Part two of my apple butter experiment. Apple and pork are a delicious pair. For my Sunday night cook off, I made a pork tenderloin with apple butter sauce. So, let me say that this would be the first time I have ever made anything involving pork tenderloin. I’m always game to try out something new. So here goes…
Again, making do with what is in my kitchen, the only ingredient I had to purchase today was the piece of meat. I took the pork and seasoned with some garlic salt and pepper. I then laid some thinly sliced apple on top and poured some apple juice on the meat.
I then wrapped up the pork en papillote and baked it for an hour. While it baked, I prepared the apple butter sauce – apple butter, brown sugar, some pumpkin spice and a little bit of water to thin it out. After an hour, I took the pork out and spread the sauce all over. Then back into the oven for another hour and a half.
Oh my word, so fantastic. Sweet and savoury, the meat was tender and moist having absorbed a bit of the apple juice. I think I may have to make this again. Now, just to find the perfect sides and lunch is set. =)
