Applesauce Pork Tenderloin Recipe
This Applesauce Pork Tenderloin is nice and juicy. It is full of flavor and only requires a few simple ingredients, making it the perfect dinner, any night of the week.
Shallow Roasting Pan
Small Mixing Bowl
- 2 pound pork tenderloin
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- 2 Tablespoons Vegetable oil
- 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 3 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 2 Tablespoons honey
- 2 sprigs fresh rosemary roughly chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper.
In a large skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat.
Brown roast on all sides in skillet.
Place roast in a shallow roasting pan.
Combine applesauce, brown sugar, mustard, and honey and spread over roast.
Top with rosemary and bake uncovered for 30 to 40 minutes (or until a thermometer inserted in tenderloin registers 155°).
- I definitely suggest an unsweetened and non-fruit flavored applesauce like strawberry or peaches when making this recipe. We normally just use the plain unsweetened version, but cinnamon applesauce would work wonderfully!
