Welcome the fall season with this recipe for sage & cider pork tenderloin. 

Can you believe fall is already in full swing? The kids are starting to get settled in school, the leaves are starting to change, and you’re beginning to feel that distinct autumn crispness in the air.

Celebrate the start of the new season with this hearty and healthy fall recipe for sage & cider pork tenderloin that your whole family is sure to love!

  • 1 pound of pork tenderloin, trimmed
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • ¼ cup of shallots, finely chopped
  • 1 ½ teaspoons of sage, chopped + fresh sage leaves for garnishing
  • ¼ cup of apple cider
  • 4 teaspoons of sherry vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
  • ½ cup of low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon of cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon of heavy whipping cream

Slice the pork crosswise to create 12 pieces. Pour two teaspoons of olive oil into a large skillet to heat up over medium-high, then sprinkle salt and pepper over both sides of the pork pieces. Add the pork to the skillet and cook until done, about three minutes per side. Set the pork aside somewhere it will keep warm.

Add the rest of the olive oil, shallots, and chopped sage to the skillet and cook for two minutes. Whisk in the apple cider, sherry vinegar, Dijon mustard, chicken broth, and cornstarch and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and cook until the sauce thickens (about two minutes), stirring constantly. Take off the heat and stir in the whipping cream.

Plate three pieces of pork, top with your cider sauce, and garnish with fresh sage leaves. Enjoy!
