  • Heat olive oil and butter in an ovenproof skillet over high heat. Sear pork until brown, about 2 minutes per side. At the same time, brown apples, cut side down. Turn apples over; transfer skillet to oven, and roast until the internal temperature of the meat, when taken with a meat thermometer, is 145 degrees for medium and 150 degrees for medium well, about 10 minutes.

  • Remove meat to a cutting board, and let rest 10 minutes; reserve apples in a bowl. Return skillet to stovetop; deglaze skillet with apple cider, and reduce by half, about 2 minutes. Stir in vinegar, reduce 1 minute longer.

  • Remove kitchen twine from tenderloins, and slice into 3/8-inch medallions. Place cabbage on platter, arrange pork medallions over cabbage, and top with apple halves and sauce. Garnish with thyme sprigs. Serve hot.

The taste was delicious! The combination of the pork tenderloin, apples, cabbage, and sauce was perfect. My cook time for the pork was much longer than 10 minutes to reach 140, even at 425 degrees. I ended up unrolling it so the tail end was cooked through.

This is a quick and easy recipe. If you follow the recipe closely, you are guaranteed success. I have made this 3-4 times with great, consistent results. In a pinch, I've substituted apple juice for the apple cider and that has worked well.
