Spicy Cranberry Pork Tenderloin Recipe


Spicy Cranberry Pork Tenderloin

2 pork tenderloins, about 1 lb. each

2 limes

1 tsp. kosher salt

½ tsp. black pepper

1 tsp. vegetable oil

12 oz. cranberries

2/3 cup packed light brown sugar

1 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped


Preheat oven to 400 F.  Finely grate zest from both limes and juice the limes, too.  Set the lime juice aside.  Mix half the lime zest with salt and pepper in a small bowl, set aside. Brush tenderloins with oil and place in nonstick roasting pan, fat side up.  Roast for 8 minutes, flip and top with lime zest mixture.  Continue roasting until internal temperature of pork measures between 145 F. (medium rare) and 160 F. (medium), about 20-35 minutes.

In medium saucepan, mix 1 cup water with cranberries, brown sugar, jalapeno, lime juice and remaining lime zest.  Bring to a boil over medium heat.  Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until berries burst and juice thicken, about 5 minutes.  Set aside.

Transfer pork to carving board and let rest 3-5 minutes.  Add cranberries sauce to roasting pan and bring to a boil over medium heat, scraping up any browned bits in the pan with a wooden spoon.  Remove from heat, carve pork and serve sauce.
