Recipe from Heart-Healthy Living
1 teaspoon snipped fresh sage or 1/2 teaspoon dried sage, crushed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
1 1 pound pork tenderloin
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 medium red onion, cut into thin wedges
3 medium (1 pound) cooking apples (such as Granny Smith or Jonathan), cored and cut into 1/2-inch thick wedges
2/3 cup apple juice or apple cider
Fresh sage sprigs (optional)
Transfer pork to a shallow roasting pan. Add onion to pan around pork. Roast, uncovered, at 425 degrees F for 10 minutes. Stir in apples; roast for 10 to 15 minutes more or until pork internal temperature registers 155 degrees F on instant read thermometer and juices run clear.
Transfer pork and apple mixture to serving platter; cover with foil. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing (temperature of the meat will rise 5 degrees F while it stands).
In a small saucepan bring apple juice to a boil; simmer gently, uncovered, for 8 to 10 minutes or until reduced to 1/4 to 1/3 cup. Drizzle over meat and apple mixture. If desired, garnish with additional sage sprigs.
