From the Book: Pork tenderloin is a cut of meat that borderlines being expensive, unless you can get it on sale. To make it even more affordable, I’ve mixed in a few things with it. The nice part is that this easy filling weeknight meal only takes a short time to make! Enjoy this with cauliflower rice {see page 166}, butternut squash {page 111 or 116}, or zucchini noodles {page 37}.
  • coconut oil, ghee, or butter
  • 1 medium onion, medium-diced
  • 3⁄4 green apple
  • 1 lb. pork tenderloin
  • 2 tsp. rosemary
  • 2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • salt and pepper
  1. Heat a large skillet on medium heat with coconut oil, ghee, or butter. Add in your onions and let them start to soften.
  2. While that’s happening, chop your 3⁄4 apple into bite-size pieces and add that into the skillet as well. The extra quarter of the apple is a snack for you and whatever helpers you have in the kitchen {for me it’s normally the dog—she loves her apples}.
  3. While those are getting all friendly, cut your tenderloin into bite-size pieces. Remove any fat or sinew if you don’t like eating it {I don’t, so I trim it down}.
  4. Add the pork tenderloin into the pan along with the rosemary, apple cider vinegar, and salt and pepper.
  5. Allow it to finish cooking and then serve.
