Recipes for a Sunday night - this is how to put the whole meal together. It takes about an hour in total. (Recipes are for 2, multiply and divide as needed. You can also add a nice kale salad, just rub the salt into the leaves to soften them.)
1. Bring medium pot of water to boil while slicing two Russet potatoes thinly (1/4 inch thick). Add them and salt the water, cover, bring it to a boil. Boil two minutes. Drain potatoes, let cool.
2. Put oven to 450 degrees. Halve and peel a large onion; saute for 5 min in pan over medium. Add a clove or two of minced garlic and stir in at the end. Put in bowl. Add 4 tbsp butter to pan and melt.
3. Layer potatoes and onions in pan, going to edges of pan and pressing down firmly. Bake for 15 minutes in oven.
4. Rub pork tenderloin (about a pound) with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, fennel pollen (if available). Place on parchment paper on baking sheet on the other oven rack and roast for 25 minutes. Pork should be 145 degrees F internal temperature. Let sit for five minutes, then slice 1/4 inch thick medallions.
5. Meanwhile, chop 4 apples - I like every variety for this, MacIntosh and Macoun break down especially nicely - and toss in a saucpan with 1/2 cup water with a cinnamon stick. Cover and simmer 20 minutes. Remove cinnamon stick and squeeze lemon over at the end.
6. To plate, remove potatoes from pan and arrange on half of each plate and then a leftover platter. In empty pan with rest of oil, add a splash of sherry vinegar, then a few tablespoons of heavy cream, let bubble for 2 minutes, then add 1 tbsp Dijon mustard, then a handful of chopped sorrel if you have it.
7. Slice tenderloin and array on other side of plate, spoon sauce over. Serve applesauce separately in bowls. Season.
