Pork & Sauerkraut with Apples


  • 2 pork tenderloins
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and cut into slivers
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of chicken or beef broth
  • 1/2 cup white wine (or Prosecco left over from New Year’s Eve)
  • 2 medium sized apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 1 can sauerkraut



  1. Preheat oven to 400° F. With the tip of a sharp knife, make deep little slits all over the tenderloin and insert the garlic slivers. Season with salt, pepper and 2 tsp cumin.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet on medium high heat and sear the tenderloin well on all sides (about 5 minutes).
  3. Remove the tenderloins from the skillet (do not discard the juices in the skillet) and place in a roasting pan. Add the broth and white wine to the roasting pan. Cover and roast in the oven at 400°F for 20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 145 deg F.
  4. After you’ve placed the tenderloins in the oven, cook the apple slices in the same skillet. Sauté until soft. Add the sauerkraut and 1 tsp cumin and cook together for another minute or two. Prepare dumpling mix according to the recipe on the box (mix 2 1/4 cups of Bisquick and 2/3 cup milk).
  5. After 20 minutes of roasting, remove tenderloins from oven and place on a cutting board. Cover with aluminum foil and let rest for 10 minutes. Increase oven temperature to 450 degrees.
  6. Meanwhile, add apples and sauerkraut to the roasting pan. Top with dumplings, cover, and place back in the oven for 20 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven, slice the pork, serve, and enjoy a lucky New Year.
