1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

2 Tbsp maple syrup ( we like the whisky barrel but any can be used)

3 Tbsp minced onion or shallots

2 Tbsp chopped raisins

Pinch chili pepper


2 lbs of pork tenderloin ( 2 tenderloins)

Pinch of  salt/ pepper

1.5 Tbsp olive oil

2 tsp red wine vinegar

2 apples sliced



Put everything together in a sauce pan and bring to a boil , reduces to a simmer for 8-10 minutes. It will continue to thicken while it cools


Season the pork with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large cast-iron skillet (or any pan that can go in the oven) over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan, and cook, turning the pork over and browning each side. Place apples in the pan and vinegar, and then place pan in oven; bake at 450° for 15 - 20 minutes or until a thermometer registers 155° (slightly pink). Remove from oven; let stand 10 minutes. Slice pork crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Serve with sauce.
