Spiced Pork Tenderloin With Sauteed Apples

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by pwdcrazy

This recipe is from the Cooking Light October 2010 magazine, and is very tasty! I did make some changes, as I rarely make a recipe exactly as it is listed. The changes I made, where using cardamom rather than nutmeg (as I don't like nutmeg), using about increasing all the amounts on the spices slightly for extra flavor, using sage rather than thyme (as I didn't have thyme), and using white wine rather than cider. My husband's only complaint was that there wasn't enough of the sauce!

I cooked this tonight for my family and they went crazy over them! I am a vegetarian, but by the looks on their faces and the empty plates, it was a big hit! Thanks!
