Be prepared to hand out recipes after you pass around this impressive pork entree. Dinner guests can't believe how easy it is. I think leftovers would be great in sandwiches…but I've never had any to sample!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 pork tenderloins (1 pound each)
  • 6 tablespoons butter, divided

  • APPLE CREAM SAUCE:
  • 1 cup apple cider or juice

  • 1. Cut pork into 1/2-in. slices; flatten to 1/4-in. thickness. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook pork in batches in 3 tablespoons butter until juices run clear. Remove to a serving platter and keep warm.
  • 2. In the same skillet, saute onions and mushrooms in remaining butter for 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add apples; saute for 3-4 minutes or until vegetables and apples are tender. Arrange over pork.
  • 3. Add cider and cream cheese to the skillet; cook and stir over medium heat for 3 minutes or until cheese is melted and sauce is smooth. Stir in brandy and basil; heat through. Serve with pork and vegetables. Yield: 6 servings.
