Pork Tenderloin with Preserves

This recipe is going to knock your socks off!

Believe me it will! This is yummy, easy to make, quick and scrumptious delicious!

The pork tenderloin is a kind gift of BaodeFood.com who has offered me to taste a few of their products and of course I said YES!

Let’s cook this tenderloin now πŸ™‚

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 1 whole pork tenderloin
  • 1/2 cup preserves
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp white vinegar
  • salt and pepper
  • about 5 tbsp Italian herb mix

Preheat oven to 200 C (420 F). Grab your tender pork tenderloin

and season it with salt

and pepper

then with lots of Italian herb mix

press gently to get the herbs to adhere to the pork

Roast it in the oven for about 15- 20 min. Then take it out and let it rest for a min

In the meantime grab your preserves. I’ve used this delicious stuff my friend Mike brought me back from the States a while ago

When I opened the jar a fabulous smell came out filling my whole kitchen. This preserves is made with Mango, Pure Cane Sugar, Onion, Red Bell Pepper, Apple, Red wine vinegar, Raisins, Brown sugar, Candied Ginger, White vinagar, Canola Oil, Lime Juice, Curry Powder, Salt, Ground Ginger and Cayenne Pepper…

In a small pan combine preserves

water and vinegar

and bring to a simmer

until it reduces

Slice the pork into thick pieces

move it on a plate and spoon the sauce over the slices


This was absolutely one of the best meat dish I have made and ate in a long time!
