Pork and apples are a classic pairing, but throw in a little mustard and serve over potatoes and cabbage, and you have a tasty dinner that's anything but boring. Green cabbage should not be overlooked; it's an excellent source of vitamins C and K, a good source of folate and a source of vitamin B6. Make the dish greener by tossing in a handful of coarsely chopped parsley right before serving.
- Portion size 4 servings
- 675 g baby red-skinned potatoes scrubbed and quartered
- 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 340 g pork tenderloins cut in medallions (about 3/4-inch/2 cm thick)
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
- 6 cups chopped green cabbage (about half small head)
- 2 Granny Smith apples coarsely chopped
- 1 onion thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup sodium-reduced chicken broth
- 3 tablespoons grainy mustard
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
MethodToss together potatoes and half each of the oil and pepper until well combined. Spread on parchment paper–lined rimmed baking sheet; roast in 400F (200C) oven for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, rub Dijon mustard over pork; sprinkle with thyme and remaining pepper.
Move potatoes to 1 side of baking sheet; add pork. Roast, turning halfway through, until juices run clear when pork is pierced and just a hint of pink remains inside, or instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part reads 160F (71C), about 12 minutes.
Meanwhile, in large skillet, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat; saute cabbage, apples and onion for 5 minutes.
Stir together vinegar, broth, 1/4 cup water, grainy mustard and sugar; pour over vegetable mixture, stirring to coat. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in roast potatoes. Serve with pork.
