The fall family favorite goes lighter with barely sweetened apples. And instead of the typical pork chops, we go for lean, inexpensive pork tenderloin. Complete the meal with a side of Broccolini or broccoli.
Combine ½ teaspoon salt, garlic powder, paprika, and pepper; sprinkle evenly over both sides of pork.

3. Add and Stir
Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan (do not wipe pan clean); swirl to coat. Add apples and ½ cup water; cover and cook 6 minutes or until apples are tender.
Uncover. Stir in ¼ teaspoon salt, sugar, and cinnamon; cook 2 minutes or until apple is soft and most of liquid evaporates to become syrupy, stirring occasionally. Serve pork with apple mixture; top with parsley, if desired.
