I love the combination of apples and pork. I remember growing up, I would always eat applesauce with my pork chops (anyone else?!) Well since growing up, I have gotten a bit more sophisticated with my pork/apple combination.

This recipe was inspired by Trader Joes Pumpkin Butter. This week, I had a pork tenderloin thawed in the refrigerator, but didn’t know what to do with it until I saw the pumpkin butter in my cabinet and apples in my fridge. Apples + pumpkin butter + pork= yes please! I knew this had to be a winning fall combination!

I was a little hesitant about my “secret” pumpkin butter ingredient, but it turned out great and was a hit with my whole family! The flavors are the perfect combination of sweet, savory, and fall spice.
