Happy Recipe Monday y’all!
This Pork Tenderloin with Cinnamon Apples recipe is delicious, yet incredibly easy – and it involves little prep and effort! It is a slow cooker recipe, so you basically dump everything into the slow cooker (I use a Crock-Pot), set the temp, and let it do the cooking for you! I discovered the recipe on Pinterest, and I’ve made a few modifications.
Pork Tenderloin with Cinnamon Apples – Serves 5-6
- 1 (2 lb) pork tenderloin
- 4 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon ginger
Season the pork well on both sides with salt and pepper. Spray the slow cooker with cooking spray, then place the pork in the bottom of the slow cooker.
Next, core, peel, and slice up the apples into fairly thin pieces.
I like to use an apple corer/slicer combo to make the process easier.
Once the apples are peeled, cored, and sliced, place them on top of/around the pork.
Mix up the cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and sugar, and sprinkle the mixture over the apples/pork. Make sure that everything is covered well with the mixture.
Cover the slow cooker with its lid, and cook on LOW for 4 hours.
Look at those juicy, spice coated apples. Yummy!
Once cooked, slice up the pork into 1/4″ to 1/2″ pieces and serve with apples on top.
The pork has a wonderful, savory flavor and the cinnamon apples add the perfect sweet/spiced addition for a well-rounded dish!
