Pork Tenderloin Sauteed Cabbage and Apples
Need a little sunshine in your dinner? Need dinner in a flash? If you said yes, this beautiful pork tenderloin dish is for you!
To get started, simply cut the tenderloin into quarters and sear on all sides in a skillet.
After the meat is browned, place it on a baking sheet in a 500 degree F. oven for 15 minutes.
Saute some red cabbage in the skillet along with the juices that remain from the tenderloin and a few seasonings.
A little ginger, some garlic and a dash of cinnamon will do. By the way, if you wanna grow your own ginger year round, check out my post about that here –> What a Pear! ~ An energizer snack plus tips on how to have an endless supply of fresh ginger!.
Add some Granny Smith apples to the cabbage and cook until softened.
When the tenderloin reaches 165 degrees F, take it out of the oven and slice thinly. Serve over top the cabbage and apples.
Simple, easy and delish!
Sometimes, you need a good hearty meal with no fuss. This dish is delightful and you’ll be out of the kitchen in no time.
As a foodie, even I get in a hurry on occasion and need a quick meal. Pork tenderloin is light, has a great flavor and cooks up very quickly with this method. It’s tender, moist and delicious over cabbage and apples. That little bit of seasoning with the ginger and cinnamon gives it a nice, satisfying warmth and it’s perfect for any Autumn weeknight meal.
There you have it foodie friends. I do hope you’ll give this one a try. If you’d like to catch up with me, you know where to find me. Make it a great day and as always, keep it delicious!
Till next time ~ much love, Connie
