Glazed Pork Tenderloin with Sugared Apples

Real Simple OCTOBER 2002

  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 pound pork tenderloin
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 3 Granny Smith apples, cored and sliced into 1/2-inch rounds


Heat oven to 450° F. In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, coriander, and lemon juice. Brush the pork with half the marinade. Place the pork in the oven and roast for 25 to 30 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the meat registers 160° F. Baste with the remaining marinade several times during roasting. Remove from oven, cover, and let rest 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, combine the brown sugar, half the pineapple juice, and the apple rounds. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the apples have softened, about 15 minutes. Remove the apples and set aside. Add the remaining pineapple juice to the pan and reduce heat to low. Simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Slice the pork and serve with the apples, drizzling the sauce over both.
