Spicy Stove Top Orange Pork Tenderloin

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by cfletcher

I hate heating up the oven if I don't have to, but love a juicy, tasty pork tenderloin. This stovetop method gave us a succulent tenderloin with a LOT of taste and not a lot of work or preparation. I came up with this recipe in order to avoid using the oven in heating up the kitchen and found a simple, enjoyable meal. Hope you enjoy this as much as we did !

This pork recipe is amazing! So flavorful! I didn't have any orange marmalade on hand, so I substituted with honey, and I reduced the garlic to 1 tsp instead of 1 tbsp because I was worried that would be too much. It turned out carmelized on the outside and super tasty. Served with potato and salad, but would be great on a bed of rice. Will definitely do again!
