Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, combine the parsley, thyme, rosemary, onion salt, garlic powder, oregano, marjoram, kosher salt and pepper. Massage the seasoning mixture evenly over the pork tenderloin.
  2. Heat olive oil in an oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the pork on all sides until deep brown.
  3. Transfer the skillet to the oven. Roast for 30 to 40 minutes, or until a thermometer reads 140 degrees. Turn over once halfway through roasting. Remove the pork from the skillet and wrap in tin foil. Allow the pork to rest for 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, make the sauce. Using the same skillet, place it over medium-high heat on the stove top. Stir the butter into the pan drippings, until melted. Deglaze with the chicken broth, scraping up the brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Stir in the jelly and balsamic vinegar. Add the orange zest, parsley, thyme, rosemary and a pinch of kosher salt. Bring the sauce to a boil and continue to cook and stir occasionally for 5 minutes.
  5. Slice the pork tenderloin. Pour the sauce over all.
  6. Enjoy!
