That changed with this recipe – I will be making it when that craving hits. The pork tenderloin roasts to perfection, is moist, and so flavorful. Not to mention, those apples soak up the juices from the roast and the applesauce mixture. So good.

How to Make Easy One Skillet Pork Tenderloin with Rosemary and Apples
Preheat your oven to 350°F.
In a small bowl, combine the 1 cup unsweetened applesauce, 3 tablespoons raw honey, 2 tablespoons sugar-free Dijon mustard, and 3 tablespoons chopped rosemary. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and set aside.

Remove from heat and spread half of the applesauce mixture all over the top and sides of the pork.
Arrange the chopped apples around the sides of the pork and place in the pre-heated oven.
Roast for 20 minutes, then remove from oven and turn the pork over. Brush with remaining applesauce mixture and return to the oven for another 20-25 minutes, or until the pork is cooked through. Be sure to cook pork to a safe internal temperature of 145 degrees F.
