During Easter time in Ireland, I love to whip up this easy dish for my family. My mom always has three other types of meat in the oven, usually a duck, a goose, and a turkey. Sometimes beef, too. So trying to find the space to make this meat ends up in an annual argument. Every. Single. Time. Just a snippet of Easter with the O’Keeffes.

Listen to Stuart describe this recipe on The Faith Middleton Food Schmooze®.
- 1 1-1/2-pound pork tenderloin
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 cup grainy mustard such as Grey Poupon
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 tablespoons white wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
- 4 cups shredded cabbage
- 1 apple grated through medium to large holes on grater
- 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
Servings: -6 people
- Preheat oven to 400˚F.
- Pat pork dry and season well with salt and pepper. In a bowl, whisk mustard and olive oil together. Using your hands, rub mixture all over pork tenderloin. Let meat sit until it comes to room temperature, at least 20 to 30 minutes.
- Place pork on a wire rack on a rimmed 36 x 18-inch baking sheet lined with foil. Place in the oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350˚F. and cook for another 10 minutes or until meat reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees on a meat thermometer. Remove from oven, set aside, and cover with aluminum foil.
- In a skillet, heat butter, vinegar, and sugar over low heat until the sugar is dissolved. Then turn up the heat to medium-high, add the cabbage and apple, and cook until the cabbage has wilted somewhat, about 10 minutes. Stir in chopped parsley.
- STOP! AS CABBAGE AND APPLE COOK, WIPE DOWN BAKING SHEET, WIRE RACK, AND BOWL.
- Remove foil from pork and slice.
- Spread cabbage on a platter, top with pork slices, and serve.
