With fall approaching, this apple pork tenderloin is a recipe you definitely need to have in your arsenal. It reeks of fall. It’s nutty, it’s sweet, it’s slightly tangy, it’s filling.
It also comes together super quick, you do have to remember to get it ready and marinading, but other than that it’s a cinch to pull off.
We served our apple pork tenderloin with mashed sweet potatoes, and roasted asparagus. It was the perfect combo. It would also taste great with basically any other potato side as well. Hope you like it!
