Sarah-Jane's New South Apple-Glazed Pork Tenderloin
1 pound extra-lean pork tenderloin
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
½ large sweet onion, chopped
1 large Gala apple, chopped
½ cup dry white wine, such as Chardonnay
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
4 tablespoons all-fruit (no sugar added) apple or peach spread
Freshly ground black pepper and salt, to taste
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a large baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the pork tenderloin on all sides and then remove and place in prepared baking dish. Sprinkle all sides of the tenderloin with the parsley and salt and pepper.
In the same skillet that was used to brown the tenderloin, sauté the onion and apple over medium heat until they begin to get tender, about 5 minutes. Then pour in the white wine, deglazing the skillet by scraping up all the browned bits on the bottom of the skillet and stir to dissolve into the wine. Bring to a boil and then pour mixture over the pork tenderloin in the baking dish.
Stir the apple or peach spread into the balsamic vinegar until well combined and spread mixture all over the tenderloin.
Bake the prepared tenderloin for about 30 minutes (or until a meat thermometer reads 145 degrees F when inserted into the thickest part of the tenderloin). Once the tenderloin has been removed from the oven, allow it to rest for about 10 minutes before slicing.
Slice the tenderloin and serve with a spoonful of the apple-onion mixture from the baking dish. Enjoy!
