The fall family favorite goes lighter with barely sweetened apples. And instead of the typical pork chops, we go for lean, inexpensive pork tenderloin. Complete the meal with a side of Broccolini or broccoli.
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut crosswise into 12 pieces
2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
1 Gala apple, cored and chopped
1 Granny Smith apple, cored and chopped
1/2 cup water
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Fresh parsley leaves (optional)
How to Make It
Combine 1/2 teaspoon salt, garlic powder, paprika, and pepper; sprinkle evenly over both sides of pork.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add pork to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from pan.
Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan (do not wipe pan clean); swirl to coat. Add apples and 1/2 cup water; cover and cook 6 minutes or until apples are tender.
Uncover. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon salt, sugar, and cinnamon; cook 2 minutes or until apple is soft and most of liquid evaporates to become syrupy, stirring occasionally. Serve pork with apple mixture; top with parsley, if desired.
Finally something both my husband and my 8 year old loved! They said it tastes just like apple pie and the pork was so tender and tasty! It was very easy to make and required hardly any time, just what we needed for this fast-paced family! Two thumbs up!
