Pork With Brie and Pecan Molasses

4 oz watercress (or arugula) leaves

1 pork tenderloin (about 1 lb)

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 tablespoon canola oil

1 cup chopped pecans

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1/4 cup molasses

1/2 cup water

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

2. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover; cook 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally, or until pork is 145°F. Remove pan from heat. Arrange cheese on pork and cover; let stand 5 minutes to melt.

3. Combine in small saucepan: shallots, pecans, brown sugar, water, and molasses; bring to a boil on medium-high.

4. Reduce heat to low; cook 5-7 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove pan from heat; whisk in butter. Place watercress on serving platter; slice pork and place on watercress. Top with sauce and serve.

2 medium crisp, sweet apples
15 caramel squares, halved
1 (24-oz) jar chunky applesauce
