Marinade Ingredients:

  • 12 ounces Apple Cider
  • 1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 2 teaspoons Dry Mustard
  • 3 cloves Garlic Peeled and diced
  • 4 sprigs Fresh Thyme Lemon thyme if available
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Rest of Ingredients

  • 2 1-pounds Pork Tenderloin Rinsed and patted dry with paper towels
  • 1/2 large Vidalia Sweet Onion Peeled and thinly sliced, yellow onion may be substituted
  • 1 large Apple Cored and sliced into thin wedges
  • 1 pound Small Red Potatoes Cut into bite size pieces


Marinating the ingredients:

  • Add the apple cider, vegetable oil, mustard, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper into a gallon zippered plastic bag.
  • Seal and shake to combine the ingredients.
  • Add the pork tenderloins, and seal the bag squeezing as much air out as possible.
  • Refrigerate for at least four hours or overnight.

Cooking the Tenderloins:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a 13 by 9-inch baking dish add the potatoes in a single layer, followed by the onions and apple slices.
  • Place the pork tenderloin on top and evenly distribute the marinade in the pan.
  • Bake for 45 minutes, check the internal temperature with a food thermometer and remove the pork tenderloins from the oven when they reach 145°F (for medium rare) or 150°F (medium).
  • When removing the tenderloins, check the potatoes for doneness. If cooked, remove with the tenderloins; if needing to cook longer leave in the oven until they are done.
  • Allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
