Pork Tenderloin with Apple Glaze

  • Serves: 4
  • Preparation Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Cooking time: 55 minutes

I recently received as a gift a jar of Cover’s Apple Jelly…and discovered a nice way to use it! Try this recipe for the family this Fall!

“A pork tenderloin is seared, coated with a sweet and tangy blend of apple jelly and balsamic vinegar, and baked with wine-flavored onions and apples for a delicious fall main dish.”

Amount Measure Ingredients
1 Tbsp Olive oil
1-1 1/4 lbs pork tenderloin
    kosher salt and ground black to taste
1-1 1/4 tsp chopped fresh parsley
1/2   sweet onion, diced
1   Gala apple, cut into chunks
1/2 cup Riesling wine
1 cup apple jelly
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

To prepare:

  1. Preheat an oven to 350°. Grease a baking dish large enough to hold the tenderloin.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and brown the pork on all sides. Remove the browned tenderloin to the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle all sides of the meat with salt, pepper, and parsley.
  3. Cook and stir the onion and apple in the same skillet over medium heat until the onion becomes soft, about 5 minutes, and pour in the wine. Scrape all the browned flavor bits off the bottom of the skillet and stir to help dissolve them into the wine. Bring to a boil, and pour the onion, apple, and wine mixture over the tenderloin.
  4. Mix together the apple jelly and balsamic vinegar in a bowl until the mixture is smooth and without lumps. Spread the jelly mixture all over the pork.
  5. Bake the loin in the preheated oven until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads 160°, 30 to 45 minutes. Allow the tenderloin to rest for 10 minutes before slicing, and serve each slice.
