Recipe by ratherbeswimmin
READY IN: 45mins




  • Season the pork generously with salt and pepper.
  • Sprinkle with the thyme, patting firmly so it adheres to the meat.
  • In a large frying pan over med-high heat, melt 2 T butter.
  • Add the pork and cook, turning once, until browned on both sides and barely pink in the center, about 8 minutes total.
  • Transfer to a plate.
  • Add the onion to the pan and sauté over medium heat until softened, about 4 minutes.
  • Add the orange juice and bourbon to the pan and cook, stirring to scrape up the browned bits on the pan bottom, about 1 minute.
  • Return the meat and any juices from the plate to the pan, cover, and cook until heated through, about 1 minute.
  • Transfer to a carving board and let rest briefly, about 2 minutes.
  • Arrange the pork and onion mixture on a platter or divide among dinner plates, spoon the sauce over the top, and serve.
