Apples are starting to come back into season and this is a great way to cook a pork tenderloin for a large group. The fat really makes the carrots and apples taste wonderful.

Roast Pork Tenderloin with Apples and Carrots

  • 1 4-5 lb pork tenderloin
  • 5 apples cored and sliced in half (galas or fujis work best)
  • 10 carrots cut into large chunks
  • 6 tbsp fresh rosemary chopped fine
  • 1 tbsp sea salt
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Black pepper

Grind rosemary, salt, garlic, pepper and oil together to form a paste. Spread paste all over pork and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate pork for at least 4 hours and up to 24. In a large roasting pan arrange apples cut side up with carrots. Place pork on top of apples and roast at 365 degrees until done, about 2 hours. Remove meat from pan and let rest 15 minutes before slicing. Serve with apples and carrots.

    Love this!! You know… it seems that people don’t cook pork roast as much as they used to. I haven’t made one in years….. what have I been thinking?! I also love the idea of cooking the roast with apples & carrots. I think, when I make this (which I hope is soon) I’m gonna add some sliced onion as well. (Maybe a bit later ’cause I don’t want them to burn.) A great post Rufus !!

    Roasted fruit goes so well with pork. Yours looks delicious with all the chopped rosemary on top. The trees in our orchard are loaded with apples this year.

  5. I have apples and tons of rosemary, now I just need to go get the pork!

    Now that just screams autumn to me, pork and apples are a perfect combo. We’re going through a heat wave for a couple of days, but I’ll take it, autumn is just around the corner.

  7. The inclusion of apples really sounds fantastic.

  8. Don’t you just love creating recipes this time of year? Fall has the best recipes and this is definitely one them. Looks great!
