Fast and Easy Recipe For Pork Tenderloin With Brussels Sprouts

Monday's Leftovers: Roasted Pork With Brussels Sprouts

I'm never happier than when I discover a good sale at the meat counter, and on a really generous week, my grocer offers two-for-one deals on a healthy and quick-cooking cut, pork tenderloin. I'll buy two, but diversify my plate by making a hearty pork, apple, and squash meal one night, then digging in to a completely different pork meal the following evening. Tonight, utilize leftover pork by oven-roasting it with a light seasoning, all the while quick-sautéing brussels sprouts, almonds, and apricots until wilted and caramelized. If you prefer extra flavor, dry-rub the pork spices and herbs like cumin, paprika, dried sage, and oregano. Get the recipe now.
