“My husband doesn’t usually like healthy meals, but this pretty entree is one of his favorites,” assures Melissa Holtz of Covington, Kentucky.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. Bake: 50 min.
  • Makes
    2 servings


  • 1 pork tenderloin (3/4 pound)
  • Dash salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped peeled tart apple
  • 1/4 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons chopped celery
  • 1 tablespoon chopped green onion
  • 1 tablespoon raisins
  • 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts
  • Dash ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened apple juice, divided
  • SAUCE:
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple juice


  • Cut a lengthwise slit down center of tenderloin to within 1/2 in. of bottom; open so meat lies flat. Cover with plastic wrap; flatten to 1/2-in. thickness. Remove wrap; sprinkle meat with salt and pepper.
  • In a small bowl, combine the apple, bread crumbs, celery, onion, raisins, walnuts and nutmeg. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon apple juice; toss to coat. Spoon over pork. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting at a long side; tie with kitchen string and secure ends with toothpicks.
  • Place on a rack in a shallow roasting pan coated with cooking spray. Drizzle with 1-1/2 teaspoons apple juice. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 30 minutes. Brush with remaining apple juice. Bake 20-25 minutes longer or until meat juices run clear and a thermometer reads 160°. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.
  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine cornstarch and cinnamon. Gradually whisk in apple juice until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with pork.

    Good enough to serve in a restaurant. Had all ingredients on hand. Inexpensive, and everyone liked it. Will make again.

    Absolutely delicious! My very picky son loved it...he even had seconds :D It was so easy to make and very moist. I did substitute dried cranberries for raisins.
