Anna's Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.

Pork Tenderloin with Cider Apples and Sage

Pork Tenderloin with Cider, Apples and Sage. The tenderloin is a cheap and lean cut of pork. To ensure it’s tender don’t overcook it. This is a great quick alternative to a family roasted joint. All prepped and cooked in 30 minutes. Serve with green veg and a potato of your choice.⠀⠀

2-3 pork tenderloins (approx 1kg)⠀⠀
4 large echalion shallots halved⠀⠀
4 cloves garlic⠀⠀
500ml Cider⠀⠀
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar⠀⠀
Sage leaves⠀⠀
3 apples peeled, cored and cut in quarters⠀⠀
Tbsp butter ⠀⠀

Slice the tenderloins into 1 inch thick pieces.⠀⠀
Warm a lug of oil in a pan and colour your shallots. Add the sage leaves for 30 seconds to crisp then lift out and put them on kitchen paper. The sage will flavour the oil.⠀⠀
Remove the shallots from the pan and set aside. ⠀⠀
Add a knob of butter & the Apple pieces to the same hot pan. Colour the apples for minute before adding the balsamic vinegar.⠀⠀
Bubble for 2 mins spooning the juices over the apples before lifting out the apple.⠀⠀
Now time to cook the pork slices. Colour them for a minute on each side in the same hot pan and remove.⠀⠀
Now add the cider to the pan and let it bubble and reduce for 8 mins so the alcohol burns off.⠀⠀
Return the pork, Apple & shallots to the pan. Simmer for 5 minutes and serve with the sage leaves.⠀⠀
