2 teaspoons butter
1 (1 3/4-pound) honey mustard-flavored boneless center-cut pork loin filet (such as Hormel Always Tender)
1 cup sliced onion (about 1 medium)
1 cup apple cider
1 teaspoon country-style Dijon mustard
2 1/4 cups peeled and sliced Gala apple (about 2 medium)
4 cups coarsely chopped green cabbage (about 1/2 head)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 bay leaf


1. Melt butter in a deep, large skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork; cook 6 minutes, browning on all sides. Remove pork from pan; set aside, and keep warm.

2. Reduce heat to medium. Add onion; cook 3 minutes. Combine cider and mustard. Add cider mixture, apple, and next 3 ingredients to pan, scraping pan to loosen browned bits.

3. Return pork to pan; cover and cook 18 minutes or until a thermometer registers 155° (slightly pink). Remove pork from pan. Cover with foil, and let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Discard bay leaf.
