Pork Tenderloin with Balsamic Apple and Onion Relish

 

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

1 Tbsp Flying Olive Rosemary Extra Virgin Olive Oil or a Flying Olive mild-medium Single Varietal of Choice such as Arbosana, Hojiblanca, or Cobrancosa

1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed of all visible fat

Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Sea Salt

2 cups chopped onion, about 1 medium

2 cups chopped apple, about 2 large apples. (I like to use 1 red and 1 green apple)

1 ½ Tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped

3/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth

2 Tbsp Flying Olive Gravenstein Apple Balsamic Vinegar

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 450 F. Lightly coat a baking pan with a little Flying Olive EVOO.

In a large skillet, heat the Flying Olive Oil of Choice over medium-high heat. Add the pork and sprinkle each side with a little salt and pepper. Cook until the tenderloin is browned on all sides, about 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove from the skillet and place in the prepared baking pan. Roast the pork for about 15 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted in the thickest part reaches 165 F degrees (medium).

Meanwhile, add the onion, apple, and rosemary to the skillet. Sauté over medium heat until the onions and apples are soft, about 3 to 5 minutes. Scrape up all the browned bits. Stir in the broth and Flying Olive Gravenstein Apple Balsamic Vinegar. Increase the heat and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat and cook until the sauce has reduced, about 5 minutes.

Remove the pork tenderloin to a large platter and let sit for at least 5 minutes under a foil tent. When ready to serve, slice on the diagonal and put onto 4 warmed plates. Scoop the onion-apple relish over the top of the pork and serve immediately.
