil. Generously season with salt and black pepper, to taste.
  5. Once the apples and vegetables start to develop some color, place the seasoned pork tenderloin on the top oven rack and roast for 15 minutes before turning the pork. Cook tenderloin for another 10-15 minutes, or until it is cooked through.
  6. Remove both sheet pans from the oven and allow the pork to rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving with the roasted apple and vegetables.
