I think I enjoy the cooking more than eating, there is nothing better than to watch the smile grow after someone’s first bite. Note from Steve: I am a flow of thought writer and apologize up front if I lose you. My family is used to it.
Separate tenderloins, pat dry with paper towels and season with salt, freshly cracked black pepper on all sides and ends.
Melt butter and add the olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat and sear the tenderloin on all sides and ends.
Pour the white wine (Pinot Grigio used), thyme and chicken stock into the skillet and bake at 400° for 10 minutes.
In a small bowl whisk the apricot preserves and Dijon mustard together. Brush over the top, sides and ends of the tenderloins and continue baking another 10-15 minutes or until the tenderloins are done as you like:145° medium rare, 150° medium, 155-160° well done/no pink
Remove from the oven, allow the pork to rest for 5 minutes, then slice and serve.
Lyn and I decided this will be added to our rotation. Want to thank Martha for sharing this with us.
Extremely simple to prepare and cook, tender and delicious.
1 pork tenderloin (1 to 1 1/2 pounds)
1 to 2 tablespoons spices or seasonings (See Recipe Note)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
Heat the oven and pan. 10 to 20 minutes before you plan to cook, place a large cast-iron or oven safe skillet on the middle rack in the oven and heat the oven to 450°F. The skillet will heat along with the oven.
Season the pork. Pat the pork dry with paper towels and trim off any large pieces of surface fat. Mix any spices being used with the salt and pepper in a small bowl. Rub the spice mix onto the pork on all sides.
Swirl the pan with oil. Using oven mitts, carefully remove the hot pan from the oven. Add the oil and swirl to coat the bottom of the pan.
Roast the pork for 10 minutes. Place the pork in the pan. (It’s fine if your pork tenderloin is a little long for the pan; just bend it to fit as we did here.) Return the pan to the oven and roast for 10 minutes.
Flip the pork, reduce the heat, and roast another 10 to 15 minutes. Flip the pork. Reduce the oven temperature to 400°F and continue roasting 10 to 15 minutes more. The pork is done when its internal temperature registers 140°F to 145°F in the thickest part, 20 to 25 minutes total.
Rest for 10 minutes before serving. Transfer the pork to a clean cutting board, tent loosely with aluminum foil, and let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing crosswise. For extra-thin slices for sandwiches, cool the pork completely, then refrigerate before cutting.
Seasoning the pork: You can keep this pork simple and season with just salt and pepper, or you can rub it with any favorite spices or salt-free blend of spices.
Usually we make a dry rub pork loin which although we make it frequently I have not posted yet but this last shipment from Butcher Box had some in it I decided to tur something different. If you want to check it out please use my codes you’ll find http://fbuy.me/oqMxZ this link get $30 off this is from my on my post http://fbuy.me/oqMpH and we both get stuff for free!
Anyway, this was quick, easy, delicious and a good choice. You could do veal and chicken the same way.
1 1/4 pound Pork Tenderloin
½ cup all-purpose flour or I used cornstarch to make gluten free
3 Tablespoons Olive corn oil
3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
2 cloves garlic thinly sliced
¼ cup dry vermouth or white wine or rice cooking wine
3 Tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 Tablespoons capers drained
2 Tablespoons minced flat leaf parsley
Salt and freshly ground pepper
If you like a thicker sauce add a little cornstarch dissolved in water at end and cook to thickened.
Want to get fancy garnish with fresh Lemon slices.
Slice pork into 2-inch thick slices. Place each slice between two pieces of plastic wrap and use the flat side of a meat tenderizer to flatten to ¼-inch thickness. (Season with salt and pepper)
Place the flour in a shallow bowl and dredge the pork in it. Shake off the excess.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 Tbsp. of the olive oil.
Place 4 pieces of pork in the pan and cook, turning once, until browned on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter and keep warm under a tent of foil. Warm the remaining 1 Tbs. oil in the pan and repeat to brown the remaining pork. Place that pork under your foil tent as well.
Reduce the heat to medium and melt 1 Tbsp. of the butter in the pan. Add the garlic and cook until golden brown, about 30 seconds. Add the vermouth, lemon juice and broth, increase the heat to medium-high and cook until the liquid is slightly reduced, about 5 minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the remaining 2 Tbsp. butter, the capers and parsley. Season with salt and pepper.
Drizzle the sauce over pork and serve immediately. I like to put in pan and toss to coat.
This was another dish from the cooking class I had a small port tenderloin leftover that I was going to grind for pork burgers but decided this would make a great meal for two Fantastic, flavorful dishes that just happen to be gluten free. I also have some chicken thighs and I’m a sucker for 5 spice and chicken so those were thrown in the marinade also. Beware I pan seared the chicken first but all the ingredients took to shall we say really caramelized – which was good in a way, I ripped off the skin after and did not eat – but I love the crispy crunchy chicken skin I mourned for a tiny time.

Orange Almond Cake with Fresh Oranges in Toffee Syrup
Marinated Pork Tenderloin in Maple Tamari Sauce Served with Steamed Rice – Stonewall Kitchen
Ingredients – this is the complete recipe – I grilled the pork and roasted veggies
2 pork tenderloins, about 2 pounds
1 Tbsp. olive oil
½ cup white wine
1 cup chicken stock
1 tsp corn starch, optional for thicken
3 Tbsp. orange juice (concentrated if you have)
2 Tbsp. pure maple sugar
1 Tbsp. soy sauce ( gluten free)
1 Tbsp. Olive oil
1 tsp crushed ginger
1 tsp. crushed garlic
½ tsp. Chines five-spice powder
Mix together all the marinade ingredients in a glass bowl or my favorite plastic bag. Add the pork and turn to cover evenly. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Preheat the oven to 350
Drain the tenderloins, discard the marinade. Heat oil in fry pan and sear on all sides. Transfer pork to an oven proof dish and roast until cook to your liking about 15 minutes. Note: I skipped this part and finished on the BBQ.
Remove the pork tent loosely and let stand for at least 10 minutes before serving.
If you did in oven, deglaze pan with white wine add stock and simmer gently until reduces, If you prefer, thicken the sauce with the cornstarch, Adjust seasoning with a little orange juice, soy sauce or maple syrup.
Unwrap the pork tenderloins add juices to sauce than carve into slices, Server with sweet potatoes and pumpkin mash and stir fried Asian veggie.
I can’t wait until fall so I can do this in the oven or better yet roast in pan right on the BBQ now that’s a good idea……
Did you realize that sweet potatoes and Yams are never in season at the same time?
I love the thought of crock pot cooking especially in the winter months. Walking into a house filled with the smells of whatever concoction you have simmering on the counter. I guess I still have to prefect a few things in my quest for lower fat content some of these dishes although tasty just seem a little to dry for me. I have read that it could be the crock pot just being to high even when on low or using a leaner cut of meat will tend to give these results whatever it is I will find out or just use my slow cooker for soups, stews and such. Perhaps this recipe using one tenderloin and a small but would yield a moister result. Anyway I love the Robyn cooks and will continue to taste her creations. This one simple and easy.
2-3 pound boneless pork tenderloin
1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
½ cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
cloves garlic, chopped
Place pork tenderloin into the insert of your slow cooker. In a 2-cup measuring cup, mix together all remaining ingredients. Pour over pork and set the timer for your slow cooker. (4 hours on High or 6-8 hours on Low)
Once pork tenderloin has cooked, remove from slow cooker with tongs into a serving dish.
Break apart lightly with two forks and then ladle about ¼ – ½ cup of gravy over pork tenderloin.
Store remaining gravy in an airtight container in the refrigerator for another use.
