How was everyone’s weekend? Mine was packed with lots of fall fun
Our trip to Columbus resulted in a fall-fun outing to the farm! Peter and Tiffany thought it would be fun to take the girls and the Mister and I happily tagged along
Ellia was pretty amped to check out all the pumpkins.
The Mister was pretty amped to get some fresh kettle corn!
Perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon
I thought I’d continue with the fall-spirit and provide you all with my most successful dish this season (so far – I have something else in the works, though!).
It is a great way to utilize some of that farm-fresh apple cider — you are gonna love it.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 to 1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 cup apple cider
- 1 teaspoon thyme
- salt and pepper
First, pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.
Next slice up that tenderloin! Don’t go thicker than 1/4 inch slices, or you’ll have trouble cooking the pork through. Now season with salt and pepper.
Place an oven-safe pan on medium heat and bring the apple cider and apple cider vinegar to a simmer. Add the thyme and mix. Now it’s time to add your pork tenderloin — cook about 5 minutes on each side.
Cover and place in the oven — you are halfway there!
Cook for about 20 minutes, turning the pork halfway through. Next, remove from oven and place pork on a plate, covering to keep warm.
Return the liquid to the stove top and simmer about 10 minutes, until sauce thickens. Be sure to keep stirring to prevent smoke and burn!
Now ladle the sauce on top of your pork and enjoy!
Pair this dish with a fresh salad and some bread and butta for a simple, nutritious and fall-licious meal
