Recipe: Apple Pear Pork Tenderloin

Apple Pear Pork Tenderloin

I wish I could lay claim to this recipe, I can’t. It came from the Costco cookbook “A Decade of Cooking the Costco Way”. But, this is such a delicious recipe, I felt I had to put it out for my readers to enjoy. I make this recipe often for my husband and I. We even made it while we visited my family and they all loved it too. So, I hope you love this recipe as much as we do. Oh, and because it serves so many, I usually half the recipe since there are just two of us (that eat solids like this).

Ingredients:
2 pork tenderloins
Salt and pepper
3 Tbs olive oil
3 shallots, sliced
3 garlic cloves, sliced
½ c dry white wine (or vegetable broth)
1 ½ c apple cider
3 Braeburn or Granny Smith apples, cored and cut into ⅛” slices (with skin)
2 Bosc pears, cored and cut into ⅛” slices (with skin)
3 Tbs butter

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450°
  2. Season pork with salt and pepper to taste. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add pork and sear on all sides. Add shallots and garlic; saute until tender, about 1-2 minutes. Add wine or broth and stir until deglazed. After the browned bits have surfaced, add cider, apples and pears; stir.
  3. Transfer all ingredients to a baking dish. Cover and bake for about 45-60 minutes, or until the internal temperature is 165-170°.
  4. Remove the pork from the pan and keep warm. Remove the apple and pear pieces from the pan with a slotted spoon and place in a bowl.
  5. Pour the sauce from the baking dish back into the frying pan, bring to a boil over medium-high to high heat, and cook until reduced by half. Whisk in butter. Add the apple and pear pieces, stirring gently.
  6. Place the pork on a serving dish and slice on the bias. Top with the apple-pear sauce. Makes 6-8 servings.
