Apple Cider Glazed Pork

A touch of butter and brown sugar smoothes out the sweet acidity of apple cider vinegar, making an easy and elegant sauce for pork tenderloin. Slices of apple are sautéed in the sauce until soft, adding a bite of fruit to each forkful.

> 2 pork tenderloins (2 1/2 lbs total)
> 1 tbsp vegetable oil
> 2 tsp unsalted butter
> 2 Granny Smith apples ( 1/2 pound total) peeled, cored and cut into 16 wedges
> 2/3 cup apple cider
> 1/3 cup brown sugar, unpacked
> 1/4 cup chopped onion
> 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
> Dash of ground cloves
> 2 tsp cider vinegar
> 1/2 tsp salt
> 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
> 1 tbsp cornstarch


Preheat oven to 350ºF. Heat oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over moderately high heat, then brown tenderloins on all sides, turning with tongs, about 5 minutes total. Place tenderloins in shallow baking dish and roast for 20–30 minutes or until meat thermometer reads 145ºF. Allow to rest for 3 minutes before slicing.
While meat is roasting, heat butter in medium skillet, add apples and sauté until brown, then transfer to a separate plate and set aside. Combine remaining ingredients, except cornstarch, in same skillet. Heat until mixture begins to simmer. Dissolve cornstarch in a small amount of water and add to skillet. Cook until thickened and hot, stirring constantly. Serve pork slices with apples and glaze.
