Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Mustard Apple Relish

Makes 8 servings


1/4 cup olive oil, divided

2 pork tenderloins, about 1 pound each

2 tablespoons dried rosemary leaves

4 cups unpeeled thinly sliced red Michigan Apples

2 cups thinly sliced onions

2 cups Michigan Apple juice

2 tablespoons coarse ground Dijon-style mustard

1 tablespoon sugar


Preheat oven to 350°F. Brush tenderloins with 2 tablespoons of the oil. Cook in large skillet on medium-high heat until browned on all sides. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Rub tenderloins with rosemary leaves. Place on flat rack in baking pan. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until internal temperature of each tenderloin reaches 160°F.

Meanwhile, heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Cook and stir apples and onions until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes. Stir in apple juice. Cook until liquid is reduced by half, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in mustard and sugar.

Slice tenderloin and serve with apple-onion mixture.
