Roast Pork with Apples and Cranberries

Fiona Haynes
This lean roast pork tenderloin with apples and cranberries makes a great family meal during the holiday season or as an alternative Thanksgiving dinner. The beauty of this dish, apart from being low in fat, is that it can be served in under an hour, which, for a Sunday dinner or special occasion, is pretty fast.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 2 1-pound pork tenderloins, trimmed of fat and silver skin
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and thickly sliced
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 2 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Spray a small, shallow roasting pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Place pork tenderloins in roasting pan, tucking thin ends under a little to ensure even roasting.

Surround with apple slices and sprinkle with cranberries.

Add apple cider and cider vinegar, then sprinkle sugar and cinnamon on top of pork.

Roast for 30-40 minutes, basting halfway through, until thermometer registers 155 degrees.

Allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

Serves 6-8

I had a small roast that I had spiced up before I froze it so it was more spiced than the recipe called for (rosemary, pepper, garlic.) I also added chicken broth to it to keep it moist vice the vinegar and neither fresh or frozen cranberries were to be found so I used dried ones that I soaked in sweet Vermouth. Basically a brand new recipe I guess. But it was delicious.
