Pork Tenderloin w/ Warm Apple Slaw

Monday night dinner:
Pork Tenderloin w/ Warm Apple Slaw

This was a recipe I found in Family Circle magazine, and I've done pork with apples before and it has always turned out delicious. This was a very easy and quick dinner to make. Great for work nights.

Pork Tenderloin w/ Warm Apple Slaw
1 pork tenderloin (1 1/2 lbs)
3 tsp honey
1/2 head green cabbage, thinly sliced
2 gala apples, cubed
1tsp caraway seeds (optional)
2 Tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

1. Heat oven to 400. Rub the pork with 1 tsp of honey and sprinkle with salt and pepper; place in roasting pan. Roast for 30-45 minutes-turning half way through.

2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add cabbage and cook, covered for about 6 minutes- stirring frequently. Once cabbage is tender, add the apples, remaining 2 tsp of honey, and caraway seeds (if you opted for them). Cook for another 6 minutes uncovered and stirring occasionally.

3. Remove pork from over when internal temp reaches 155. Cut pork into 1-inch slices and serve over cabbage and apple slaw.

Cook according to box directions. I used toasted pine nut couscous and it compliments the pork very well.

~Enjoy! Happy eating!
