  • 1 pork tenderloin (1 pound)
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary or 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large apple, sliced
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened apple juice
  • 3 tablespoons dried tart cherries
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 package (8.8 ounces) ready-to-serve brown rice


  1. Cut tenderloin crosswise into 12 slices; sprinkle with rosemary, thyme and celery salt. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Brown pork on both sides; remove from pan.
  2. In same skillet, combine apple, apple juice, cherries, honey and vinegar. Bring to a boil, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 3-4 minutes or just until apple is tender.
