Preparation steps

1.

Rinse pork and pat dry.

2.

Crush juniper in a mortar. Season half with some pepper and salt and rub over the meat. Sear in hot oil in a pan until browned on all sides. Remove from pan and transfer to a broiler pan with a rack. Bake in preheated oven at 100°C (approximately 210°F) for 45-50 minutes. 

3.

Peel apple, cut in half, remove seeds and cut into wedges. Press garlic through a press.

4.

Deglaze pan drippings with apple juice and broth. Add bay leaf and bring to a boil in the pan. Cook until reduced to about half. Stir in cream, remaining juniper, apple slices, thyme and garlic. Simmer about 5 minutes. Then season with mustard, honey, salt and pepper. Remove bay leaf.

5.

Remove pork tenderloin from oven and let it rest for a few minutes. Then cut into slices and serve with the juniper-apple cream sauce.

6.

If desired, serve with mashed potatoes.
