Today I serve you a recipe that I’ve made for quite a while: Pork loin with caramelized apples. Quick and easy and can be served within 20 minutes. Great on almost any occasion and as a nice side effect: kids love them!
This dish is especially nice in fall when the apple harvest is in full bloom and the juiciest apples are yours to get. Those apples caramelize almost without the addition of sugar in the pan.
Tips for preparing pork loin
If you prepare the meat well you get much more flavor. Here are some tips to prepare the perfect tenderloin for this recipe.
- Remove the meat for about 15 minutes before cooking from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature. Therefor, the meat heats more even in the pan (the inside is not too cold relative to the outside). You would otherwise be able to get a raw meat on the inside and done meat on the outside.
- In this recipe we use slices of pork tenderloin. This has the advantage that you only need them briefly bake in a frying pan (maximum 5 minutes) and therefor the meat won’t dry out.
- After baking, let your meat rest for 5 minutes before serving under aluminium foil. The sap then have a chance to rest.
