Pork Tenderloin with Apple-Onion Chutney


I made this Pork Tenderloin with Apple-Onion Chutney recently for the first time and let me tell you that it is about to become a regular recipe in my kitchen. I love pork tenderloin. As the name suggests, the meat is super tender and it tends to be really lean too.

To make this, start by removing any bits of fat from around the pork. Pound the meat between 2 sheets of plastic wrap until they are ½ an inch thick. Season and cook in a skillet. When the pork is cooked, remove it from the skillet and make the chutney by combining onion, apples, water, cider vinegar, honey and salt. If you like a hint of spice, you can add some cumin to the chutney. Return the pork to the skillet and heat it through before serving.

To make Pork Tenderloin with Apple-Onion Chutney, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Pork Tenderloin with Apple-Onion Chutney


Pound the pork


Trim any fat from the pork tenderloin. Slice the piece of pork in half. Place each piece of meat between two pieces of plastic wrap. Pound the meat lightly with the flat side of a meat tenderizer until the pork is ½ inch thick. Work from the center of the meat to the edges when pounding. Remove from the plastic wrap.


Season meat


Sprinkle the meat with ⅛ teaspoon of dried thyme and ⅛ - ¼ teaspoon of pepper.


Heat a skillet


Place a large skillet over medium heat and coat lightly with cooking oil spray.


Cook the pork


Fry the pork for 6-9 minutes until it is cooked through. A thermometer inserted should register 145°F. Transfer the pork from the pan and cover to keep warm.


Make chutney


Sauté ¾ cup of sliced onion in the same skillet until soft. Mix in 8 ounces of apple slices, ¼ cup of water, 2 tablespoons of vinegar, 1 teaspoon of honey, ¼ teaspoon of salt, and ⅛ teaspoon of cumin (if using).


Bring to a boil


Bring the chutney ingredients to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer uncovered, for 4 - 5 minutes or until almost no liquid remains and the apples are tender. Stir occasionally while cooking.


Heat pork


Return the pork loins to the skillet for 2 minutes until heated through.



Serve immediately, garnished with freshly chopped thyme.
