Pork Tenderloin Cutlets with Chorizo and Apple

I just make this tonight, and it turned out great! I was surprised, because I had purchased these cutlets to grill, but time was running out on them and it's been too cold to grill so I went with plan B.

Season 2 inch thick pork tenderloin cutlets with olive oil, salt and pepper. Dice one chorizo sausage and 1/2 apple into 1/4 inch pieces. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in large pan over high heat. Add chorizo to pan and cook until crispy - remove from pan and set to the side. Add pork cutlets to pan and sear on both sides, about 4 minutes each, until brown. After the second side is seared, add 1/2 cup chicken stock to pan along with cooked chorizo and apple. Place pan in preheated oven to finish cooking the pork - about 20 minutes or until internal temp reaches 165 degrees.

Allow pork to sit before serving. Ladle sauce with apples and sausage on top of each cutlet to serve.

Ok, so I had the chance to make this last night, and it was delish! The taste of the pork with the applies was amazing, even my husband ate the apples (he's not a fan of fruits). Thanks!
