Pork Tenderloin and Apples

Who knew this combination was so fantastic? It’s been years since I first made a pork and apple recipes in my slow cooker. I added fresh thyme, apples and carrots and was amazing how tender and delicious the pork tasted.

Here is that first recipe and below it is an oven baked pork chops and apple recipe I’ve made since then:

Just a little bit of soft apple with the bite is all you need, which means most of the time I don’t eat all the carbohydrates from the apples. I’ve made varieties with rosemary, thyme, red onion and carrots. I have found once you have pork and apples together, you can get creative with the other aromas and vegetables.

Pressure Cooker and Pork

Pork tenderloin was one of the harder meats for me to learn in my pressure cooker. Because it so easily becomes dry and the appropriate temperature is lower than other meats (145 F is acceptable compared to 165 for poultry) I would often over or under-cook as I learned pressure cooking times.

For this particular recipe, I used the STEW function on my Instant Pot®. Their website lists the stew function as “best for cooking large cuts of meat at high pressure.” It also says use the normal mode for a very tender meat texture, which is what I choose. (Read more about IP settings here)

  1. Great question, it really comes into the macro chart for your day. The carbs listed are actually a little higher than you might actually eat because most will eat the pork and just a little apple. Most of the apple cooks off and is discarded. Here is a post on macros – https://www.foodcoach.me/weight-loss-surgery-protein-goals/. So to answer the question it could be for someone in weight loss or in maintenance if they are keeping carbs controlled at other meals in the day.
