- Pat the pork tenderloin dry and generously season with salt and pepper on all sides.
- Heat 2 tablespoons of canola oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, until the oil is shimmering and just starting to smoke.
- Place pork in the hot skillet and sear until well browned, about 1½-2 minutes. Flip and repeat searing on all sides.
- Remove the pork from the skillet and set aside.
- Preheat the oven to 375˚F (190˚C).
- Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in the skillet.
- Add the onion to hot skillet and toss to coat in the oil. Add the garlic and apples and cook until the apples and onion begin to soften.
- Pour the cider over apples and onion and bring to a simmer.
- Return the pork to the skillet, on top of the apple and onion mixture. Spoon the cooking liquid over the pork and transfer the entire skillet to the oven.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the internal temperature of the pork reaches 145˚F (62˚C.)
- Remove the skillet from the oven and let the pork rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Serve the sliced pork over a bed of the apples and onions.
