I found this recipe in the magazine Inspire, which used to be offered free at grocery stores where I live.
- 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 pork tenderloin (500g)
- 1 tablespoon of Honey-Dijon dressing
- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup apple juice
- 1 red apple, cored and cut into wedges
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon thyme
- 4 Brie slices, about 1/8 inch thick (we used more because I think our pork tenderloin was a little bigger and/or we cut it into more slices)
1. Mix together salt, paprika and pepper. Slice pork into 8 equal pieces and season with salt mixture. Flatten any thicker pieces.
2. Heat the dressing and oil in a skillet. Add the pork and cook 2 minutes on each side. Add the apple juice, apple, garlic and thyme. Cover and lightly simmer, turning pork once, cooking 3 minutes on each side, until pork in cooked through.
3. Place Brie over pork.
Verdict: I was a little nervous about this dish, because I have never cooked pork that wasn’t bacon, but it was an easy and delicious recipe. For my tastes, I think I let the apple wedges get a little too mush making sure that the pork was cut through. I also wish that the apple juice left in the skillet had been a little thicker so that it could be used as a sauce.
