My Maple Glazed Pork recipe will blow your taste buds out of the water! It’s even better the second time around, if you can believe that! Here are the things you need to assemble to wow your next dinner guests, even if those guests are your picky little children.
- Pork Tenderloin
- Butternut squash
- 2 Apples
- 2 Packages of Sage
- 1/4 c of Brown Sugar
- 4 slices of bacon
- 1/4 c of Maple Syrup
- 6 Tbsp of butter
- 1/4 c of dijon mustard
Pre-heat your oven to 450. Rinse and pat dry your pork tenderloin then season with salt and pepper. Put a little olive oil and butter in a family sized skillet and brown the tenderloin on all sides, this helps seal in all the juices.
Peel and cube both the butternut squash and the apples, place them in a 9×13 dish. Dice up the bacon and one entire package of sage leaves and sprinkle over the vegetables. Now for the yummy sauce! In a small sauce pan, melt 2 tbsp of butter, 1/4 c of brown sugar and 1/4 c of maple syrup until it’s completely combined. Pour this mixture over the veggies!
Now place the tenderloins on top of the veggies. Take the sauce pan out of the sink where you ditched it a few minutes ago (you are using the same ingredients so no need to even give it a rinse) and heat 4 tbsp of butter, 1/4 c maple syrup, 1/4 c dijon mustard, and 2 tbsp of chopped sage until, once again…. completely melted together and pour over the tenderloins/veggies.
Bake in the 450 degree oven, uncovered for at least 40 minutes (this depends on how you like your pork, we like ours pink in the middle). If you find the veggies aren’t soft enough take the tenderloins out of the oven and placed on a plate in the microwave to keep warm. Cook the veggies a little longer until they are tender enough for your family. I love this dish! Maple Glazed Pork tenderloin is my new favorite dish, I think it’s the maple and dijon melted together. I’m going back for some leftovers as we speak!!
