A note about serious food allergies

Sweet isn't just for breakfast cereals and desserts. Sweet can meld with savory in the most amazing ways, including this pork tenderloin with demi sauce. The sauce mixes classic peppy and sharp flavors like mustard and vinegar, balanced by brown sugar, and softened with rich butter. Add a sweet apple and fresh Brussels, and you have a hash fit for a King. (Or Queen, whatever works for you!) Tip: if you're looking for the right texture for the sauce, dip a spoon in and see how well it sticks to the back. If it coats, you're good to go.

Before You Cook

  • 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim stems off Brussels sprouts and halve vertically (quarter if larger than a ping-pong ball). Quarter apple and remove core. Cut into ½" dice. Combine apple and 1 tsp. olive oil in a mixing bowl until apple is coated. Coarsely chop almonds. Pat pork dry, and season all over with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

    Start the Brussels Sprouts Hash

    Place Brussels sprouts on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, spice rub, and a pinch of salt. Massage oil and seasoning into Brussels sprouts. Spread into a single layer on one half of baking sheet. Roast in hot oven until starting to brown, 6-8 minutes. Remove from oven. Brussels sprouts will finish cooking in a later step. While Brussels sprouts roast, sear pork.

    Cook Pork and Finish Hash

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add pork to hot pan and sear on two sides until browned, 2-4 minutes per side. Transfer pork to empty half of baking sheet. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean. Roast in hot oven, 8 minutes. Remove from oven and pile apple on Brussels sprouts. Roast again until vegetables are tender and pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 6-8 minutes. Rest cooked pork at least 5 minutes. While pork rests, make sauce.

    Make the Sauce
