This is an adaption of recipe that was printed in TOH Light and Tasty, February/March. Serve this on top of rice to absorb the delicious orange sauce. Hope you enjoy.
- 1 -1 1⁄2 lb pork tenderloin

- Remove meat from oven and cover with foil, allow to stand while making sauce.
- In a small skillet, add the juice, broth, ketchup, honey and orange zest; bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half.
- Slice the pork in 1/4 inch slices, add to sauce with the rosemary and simmer for 4 to 5 minutes or until meat is nicely glazed.
- If desired, mix the 1/4 teaspoon arrowroot starch in a small amount of water and add to sauce to thicken slightly.
My bf just made this for our dinner tonight (leaving out the chicken broth as I'm allergic, and rosemary because we don't like it). It was amazing. He used a peppered tenderloin, which gave it some spice, and we ate over broccoli. He'd probably look for a plain tenderloin next time, but there was not any at our store today. VERY, VERY TASTY! We also did not use arrowroot, although it probably would have thickened the sauce nicely. We were fine with the more liquid sauce. In place of the chicken broth he just used more OJ. Great low-fat, all-natural/organic dinner.
Except for using fresh rosemary and thickening with corn starch I followed the recipe. I did, however, double the sauce and glad I did so. This was lovely and sure to be repeated. Made for RS#42
Step #3 says to reduce to 1 cup. It started with less then 1 cup so I just reduced to 1/2 of what I started with. I used pork loin and chicken breast that I sliced and coated with a mixture of soy sauce, sesame oil and cornstarch. placed in the oven for 10-15 minutes. Then added to the sauce. This would be nice if it was thickened so the sauce coated the pork. Thanks for this low fat dish.
