Roast Pork with Apples & Onions in the Ninja

The sweetness of the apples and onions really complements the pork. #pork #apples #ninja #recipe

So Friday, when we went to get something out of the chest freezer, we noticed that the loaf of bread was thawed. After careful inspection, I found that Baby Bunnie had chewed through the power cord to the freezer.

I started putting as much as I could into our other freezer.  While doing that, I decided to pull out a package of meat.  Eenie-meenie-miney-moe. I ended up pulling a 2lb package of pork tenderloin out to thaw.

Looking up recipes, I found this one for a pork roast.  I know tenderloin & roast isn’t the same, but it was simple, I had the ingredients, so I went with it.  I changed it up a bit.

It didn’t take as long to cook as the roast would have.  It turned out wonderful!  The caramelized onion with soft apples and seared pork.  Mmmm-mmm!  I cooked it in my Ninja 3-in-1, so I only had one pan to clean. 😉 Smart.

I LOVE my Ninja.  I have the older 3-in-1 model.  I’ve been contemplating getting the newer one.  It does so much more!

We had it for lunch with a package of easy-to-prepare flavored noodles.  Hey, I’m starting out small. 😉

I also had made waffles for breakfast, and tuna melts for dinner.  Three meals in one day?  Go me!


The original recipe is from the Taste of Home website.  I love Taste of Home.  I’ve subscribed to their cooking magazines off & on for over 25 years! (Wow, that makes me feel old.) You can get a year’s subscription for only $8 through Amazon right now!

The ingredients are simple:

1 boneless pork loin roast (2 pounds) I used tenderloinRoast Pork in the Ninja
1/4 teaspoon salt  I don’t measure
1/4 teaspoon pepper I don’t measure
1 tablespoon olive oil I don’t measure
3 large Golden Delicious apples, cut into 1-inch wedges I had red delicious, they worked great!
2 large onions, cut into 3/4-inch wedges  I only had one.
5 garlic cloves, peeled  I used minced garlic from Sam’s Club I love the stuff & use it in everything that calls for garlic.
1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed I used dry

To make in the Ninja:

These directions are my directions, and are not from Taste of Home.

  1. Preheat Ninja to high heat for sauteing.
  2. Sprinkle roast/tenderloin with salt and pepper.
  3. Oil Ninja pan.
  4. Place roast/tenderloin in Ninja; brown on all sides.
  5. Switch Ninja to oven at 350 degrees.
  6. Place apples, onions and garlic around tenderloin; sprinkle with rosemary.
  7. Cook until a thermometer inserted in pork reads 145°, about 35-50 minutes (depending on thickness), stirring once.
  8. Turn off Ninja.
  9. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
  10. Serve with apple mixture.

If you don’t have a Ninja, you can easily make this by sauteing the tenderloin (or roast) in a skillet, then switching it to the oven in a roasting pan. 😉
