Herbed Pork Tenderloin with Mustard-Roasted Apples & Potatoes

Scott Phillips

A mixture of fresh rosemary, sage, and thyme coats quick-cooking pork tenderloin, which pairs beautifully with tender apples and potatoes. The whole thing makes your kitchen smell like a dream, and the flavor? Even better.

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 1-1/2 lb. red potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 large red onion, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 5 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. country-style Dijon mustard
  • 2 medium cloves garlic, mashed to a paste with the side of a chef’s knife
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 small pork tenderloins (about 1 lb. each), trimmed
  • 1 Tbs. dark brown sugar
  • 1 Tbs. chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 Tbs. chopped fresh sage
  • 1 Tbs. chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 Tbs. white wine vinegar
  • 2 green apples, cored and cut into 8 wedges each
  • Flaky sea salt

Preparation

  • Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 450°F.
  • Line a large rimmed sheet pan with aluminum foil or parchment and mist with cooking spray. Toss the potatoes and onion together on the prepared pan.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together 1/4 cup of the oil, 1 Tbs. of the mustard, the mashed garlic, and a big pinch each of salt and pepper. Reserve 2 Tbs. and drizzle the remaining mixture over the vegetables on the sheet pan, tossing to coat. Spread the vegetables evenly and roast until beginning to soften and color slightly, 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, pat the pork tenderloins dry with a paper towel. In a small bowl, combine the remaining 1 Tbs. oil and mustard with the sugar, 1 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. pepper; rub all over the pork. Sprinkle the chopped fresh herbs to coat on all sides.
  • Toss the apple wedges with the reserved 2 Tbs. of dressing, then toss with the vegetables on the pan. Place the tenderloins on top of the vegetables, leaving some space between the two pieces of meat.
  • Roast, flipping the meat once halfway through, until the vegetables are browned and tender and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the pork registers 145°F, 25 to 30 minutes total.
  • Transfer the pork to a cutting board and let rest, loosely covered with aluminum foil, for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, toss the vegetables with the vinegar.
  • Slice the pork, sprinkle with sea salt, and serve with the vegetables.

    This recipe has potential and I will try again, but I found the 450 oven temp much too high and the time seemed excessive. My oven is accurate to with a few degrees. I ended up with charred, and not in a good way, bits of onion, nearly unidentifiable apple and potato, and dry pork. This may be because I had to halve the recipe. Not everyone cooks for 6-8 people. I cook for 2. Always an issue.

    Made this last minute for dinner one evening and it did not disappoint! Super quick and easy to make!

    This was soggy and tasteless. I would have given it no stars, as I threw it away.

  • Krispie | 10/11/2015

    This was tasty and I would make it again. My apples and potatoes both disintergrated and I cooked it for the amount of time per the recipe. I'll have to think about how to rectipfy that issue.
