That’s right, I said it. A pork tenderloin dinner made in a single cast iron skillet.
I saw a video on this meal and wanted to give it a whirl. It looked simple enough, and even tasty enough, to make for friends. So going purely off of the video I was able to pull it off quite well, IMHO. I ran over to Bass Pro Shop and bought my first cast iron skillet. I’ve always wanted one so it was the perfect chance to persuade my wife. “Look babe, I’ll make dinner but I need to get a few things.” One of them being this bad boy.
I adjusted the ingredients just a tad to add more veggies. This recipe will easily serve six hangry friends and family. I’d say the total time, prep and all, is no more than 30 minutes.
Here’s what you’ll need
2 pounds of boneless pork tenderloin (most stores sell it that size vacuum sealed)
Olive Oil (personal preference)
6 cloves of garlic
2 large red onions, sliced
3 medium apples, sliced (the crisper the better)
1 sweet potato, cubed
1 cup hard cider
Preheat the oven to 375. You’ll also need to soften up the sweet potato cubes, so microwave them for four minutes.
Along with some olive oil sear the tenderloin in a very hot skillet, turning to brown all sides. Add salt and pepper to your liking. Once they’re brown all the way around take it out and set to the side.
