Roast Pork Tenderloin Sliders with Cranberry Sauce and Pickled Onions

  • Active Time 10m



  • 1 pound pork tenderloin
  • 1/2 red onion, halved and very thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more for seasoning
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 8 dinner rolls, white, whole wheat or a combination, split horizontally
  • 3/4 cup cranberry sauce, jellied or whole berry


In a small bowl, combine the onion, red wine vinegar and 1/4 teaspoon salt, stirring to dissolve the salt. Let stand at room temperature for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Season the tenderloin on all sides with salt and pepper. Place the tenderloin in a shallow pan and roast for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F. Remove pork from the oven and let rest 3 minutes. Cut pork into thin slices. Drain the onion mixture.

Arrange the bottom halves of rolls on a work surface. Spread with cranberry sauce, and then top with pork and pickled onions, dividing all evenly. Add the top halves of rolls and serve.
