  • 1 (8 ounce) piece pork tenderloin

  • teaspoon dried thyme, crushed

  • 1/8-1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • ¾ cup thinly sliced onion

  • 8 ounces apples, cored and sliced

  • ¼ cup water

  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon ground cumin (Optional)

  • 1 sprig Chopped fresh thyme


  1. Trim fat from pork. Cut the meat in half crosswise. Place each piece, cut side down, between two pieces of plastic wrap. Working from center to edges, pound lightly with the flat side of a meat mallet to 1/2-inch thickness. Remove the plastic wrap. Sprinkle the meat with dried thyme and pepper.

  2. Lightly coat an unheated large skillet with cooking spray. Add the pork. Cook over medium-high heat for 6 to 9 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in the pork registers 145 degrees F, turning once halfway through cooking. Transfer the pork to a plate. Cover and keep warm.

  3. For chutney, cook onion in the same skillet about 4 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in apple slices, the water, vinegar, honey, salt, and cumin (if desired). Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 4 to 5 minutes or until the liquid is almost evaporated and the apples are tender, stirring occasionally. Return the pork to the skillet and heat through. Divide the pork and chutney between two plates. If desired, garnish with fresh thyme.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
