Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place 1 rack in center position and another 4 inches from broiler. Spray a rimmed sheet pan with cooking spray.

  • Toss together cabbage and apples with 3 tablespoons oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper on prepared sheet pan and arrange in an even layer.

  • Pat pork dry and season with remaining teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Whisk together remaining 2 tablespoons oil with mustard, vinegar, honey, and thyme in a small bowl. Spread over all sides of pork and set pork on top of cabbage and apples.

  • Roast on center rack until an instant-read thermometer inserted into center of thickest part of each tenderloin registers 130 degrees F, about 25 minutes.

  • Remove pan from oven and turn oven to broil. When broiler is hot, put pan on top rack and broil until pork has a golden-brown crust, thermometer registers 145 degrees F, and cabbage and apples have a light char, about 5 minutes. Cover pan loosely with foil and let pork rest 10 minutes before slicing. Serve pork warm with cabbage and apples, sprinkled with parsley (if using).

I am a husband/father and I actually made this dinner. It was super easy and a big hit with my family. My wife also appreciated a break from cooking Sunday dinner. I am pretty happy with myself. Read More

It was pretty good but I like my food to have a bit more flavour. I used plain white vinegar because I didn't have white wine vinegar and added an additional teaspoon of honey. Also I only used one pork tenderloin and 25 minutes was not long enough. I needed to cook it for a total of an hour before the juices were running clear. When I broiled it on low for 5 minutes the cabbage around the edges of the pan got burnt. If do this again I'll leave the rack in the middle instead of moving it 4" away from the element. I'd also add onion and maybe I'll use a bit of mustard powder so that it has a stronger mustard taste as well. Read More

This recipe was very good. I doubled the recipe because my pork tenderloins were 2 lbs each. I used a whole head of cabbage, an onion and a red bell pepper. I put in a roasting pan, after 20 min everything was still raw, I ended up roasting for 1 hour which cooked the veggies perfectly but made the pork dry. I live at high altitude so everything tends to take a little longer. The flavor of the sauce didn't really permeate the meat, maybe because I overcooked it. I think I will marinade the meat next time. I also think I'll start the veggies roasting and add the meat a little later. This recipe has real potential and will definitely make again. Read More

I cooked the cabbage and apples for 10 or 15 minutes on their own, then added the tenderloin. Once the tenderloin was cooked, the apples/cabbage were also ready. Tasty! I would make it again. Read More

Surprising how delicious this was. Omitted the apples and just used a whole head of red cabbage seasoned with olive oil and salt and pepper. Placed a marinated pork loin on top of cabbage (hickory & bacon.) Roasted with a tray of acorn squash. Simple meal that hubby raved over. Took about 25 minutes for the squash and a little longer to get the pork to 145. Juicy and flavorful. A definite "make it again" dinner. Read More

The flavors in this were really good. I had to make a few minor changes due to what was on hand - I used dried thyme and used half regular Dijon mustard and half spicy brown mustard I think it would have been as good if I had just used one or the other. My mistake was I used a loin of pork instead of the two small tenderloins so it took longer to roast so my cabbage and apples got burnt on the bottom. Read More

We all found that the cabbage tasted better the next day after I had cooked it about 15 minutes longer. Next time I will cook the cabbage for about 20 minutes before putting the pork on top. It was too crunchy. Read More
