Ingredients

Serves 4

12 oz pork tenderloin, all visible fat discarded, cut crosswise into 1-inch slices
2 tsp light margarine
1 medium Granny Smith apple, peeled and chopped
1/3 cup chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
5 ounces fat-free evaporated milk
1/8 tsp salt
pinch of white pepper
pinch of ground nutmeg
2 tbsp fresh parsley

Preparation

  1. Using the flat side of a meat mallet, pound the pork slices to 1/4 inch thickness.
  2. Lightly spray a large skillet with a non-stick cooking spray and set over medium-high heat.  Place the pork in a single layer in the skillet.  Cook for about 2 minutes on each side, or until tender and no longer pink in the center.  Transfer to a plate.  Reduce the heat to medium.
  3. In the same skillet, melt the margarine, swirling to coat the bottom.  Cook the apple and onion for 5 minutes, or until the onion is tender, stirring constantly.  Stir in the garlic.  Cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.  Stir in the remaining ingredients except the parsley.  Bring to a simmer.  Simmer for 1 minute, stirring constantly.  Stir in parsley.  Return pork to the skillet.  Spoon the sauce over the pork.  Cook over low heat for 1 minute, or until heated through.
