Apple Roasted Pork Tenderloin with White Wine Apple Sauce

Apple Roasted Pork W/ White Wine Apple Sauce

This is the follow up recipe to the Creamy Crunchy Mac & Cheese from the other day.  Growing up in Pennsylvania, there was a lot of Dutch culinary influence, including things like Scrapple and Hot Dogs in Apple Sauce.  The key, is the Apple Sauce.  Growing up I ate it on Scrapple, Hot Dogs, Pork Chops, and other various pork related meals.

Today I wanted to do an homage to those flavors by making a White Wine Apple Sauce that had a fruity sweetness that would pair with the Pork.  The Large Fuji Apples add a great depth of sweetness and are phenomenal when roasted.

 

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Bottle Pinot Grigio
  • 2 Large Fuji Apples (Cut into slices)
  • 2 Lb Pork Tenderloin (Usually comes in a package with 2 tenderloins)
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Pepper
