    1 lb pork tenderloin, trimmed of all visible fat
    2 tsp five-spice powder
    1/4 tsp salt
    4 tsp Smart Balance Light
    3 large granny smith apples, cored and cut into 1/2" wedges
    1/2 cup dried cranberries
    1/2 cup water


Cut the tenderloin in half to create two equal pieces. Rub the spice powder and a scant 1/4 tsp of salt over all sides of each piece.

In a small skillet, melt 2 tsp of spread over medium high heat. Add the meat, and cook, turning as needed, until browned on all sides; about 4 minutes.

Cover and continute to cook, turning occasionally for 12 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted in the center reaches 145 decrees and the juices run clear. Remove and let stand for 5 minutes. Cut each piece into 6 medallions.

In the skillet, combine the apples, cranberries, remaining 2 tsp of spread, water and a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring or shaking the pan occasionally, until the liquid has almost evaporated and the apples soften. Serve with the medallions.

Makes 5 servings.
