It's common to combine pork with apples. In this easy recipe, we're doing just that, but amping up the apple taste with an apple cider reduction. Dried sage can be used, but try to find fresh sage leaves which will add more flavor to this dish.

  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh sage or ½ teaspoon dried, crushed
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1 (1 pound) pork tenderloin
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 medium red onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 3 medium cooking apples (1 pound), cored and cut into ½-inch thick wedges
  • ⅔ cup apple cider
  • Fresh sage sprigs (optional)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Combine sage, salt, and pepper in a small bowl; rub on all sides of tenderloin. Brown the tenderloin in hot oil in a large skillet over medium heat, turning to brown all sides.
  2. Transfer the pork to a shallow roasting pan. Add onion to the pan around the pork. Roast, uncovered, at 425°F for 10 minutes. Stir in apples; roast for 10 to 15 minutes more or until the pork's internal temperature registers 155°F on a thermometer and the juices run clear.
  3. Transfer the pork and apple mixture to a serving platter; cover with foil. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing (the temperature of the meat will rise 5°F while it stands).
  4. Bring apple cider to a boil in a small saucepan; simmer gently, uncovered, for 8 to 10 minutes or until reduced to ¼ to ⅓ cup. Drizzle over the meat and apple mixture. If desired, garnish with additional sage sprigs.
