Apple Butter Pork Bites

Apple Butter Pork Bites


2 Pork Tenderloin (about 2 lb/0.9 Kg)
salt & pepper
1 medium onion (about 1/2 lb/0.2 kg), chopped fine
5 cloves garlic, minced
1-190ml Apple Butter Buzz
11/2 tsp. (2 g) poultry seasoning
Havarti cheese
2 rolls (450 g) frozen butter puff pastry
1 egg, lightly beaten with 1 tsp (5 g) water


Set oven to 400°F (200°C)

Remove frozen puff pastry from freezer.

Cut the pork tenderloins in half lengthwise. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and brown in butter on the stove. Remove and let cool.

In the same pan juices add more butter and caramelize the onions and garlic. Once cooked move them to a small mixing bowl. Add the Apple Butter Buzz and spices and blend.

On a floured surface spread out one puff pastry sheet, making sure its length matches that of the tenderloin, rolling if necessary then cut in half lengthwise. Divide apple/onion mixture in quarters and spread 1/4 each on the 2 pastry layers (saving the other half for the remaining pork and pastry). Slice the havarti cheese thinly and layer slices over the apple/onion mixture. Finally lay the tenderloin lengthwise on one long edge and wrap it up like a jelly roll. Seal the seam with the egg/water mixture then brush the rest over the pastry. Repeat with the remaining tenderloins then gently slice them into sections about 1 in. (2.5 cm) thick. Cover two large baking sheets with parchment paper then lay the sections on them. Either bake at 400°F (200°C) for about 15 min. or keep in the fridge for a couple of hours and bake just before serving.

To make this a stunning Entreé simply keep the tenderloins intact and bake for 25 to 30 min at 400°F (200°C).
