Since tenderloin is a long, thin cut of meat, the cooking time is only about twenty minutes, meaning dinner is on the table quickly—and not to mention, all in one pan. In this recipe, the pork is roasted with apples and fennel, all of which get an orange-scented, honey-mustard glaze. Thyme leaves in the glaze ensure that the flavors skew sophisticated rather than cloying. To ensure a golden-brown crust on the pork, start by roasting everything, then crank it up to broil to seal the glaze. Honeycrisp apples work well in this recipe because they hold their shape when baked. If you can’t find them at your market, Jonagold or Pink Lady apples work well, too. Ingredients 1 1¼ pound pork tenderloin 1 ½ tablespoon olive oil, divided 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided 2 bulbs fennel, sliced ¼- in. thick, fronds reserved 2 sweet-tart apples (such as Honeycrisp), sliced ½-in. thick 3 tablespoon whole-grain mustard 1 tablespoon honey 1 teaspoon orange zest plus 1 Tbsp. fresh juice (from 1 orange) 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme Directions Preheat oven to 450°F with rack in upper third. Rub pork with ½ tablespoon oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper on a rimmed baking sheet. Toss fennel and apples with remaining 1 tablespoon oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Arrange around pork. Whisk mustard, honey, orange zest and juice, and thyme in a small bowl. Brush evenly over pork, fennel, and apples. Roast for 15 minutes. Increase oven temperature to broil. Broil until pork is browned on top and a thermometer inserted in thickest portion registers 145°F, about 5 minutes. Let rest for 10 minutes. Slice and top with fennel fronds.
