Autumn Pork Tenderloin

Sized right for two, this rustic and comforting entree is treated to a combination of apples, raisins and nuts. "The fruited sauce adds great flavor," says Tiffany Anderson-Taylor of Gulfport, Florida. "I serve this often, and when I double it for guests, it's often greeted with cheers."

    I made this last night. It took longer to bake then the recipe called for to get to a safe temperature. I think next time I will sear the meat to give it a little color. Overall great fall recipe. It went well with a baked sweet potato.

    I made this for dinner tonight. The cook time took a little longer than expected to get to the right temperature for safety. One thing I would do in the future is sear the meat before placing it in the oven, It was just missing that little extra flavor. Every good combination for a fall dinner. It paired wonderfully with a sweet potato.

    I made this for dinner tonight and it took a little longer to cook than expected to get to the right temperature for safety. One thing I might change in the future would be to brown the meat on the stove top to sear it a little before placing it in the oven. The recipe did have a good flavor especially for the fall. I made sweet potatoes to go with it.

    I have made this on several occasions, for company and every time the guests have raved about it. It is delicious!

    Absolutely delicious! I just threw a couple of potatoes in the oven to bake while the tenderloin was cooking, heated some veggies on the stove and viola! a hot, home-cooked meal in just minutes. Also low-fat ... the only fat in this meal was what we added with butter on the potatoes and veggies. Also, the recipe calls for what amounts to about 1/2 can of apple pie filling. I used the other half with chopped pecans and cinnamon, warmed up the next morning, on waffles!
