Honey Apple Pork with Potatoes


3 tablespoons canola oil

4 russet potatoes- peeled and cut into 1 inch chunks

Kosher salt to taste

1 Smithfield Marinated Hardwood Smoked Bacon and Cracked Black Pepper Pork Tenderloin

2 tablespoons butter

4 apples, cored and chopped into 1 inch chuncks ( use 2 granny smith and 2 fuji apples)

1/4 cup honey

1 lemon, zested and juiced


Add the canola oil to your cast iron skillet and heat on high.  Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.  Season potatoes with kosher salt and pepper to taste. Add the potatoes to half the skillet and the pork to the other half.  brown the pork for about 2 minutes on each side.  After you brown the first two sides swap the potatoes and pork placement in the skillet so the potatoes can capture some of the pork flavors.  Once all four sides of the pork are browned, push the potatoes to one side.  Put pork in middle of skillet and add butter and apples to the empty part of the skillet and stir together until the butter is melted.  Add the honey and stir.  Place in oven for 15 minutes.  When done cooking add the lemon juice over the apples and the zest over the pork and apples.
