Apple Pork Tenderloin

April 27, 2014

How did we already get to the end of another weekend? I swear I go to bed on Friday night and wake up to Sunday.

Today was our big celebratory brunch for my folks’ anniversary. Brunch (grilled seafood salad for me – yum!) was followed by cake which was followed by little bags of Easter chocolate. Decided to make a lean, high protein meal to end the day on a healthy note.

Ingredients

  • 1 1 1/2 – 2lb pork tenderloin
  • 2 apples, sliced into rounds
  • 3 carrots, sliced into rounds
  • 1 bunch broccoli, cut up
  • Nutmeg
  • Garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper

Pre-heat the oven to 425 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lay several of the apple slices on the sheet. Rub salt, pepper and garlic powder on the pork tenderloin and place it on top of the apples. Score the tenderloin several times then slice some of the remaining apple rounds in half and insert them into the cuts. Sprinkle nutmeg all over the tenderloin. Toss your veggies with a bit of salt, pepper and garlic and add them on the baking sheet around the pork in a single layer.

Put the sheet in the oven for about 30 minutes. Turn the veggies once about 15 minutes into cooking. BOOM. You’re done dinner.

The nice thing about this is the juice from the apples caramelizes the veggies as they cook.  When you flip the veggies, try to mix them so the ones on the outside are closer to the pork. The flavour is amazing.

Both the grown-ups and the kids loved this one. Sunday evenings don’t get any easier than this!
