Cranberry Apple Pork Tenderloin




     Since it is my favorite season of fall I have been trying out all the fun seasonal recipes. I am sure you can find tons of pumpkin recipes, but did you know there are tons of other fruit and vegetables that are out and on sale in the fall. Apples and cranberries are one of the ones that go on sale in the fall. I tend to stock up on both. So when I had some pork tenderloin to make the other day I decided to mix everything together and it came out extremely yummy and it was very easy to do. I highly recommend this dish not just for everyday dinner but if you have dinner guests or for special occasions as well. It is easy to do and really delicious and different. A great fall entree!

Cranberry Apple Pork Tenderloing
Serves 4-6
(Please note I made a double batch of this so pictures are larger then a single portion may appear however, the recipe is for a single batch)

Ingredients:
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. black pepper
- 2 TBSPS olive oil
- 2 lbs. Pork Tenderloin, sliced into 1/2" thick rounds
- 3/4 cup white wine (if you are a wine person, Riesling or Chardonnay works best)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup Balsamic vinegar
- 1 TBSP Corn Starch
- 1 cup of cranberries, whole (if frozen be sure they are thawed)
- 2 apples peeled and diced (I used Granny smith feel free to experiment and let me know what others work)
- 1 tsp. Rosemary
- 1/2 tsp. Nutmeg

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In shallow bowl mix flour, salt, and pepper and set aside.



In a large skillet, add olive oil and heat over medium high. Dredge pork rounds in flour and place in skillet, cook 4-5 minutes each side until browned and no longer pink;



 remove from skillet and lay in casserole dish.



Reduce skillet heat to medium and add wine and water. In a separate bowl mix balsamic vinegar, cornstarch, rosemary and nutmeg and stir. Pour vinegar mixture in with wine and water on skillet and add cranberries and apples. Cook about five minutes until the sauce thickens; remove from heat.



 Pour sauce over pork tenderloin pieces and put into the oven. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.



 Most of this is already cooked, but it ensures your pork is cooked well and keeps everything at the same temperature for serving. Enjoy!
