1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.  Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium high on the stove.  Combine the oregano, thyme, cumin, kosher salt, and black pepper.  Sprinkle the spice mixture over all sides of the pork and pat to rub it in.

2. Place the rubbed pork in the hot skillet and sear on all sides.  Once you’ve taken a minute to sear all the sides about 1 minute, each side, wrap seared pork in aluminum foil topped with apple slices and onion slices  drizzle with olive oil and cook for 45 minutes check for an internal temperature of 145°F.  Take the pork tenderloin from the oven and let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing.  To build the sandwiches, layer slices of pork on the bottom bun of each slider.  Top with onions, and a couple of apple slices.
