Orange-Chipotle Glazed Pork Tenderloin

"When I found my mom's old recipe for orange chipotle glazed pork tenderloin, it caught my attention and for some reason I really don't rememebr her making It. Boy, am I ever glad that I listened to my instincts and tried this recipe. I kept eating until I was so stuffed that I felt like throwing up – it is that good!"

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Place honey, chipotle peppers, chipotle sauce, sriracha and soy sauce together in a food processor and blend until smooth. If you don’t have a food processor, finely mince chipotle peppers and whisk with other ingredients in a large bowl until smooth. Set aside.
  • Mix together flour, salt and pepper. Pat tenderloin dry with paper towels. Dredge in the flour mixture and dust off excess.
  • Heat oil in pan and add tenderloin. Brown on all sides until a nice brown crust forms on each side.
  • Line a rimmed baking pan with foil and place a rack on top of the tray. Place the tenderloin on top of the rack.
  • Drain off excess oil from pan and add the honey mixture. Cook for 2 minutes until reduced and thickened.
  • Brush tenderloin all over with the sauce and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Brush the pork all over again with the sauce and place it back into the oven for 8 minutes.
  • Brush the pork again and cook for another 5-10 minutes until pork is cooked. You can use a thermometer and it should register 135-140 degrees at the thickest part (the middle). If you don’t have a thermometer, cut a slit in the middle and check to see if it is still red. If it is barely pink, you can take it out.
  • Brush again with the glaze and let sit for 10 minutes.
  • You can find canned chipotle chilles in adobo sauce in the hispanic section of most grocery stores.

I work in health care and love to cook. My mother is from France. I take after her, however with working long hours I like fast simple recipes Monday-Friday. On the weekend Icook those extra special dinners.
