Rosemary Pork Tenderloin with Harvest Apples

Charles E. Walton IV

Apples are available year-round but best during the autumn harvest season. For this recipe, choose crisp, firm sweet-tart apples such as Fuji or Braeburn. Damon Haynes, sommelier of Il Palio restaurant at the Siena Hotel in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, suggests pairing this dish with a Lis Neris Isonzo de Friuli Chardonnay 2002 (about $14) or Lis Neris Gris-Pinot Grigio Venezia Giulia 2002 (about $21).

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds (about 5) Fuji or other sweet-tart apples, peeled and each cut into 8 wedges
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 (1 1/2-pound) pork tenderloin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup white wine or apple juice
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary leaves

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. 2. Toss apples with butter and lemon juice in a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish or shallow ovenproof Dutch oven. Bake at 400° for 20 to 25 minutes. Season tenderloin with salt and pepper; brown in hot oil over medium-high heat in a heavy-bottom skillet 7 minutes. Remove apples from oven; place tenderloin in center of baking dish. Set aside.
  3. 3. Cook onion in skillet 5 minutes. Turn heat to high, and add wine; cook about 2 minutes, scraping bottom of skillet. Stir in cream, mustard, and rosemary.
  4. 4. Pour cream mixture over tenderloin, and bake at 350°, basting occasionally, 20 to 25 minutes or until meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 155°. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes. (The pork will continue to cook.) Slice into 1/2- to 3/4-inch slices, and serve with apples and mustard cream sauce.
