DIRECTIONS

  • Cook pork (sprinkled with pepper - optional,) I cut the tenderloin into 1" chops, and used my flavour wave to cook them at 400 degrees for approximately 15 minutes, but you can cook them using whatever method you would like.
  • Mean while I added fruit to a pan (doesn't matter what kind). These were just what I happened to have.
  • Stir in 1/2 of the juice saving the rest to mix with cornstarch.
  • Heat, then add pepper flakes, and cinnamon. I added more than I have suggested but as they say you can always add but can not take away.
  • Mix remaining juice with cornstarch until bubbling.Add more sauce with the cornstarch if you prefer it to have extra juice.
  • By this time the pork should be done.
  • Note: adjust types or amounts of fruit to your liking. I could not find a recipe so just put it together.
  • Spoon sauce over pork, and serve with your favourite side dishes.
  • Note: you end up with extra fruit in the can' but you can of course double the recipe or store the extra in containers).
  • I served it with baked potato, and corn that I cut off the cob.
