I followed the recipe exactly, which I don't usually do, and it turned out beautifully. I also tried the suggested winter roasted vegetables - exactly as written - and they were fabulous! The meat is really quick prep, the vegetables need a full hour to cook, and the prep time is about 30 minutes so allow enough time. I am a very experienced cook and these are very good recipes.
Outstanding! Few changes except to make it for 2. One tenderloin, one apple. one large shallot. Also used half & half (on hand) and just a touch of butter at the end. Made the full sauce recipe and will double it next time. (It is seriously yummy) Used apple brandy as real Calvados is very expensive. Timing for pork was right on (15 min for an almost 1lb tenderloin). I used a honeycrisp apple (in season here and on hand) - they are much larger than a Granny so I would cut it into 10 or 12 pieces to get them to cook more quickly. I have a kickbutt stove so they caramelized quickly on medium heat. Would make this for company in a heartbeat. Mr suggested adding mushrooms (and he's not a huge mushroom fan) to add a little umami. Hmmmm might try that.
We all loved this dish. It took me much longer to caramelize the apples but was glad I took the extra time to do so. I served it with sauteed brussels sprouts and rice.
This recipe was wonderful! I wouldn't change a thing. The pork was the most moist and tender I have ever made, and the sauce perfect...not too sweet....just right. Very easy and great for entertaining. Solid!
This was delicious. I had a fennel bulb to use up and I sliced it and added to the apples. The sauce was, well, to die for.
Easy, delicious, and the roasted broccoli side suggestion really works well with the pork
I have made this a few times, even used a pork butt roast. All I can say is, Heavenly delicious! I can't thank you enough for sharing!
So good, my guests asked for the recipe and had to make it for their own entertaining!
Experimented with this for company and it was easy, fast and delicious. It was a big hit for everyone. This is a great meal for guests or for a weeknight dish. I will definitely make this again.
Delicious and easy. Wouldn't change a thing.
This was wonderful! It all came together at the end and made for a very tasty meal. My Husband loved it and I would make it again. Next time for company.
