Servings: 4 Prep 10 mins Cook 25 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 green and red apples, such as Golden Delicious and Staymans, sliced into 1/2-inch-thick rounds, seeded, cored
  • 1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin (about 2 tenderloins), cut into 1-inch-thick rounds
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage, plus leaves for garnish
  • 3/4 cup apple cider
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar

Make It

1. Heat 1 tablespoon each butter and oil in large skillet. Add apple, working in batches if necessary, adding more oil and butter as needed; cook 4 minutes until light golden and speckled. Remove with spatula to large roasting pan or baking sheet with sides; spread in single layer; place in oven.

2. Heat another teaspoon butter and oil in skillet. Sprinkle pork with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Add to skillet; cook 2 to 3 minutes per side until browned. Place each medallion on apple slice; there will be more apple slices than pork.

3. Add remaining butter and oil to skillet. Add onion, 2 tablespoons sage; cook 6 minutes until softened. Add cider and vinegar. Cook, stirring up browned bits, for 4 minutes until reduced and slightly thickened. Add remaining salt and pepper.

4. Arrange pork with apple slices on plates. Pour sauce over. Garnish each plate with a fresh sage leaf. Makes 4 servings.
