Apple Pork Tenderloin and Baked Potatoes

I made this delicious dish for my hubby's birthday on this year. It was super easy to throw together and cooked up nicely with baked potatoes on either side of my roaster in the oven.
  • 2-3 pound pork tenderloin roast (our local Meijer had them on sale for $2.99/lb with an additional BOGO offer so we bought a few)
  • 2 medium gala apples, cut into 8 wedges each
  • 1 large sweet onion, cut into 12 wedges
  • 4 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 8 medium baking potatoes
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons kosher salt, divided 
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup balsamic reduction
  • 3-4 tablespoons olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a small roaster pan with nonstick spray. 
  2. Place pork tenderloin into the center of the pan. Toss apple, onion, and garlic over pork. 
  3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Drizzle with balsamic reduction and 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil. Cover.
  4. In the meantime, wash and poke your potatoes. Rub them with olive oil and sprinkle them liberally with kosher salt.
  5. Place your roast in the oven with the potatoes lined up directly on the oven rack on either side of the roaster pan. Bake for 50 minutes. 
  6. While roast and potatoes are doing time in the oven, prep your vegetables. I prefer steamed broccoli, but you could also roast up some Brussels sprouts or green beans by adding them to the oven at the right time.
  7. Slice the roast up. Plate slices with some of the onions, garlic, and apple. Enjoy!
