When I found my mom's old recipe for orange chipotle glazed pork tenderloin, it caught my attention and for some reason I really don't rememebr her making It. Boy, am I ever glad that I listened to my instincts and tried this recipe. I kept eating until I was so stuffed that I felt like throwing up – it is that good!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Place honey, chipotle peppers, chipotle sauce, sriracha and soy sauce together in a food processor and blend until smooth. If you don’t have a food processor, finely mince chipotle peppers and whisk with other ingredients in a large bowl until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Mix together flour, salt and pepper. Pat tenderloin dry with paper towels. Dredge in the flour mixture and dust off excess.
  4. Heat oil in pan and add tenderloin. Brown on all sides until a nice brown crust forms on each side.
  5. Line a rimmed baking pan with foil and place a rack on top of the tray. Place the tenderloin on top of the rack.
  6. Drain off excess oil from pan and add the honey mixture. Cook for 2 minutes until reduced and thickened.
  7. Brush tenderloin all over with the sauce and bake for 10 minutes.
  8. Brush the pork all over again with the sauce and place it back into the oven for 8 minutes.
  9. Brush the pork again and cook for another 5-10 minutes until pork is cooked. You can use a thermometer and it should register 135-140 degrees at the thickest part (the middle). If you don’t have a thermometer, cut a slit in the middle and check to see if it is still red. If it is barely pink, you can take it out.
  10. Brush again with the glaze and let sit for 10 minutes.
  11. You can find canned chipotle chilles in adobo sauce in the hispanic section of most grocery stores.
