    CHRISSYG's Note:

    Don’t let the brussel sprouts scare you! They’re DELICIOUS in this dish. I found this in the Philadelphia Inquirer Newspaper the other day and immediately made it. We loved it, it’s a great “company dish” too, easy, quick impressive and very very tasty. (can be made somewhat ahead of time and ‘held’ at a warm temp, I just suggest if you do, that you slice the pork at the very last minute)

      This was really good! The apple juice really cuts the bitterness of the brussel sprouts. I added some greek seasoning as a rub to the pork tenderloin and used turkey bacon. Loved this recipe, and its paleo! Thanks for posting!
