Updated Aug 17, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups apple juice
  • 3/4 cup uncooked quick-cooking barley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh or 2 teaspoons dried rosemary leaves, crushed
  • 3/4-pound pork tenderloin
  • 2 teaspoons canola or soybean oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup apple jelly
  • 1 large unpeeled red cooking apple, sliced (1 1/2 cups)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat apple juice to boiling in 2-quart saucepan. Stir in barley and 1 tablespoon of the rosemary; reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 10 to 12 minutes until liquid is absorbed and barley is tender.
  • 2
    While barley is cooking, cut pork into 1/4-inch slices.
  • 3
    Heat oil in 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook pork, onion, garlic and remaining 1 tablespoon rosemary in hot oil about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until pork is no longer pink in center. Stir in apple jelly and apple slices; cook until hot. Serve over barley.
