Sliced Pork Tenderloin with Sauteed Apples


I seem to have a complicated relationship with pork. Every time I cook it I seem to overcook it and it’s dry and hard to eat. Today I was bound and determined to not over cook it. I succeeded, but one was a little under done. No problem I just cooked it for a little bit longer. This is one of three recipes that my husband, Alex, picked out for me to cook for meals. He wanted to have new things made that he would be more likely to enjoy.

If I make this again I think that I’ll thinly slice the shallots (like the original recipe calls) instead of dicing them. Probably cook the apple slices longer so that they are softer. This dish sated our hunger, but I’m not sure if it worth a repeat.
