Family Favorite Pork Tenderloin Recipe
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 (1 pound) pork tenderloins
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 cup chopped onion
1 garlic clove, minced
2 cups unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup apple juice

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
In a shallow bowl combine the flour, salt if desired and the pepper.
Cut each pork tenderloin into six pieces and flatten to about 1-in. thickness.
Melt the butter in a large skillet. Dip the pork tenderloin into the flour mixture. Shake off any excess flour and add the tenderloin to the skillet and brown on both sides.
After browning place the tenderloin in an ungreased 11-in. x 7-in. x 2-in. baking pan.
In the same skillet you browned the tenderloin in saute the onion and garlic until tender. Add the remaining ingredients and bring the mixture to a boil.
Pour the mixture over the pork tenderloin. Cover the baking pan and bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour or until the juices run clear and a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees F.
