DIRECTIONS

  • Oven 350°F.
  • Peel, core and rough chop the apple. In a small, covered sauce pan add 1/3 C water and chopped apple. Over medium/low heat, cook into unsweetened apple sauce. If the apple sauce is a bit lumpy, that's OK; it will cook down during the roasting process. Mix well, then set aside for later use.
  • Clean and quarter mushrooms.
  • Add about 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil to a saute pan deep enough to hold all the mushrooms, with stems, and sliced onion. Over medium heat, clarify onion; add mushrooms and garlic; cover the pan, and allow to saute, for about 5 minutes.
  • Add rubbed sage to mushroom/onion mixture and combine well. Remove from heat.
  • In a mixing bowl, place honey, teriyaki sauce, Dijon mustard; add unsweetened apple sauce (which you had set aside).
  • Add mushrooms and onion to honey mixture and mix well.
  • Add additional olive oil to same frying pan and brown pork tenderloin on all sides.
  • Arrange pork tenderloin in oval, roasting pan with a cover. Roasting pan should comfortably accommodate all 4 tenderloins. Pour prepared mushroom/onion mixture over tenderloins in roasting pan. Cover and bake one hour.
  • When done, remove tenderloin from roasting pan to warmed serving platter. Cover with foil and allow to sit for about 10 minutes. Return roasting pan to low heat on stove top, to keep the sauce hot.
  • Carve each tenderloin in half. You will have 8 tenderloin pieces, 6 to 8 oz. each. Arrange on warmed serving platter and spoon mushroom/onion sauce over the meat. Arrange cherry tomatoes around the serving platter; garnish with sprigs of fresh herbs.
  • Serve with rice, orzo, potatoes, and vegetables of your choosing; additional sauce in a gravy boat would not go amiss.
