Ingredients
  • 1 ½ - 2 lb pork tenderloin
  • 2 tsp butter melted
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp dried marjoram or sage
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 1 small onion sliced
  • 1 firm apple cored and sliced, un-peeled Cider-Garlic Glaze:
  • 1 ½ cups apple cider
  • 4-6 cloves garlic peeled and left whole
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven broiler and set the rack to 6 inches below the element.
  2. Rub melted butter over the tenderloin. In a shallow dish, mix together herbs, salt & pepper. Roll pork in herb mixture, pressing it in well. Place in a small roasting pan, and broil to brown on all sides.
  3. Set oven to 325° F. Pour in apple juice, add onion and apple. Cover with foil. Roast about 15 minutes until pork is done to an internal temperature of 150º F (medium), turning the tenderloin occasionally.
  4. When ready, remove from the oven and allow to rest (still covered) for 5 minutes or so.
To Make The Glaze:
  1. Pour cider into a heavy bottomed saucepan. Add garlic cloves and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer until only 1/2 cup remains. Pour in the pan juices from the pork and return to a boil. Reduce to sauce consistency of about ¾ cup volume. Strain (if desired) and serve with pork.
