Pork Tenderloin with Apples and Onions

« This is an easy, tasty main dish for the family on a weeknight. While the pork is in the oven, it’s simple to steam a veggie side and prepare a quick salad. »


  • 2 (1 1/2 pound) pork tenderloins
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided, or more as needed
  • 3 Granny Smith apples – peeled, cored, and sliced into eighths
  • 2 medium sweet onions, sliced vertically
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, or to taste
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon butter


Prep : 15  m   Cook : 45  m   Ready In : 1  h


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Trim all silver skin from tenderloins; pat dry using paper towels. Rub 1 teaspoon vegetable oil over the surface of each tenderloin and rub with sea salt.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large, oven-proof skillet over medium heat until it shimmers, about 1 minute. Place tenderloins into the skillet and cook, rotating to brown all sides, about 10 minutes. Transfer pork to a large plate.
  4. Add remaining tablespoon oil to any drippings in the skillet. Cook apples and onions in the hot oil, stirring occasionally, until onions begin to turn translucent, about 5 minutes, adding a bit more oil if skillet gets dry.
  5. Meanwhile, spread Dijon mustard evenly over browned tenderloins using a pastry brush. Sprinkle 2 teaspoons thyme leaves over pork. Sprinkle remaining thyme over apple mixture and add black pepper; stir gently to combine. Nestle tenderloins into the skillet with apple mixture.
  6. Roast, uncovered, in the preheated oven until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the tenderloins reads at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C), about 15 minutes.
  7. Remove skillet from the oven and place pork onto a plate. Cover with aluminum foil and let rest.
  8. Meanwhile, pour chicken stock into a saucepan and cook over medium-high heat until reduced by 1/2, 8 to 10 minutes. Add to the skillet containing apple mixture.
  9. Heat over medium-high heat until boiling, about 5 minutes; stir in butter until melted. Slice pork and serve over apple mixture.
