The secret to this incredible one-pot pork entrée is a pretty magical tangy cider glaze. Best of all? One pot means kitchen clean up is a snap!
- 3 cups apple cider
- 1 cup low sodium fat-free chicken broth
- 1 TB Dijon mustard
- 2 tsp caraway seeds
- 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 ½ lb pork tenderloin trimmed, cut into 6, even, crosswise pieces
- 2 1/2 tsp salt divided
- ½ tsp pepper
- 2 cups red onions thinly sliced (~ 2 large)
- 8 oz cremini mushrooms sliced (~ 3 ½ cups)
- 1 lb baby potatoes rinsed and quartered (~ 2 ½ cups)
- 3 ½ cups shredded red cabbage 10 oz package
- 2 tsp fresh thyme chopped
Combine cider, chicken broth, mustard, & caraway seeds in a large bowl. Season pork sections with 1 tsp salt & ½ tsp pepper. Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over high heat. Add pork sections and brown well on all sides, approximately 6-7 minutes total. Remove pork to plate.
Add onions, mushrooms, and ½ tsp salt and cook, stirring often, for 6-7 minutes or until beginning to brown. Stir in potatoes, nestle in browned pork sections, and pour cider-broth mixture over all. Bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes, uncovered. Add cabbage to pan and cook an additional 2 minutes or until wilted. Remove pork sections and place on a cutting board to rest. Use a slotted spoon to remove vegetables from pan to a serving bowl.
Continue to boil cider mixture to reduce until thick and syrupy, approximately 8-10 minutes. While cider glaze reduces, stir an additional 1 tsp salt into vegetable mixture, slice pork into medallions and place on top of vegetables. When reduced, pour warm cider glaze over pork & vegetables, garnish with thyme, and serve.
