Move over boring pork chops with applesauce! Tender, moist sear-roasted pork tenderloin paired with sweet and tangy, soft onions is definitely a few steps up yet just as easy. Serve green and yellow beans and roasted potatoes or brown rice on the side.
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
2. Cut pork tenderloin into 1″ (2.5 cm) thick medallions; sprinkle with a pinch of each salt and pepper.
3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add butter and swirl to coat the pan. Brown pork, turning once, for about 1 minute per side or until golden. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet and roast in the oven for 10 minutes or until a hint of pink remains inside. Remove from oven, tent with foil and let rest for 5 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, add onion, rosemary, and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) of each salt and pepper to the skillet and sauté for about 2 minutes, or until starting to soften. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring, for 8 minutes, or until onions are very soft and lightly browned. Whisk flour into milk; gradually stir into pan. Simmer and stir for 3 minutes, or until thickened. Stir in vinegar and syrup.
5. Spoon onions onto a plate, top with pork and sprinkle with parsley.
