This recipe comes from a local cookbook called Recipes and Memories of Patrick W. Cox. It's different and tasty. I made a slight change in the ingredients but not much.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs pork tenderloin
- fresh ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground red pepper
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1⁄2 cup pineapple preserves
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Trim fat from tenderloin.
- Sprinkle with fresh ground black pepper to taste.
- Line a baking dish with parchment paper or aluminim foil.
- Mix the soy sauce, peanut butter, red pepper and minced garlic together.
- Spread mixture over pork loin.
- Bake uncovered for 30 minutes.
- Remove from oven.
- Carefully spread pineapple preserves on top of pork loin.
- Bake another 10 mintes or until meat reaches 150 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
This was delicious! My husband was very skeptical but admitted after trying it that it was actually "really good"
next time i will double the recipe for the sauce and pineapples but yes, there will definitely be a next time!
The pictures looked so good, the other reviews were good, I was excited to try this recipe. Unfortunately, non of the eaters enjoyed it. Fortunately, the peanut butter mixture could be scraped off and the meal was saved; the flavor hadn't passed on through the meat. I won't be making this again.
My husband says everything is better with peanut butter or I probably wouldn't have tried this. So glad I did! Yum! Goes in my KEEPER cookbook.
