Maple Apple Pork

Serve up this sweet and savoury main dish with your choice of locally-sourced vegetables. Try to incorporate a dark green vegetable and an orange vegetable. Eating a variety of colors is associated with a variety in nutrients! Try steaming some broccoli or baking a sweet potato!


  • 1 pound boneless pork tenderloin, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 large apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • ¼ cup vegetable stock
  • ¼ cup minced fresh parsley (optional)


Rub pork tenderloin with salt and pepper. Heat a sauté pan on medium heat, then add butter and pork. Sauté until browned (2-3 minutes). Remove pork from pan and add onion. Continue to sauté, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes. Add apples and sauté another 5 minutes. Finally, return the pork to the pan and add maple syrup and stock. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until pork is cooked through, about 5 minutes. Garnish with parsley and serve with some rice or a potato (mashed, baked, etc)
