Instructions Checklist
  • Heat broiler, with rack set 4 inches from heat. On a broilerproof rimmed baking sheet, rub pork with 1 tablespoon oil; generously season with salt and pepper. Broil, until pork registers 145 degrees on an instant-read thermometer, 12 to 14 minutes. Transfer to a plate, cover loosely with aluminum foil, and let rest, 10 minutes (temperature will rise about 5 degrees as it sits).

Thinly slice pork, and serve with apples and leeks.

This was super easy and good. We served with steamed asparagus and crispy potatoes. Vicki370, the braised pork shoulder recipe uses fennel and is absolutely amazing!

The apples are interesting and a good compliment to the pork. I broiled the pork and it took just 15 minutes to cook. It was still pink, but read 145 degrees on my instant read thermometer, I did not have red wine vinegar, so I used white wine vinegar. Now I need more recipes for the fennel seeds I bought.

This was my first try at pork tenderloin, it was still pink and I had to keep putting it back in the oven, meanwhile I scorched the leeks, oops, and luckily I added fried potatoes to the menu. It was really a failure, but on my part, I plan to keep trying.

This was deliciousl We grilled the tenderloin instead of broiling it. The charcoal flavor was outstanding with the apples and leeks.

This was terrific and easy. I served it with a simple side of seasoned, steamed green beans. It's great for a weeknight because it's so quick to fix...makes it very easy to entertain during the work week.

This was spectacular! I served this with the Mashed Sweet Potatoes recipe from this site. Just a perfect fall meal. I did add chili powder and a little cayenne to the sweet potatoes. It was also good as leftovers the next day!
