    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (1 lb) pork tenderloin, trimmed
    • 1 garlic clove, sliced into 6 thin pieces
    • 1/2 cup apricot preserves (preferably with whole fruit)
    • 1/2 medium lemon, juice of
    • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    • 1/8 teaspoon cumin
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil


    1. 1
      Heat the toaster oven (or conventional oven) to 400°.
    2. 2
      Place the pork tenderloin in a shallow ovenproof dish.
    3. 3
      Cut 6 (1-inch) slits evenly spaced across the top, insert the garlic pieces, and season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
    4. 4
      Let sit at room temperature for 20 minutes while the oven is heating.
    5. 5
      In a small bowl, mix together the apricot preserves, lemon juice, red pepper flakes, and cumin. (If the preserves are still thick, add more lemon juice; don’t add too much, though, because the mixture should remain dense, not be runny.)
    6. 6
      Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
    7. 7
      Set aside.
    8. 8
      Coat the tenderloin with olive oil and roast for 20 minutes.
    9. 9
      Remove from the oven and spread evenly with the apricot mixture.
    10. 10
      Return the pork to the oven and roast for another 5 to 10 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 160°F.
    11. 11
      Remove from the oven and let rest 5 to 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

      What a tasty dish dojemi. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe, which I will be making often. It was awesome. The pork was perfectly cooked, tender and juicy, while the sauce was delicious; fruity, spicy and sweet. I served the tenderloin slices on top of romaine lettuce, drizzled with balsamic glaze and garnished with sliced green onions. It was a wonderful pairing of flavors, resulting in a memorable meal, best of all it was quick to make.
