Apple Chip Pork Bites

Apple Chip Pork Bites

Makes 22
Make Ahead Tip: Up to 3 days ahead, make chutney. 1 day ahead sear tenderloin. Refrigerate both until ready to use, then allow to come to room temp.
If you want to assemble ahead of time, rub the apples with a scant amount of lemon or orange juice so the apple doesn’t turn brown.


Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound pork tenderloin, sliced 1/4 inch thick rounds
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 large gala or fuji apple, sliced into 22, 1/4 inch thick disks and then sliced in half into thin half moons (seeds removed)
  • 1/2 cup creamy goat cheese
  • 6 leaves sage, minced


Directions

  1. Salt and pepper both sides of each tenderloin medallion.
  2. In a large sauté pan over medium/high heat add olive oil.
  3. Once the oil is glistening add the pork ( don’t over crowd, do in two batches if needed). Brown for about 1 1/2 minutes, then flip medallions over and brown on the other side until cooked through about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Spread goat cheese evenly over the apples slices, place pork on top of the cheese, top with chutney and finish of with a pinch of sage.
