- 2 (1 1/4 lb) pork tenderloin
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 large shallot, minced
- 1⁄2 cup peach preserves
- 1⁄3 cup Bourbon
- 2 tablespoons country-style dijon mustard
- 1⁄4 teaspoon dry crushed red pepper
- 1⁄2 cup chicken broth
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Sprinkle tenderloins with salt and black pepper. Cook in hot oil in a large ovenproof skillet over high heat 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until lightly browned.
- Melt butter in a small skillet over medium-high heat; add shallot, and saute 2 to 3 minutes until tender. Remove from heat and stir in peach preserves, bourbon, mustard, and red pepper. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, 1 minute or until preserves are melted. Pour over tenderloins.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted in thickest portion registers 150 degrees. Transfer to a cutting board, reserving drippings in skillet. Cover loosely with aluminum foil and let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
- Meanwhile, stir broth into reserved drippings and cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes or until reduced by half. Serve with sliced tenderloins.
