This Maple Pork Tenderloin and Apples is the perfect combo for me.
I’m a food weirdo when it comes to serving certain foods together.
Like steak needs to be served with potatoes.
BLT sandwiches need to be served with milkshakes (why? because that’s how we always had them as a kid).
And pork needs to be served with apples.
How to make Maple Pork Tenderloin and Apples
It starts with some sliced apples and onions.
I’m using honeycrisp apples because they are crisp and have a good sweet and tart balance to go with the pork.
Toss the apples and onions in some olive oil, cinnamon, and a little kosher salt, and pepper.
Yes, yes, I know it may seem a little strange putting salt and pepper on apples…but I pinky promise it works!
Scooch the apples and onions around the pan to make room for the pork tenderloin.
Then brush the pork with a mixture of hoisin sauce and maple syrup on all sides.
Sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper as well.
Now this one pan meal is ready for the oven.
40 minutes in a 400 degree oven and dinner will be ready.
I tossed the apples and onions around halfway through cooking.
Oh, and PS…your kitchen will smell phenomenal from the cinnamon!
Totally smelled like fall in my opinion 🙂
Sprinkle with fresh thyme if you have some and enjoy the yummy Maple Pork Tenderloin and Apples!
