  • STEP 1

    Prepare the Braised Apples: Heat olive oil in oven-proof fry pan over medium heat. Add onions and saute, then add apples and increase heat to medium-high. Pour in vinegar, juice and syrup and bring to a boil.

  • STEP 2

    Move from stove to oven and bake at 350°F until liquid reduces to lightly thickened syrup.

  • STEP 3

    Remove from oven, extract apple pieces to cool and set syrup aside. Slice cooled apples into match-stick sized batons. Add back to syrup and set aside.

  • STEP 4

    Prepare the Apple Sabayon: Whisk together ingredients in a double boiler at a very light boil. Continue to whisk as mixture heats and becomes thick and frothy. If the egg starts to scramble and sticks, keep whisking and remove from heat.

  • STEP 5

    Season tenderloin with salt, pepper and rosemary. Sear over medium-high heat in oven-proof pan.

  • STEP 6

    Move to 350°F oven and roast until done (blood cooked out but still moist).

  • STEP 7

    Slice the pork into 1/4-inch medallions and create an offset stack on plate.

  • STEP 8

    Meanwhile, return the braised apples to medium heat to re-warm, then spoon over pork.

  • STEP 9

    Whisk up the Sabayon so it is frothy and spoon over apples and pork.

  • STEP 10

    Garnish with truffle slices and, for an extra blast of truffle, drizzle with truffle oil.
