A match made in fall heaven, cooking pork tenderloin in the apple cider is a great way to ensure tender, juicy pork every single time. A naturally low fat, lean cut of pork, the sweet and tart cider helps keep the end result nice and moist.

Before roasting the pork in the oven, I love to create a quick spice rub and sear the pork on a hot stove to create a crust on all sides. Ground spices work perfectly fine but I find that toasting whole spices in a warm pan for about 45 seconds really maximizes the spices by releasing their natural aromas.

Once the crust has formed on the pork, I add the apple cider to the hot pan then use a wooden spoon to deglaze all the delicious yummy browned bits at the bottom. These simple steps that you take along the way will ensure you end up with a rich, developed flavor at the end. 

Tender, juicy and moist every single time, I promise this easy roasted apple cider pork tenderloin recipe will become a regular in your dinner time rotation.

  1. This easy recipe is delicious. I cooked it tonight for a simple holiday dinner for two. My husband loved it. I added 1 1/2 Tbsp of flour to 1/4 cup creme fraiche then to the sauce after cooking. Yum! Thank you for sharing the recipe. Happy Holidays!
