Servings: 4 servings
Total Time: 30 minutes (+ marinating time)
- 1 lb. pork tenderloin
- to taste salt and pepper
- 2 Tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped OR 2 tsp. dried rosemary
- 2 Tbsp minced garlic
- 3 tsp butter, divided
- 4 small apples, cored and cut into wedges, such as Granny Smith

Season pork with salt, pepper, rosemary, and garlic. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, up to overnight.
Preheat oven to 450°F.
Heat an ovenproof skillet (such as cast iron) over high heat. Add 1 ½ teaspoons butter and sear tenderloin on all sides until caramelized, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer skillet to the oven and bake for approximately 15 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 145°F. Remove pork from oven and let it rest for 5–10 minutes before slicing.
While pork is resting, heat remaining butter in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add apples and cook for 3–5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for an additional 3–5 minutes, or until apples are tender.
Slice pork and serve with apples.
