Spicy Stove Top Orange Pork Tenderloin

"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 !"

  • Prepare the pork tenderloin by removing the white membrane.
  • Heat the frying pan to medium and add the olive oil.

  1. 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!
  2. This recipe was DELICIOUS! It was very easy and full of flavor. This recipe I will definitely make again!


Love to try new recipes......this website is the best ! I have tried several others but always end up coming back here ! It's now one of my favourites....and the first place I go for any meal suggestions ! I tend to use recipes as guidelines rather than the exact way of doing cooking. Cooking should be fun and experimental...at least I think so...to give you something a bit different every time you make a recipe. I know that many of my recipes never turn out the same way twice....if they do then I did something wrong!
