Orange and Cumin Pork Tenderloin


I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made this pork tenderloin for dinner—-it’s easy to prepare and incredibly delicious!  It goes great with some baked asparagus (as seen in the picture) or any green veggies.  Hope you guys enjoy making it!

YIELD: 2-4 servings

TIME: 1 hr 30 min

3 lbs boneless pork loin or pork tenderloin
2 Tbsp olive oil
1-1/2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp salt
1-1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
2 Tbsp orange marmalade
2 Tbsp chopped cilantro (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 F and combine cumin, salt, and pepper together in a bowl.  Rub pork with oil on both sides and coat with seasonings.  In a large skillet, cook pork over high until browned on all sides for 8 minutes.  Transfer pork to a baking dish; in a small bowl whisk orange juice, vinegar, and marmalade.  Drizzle over pork, and roast pork in the oven for 45-50 minutes, until cooked through (170 F on a meat thermometer).  Sprinkle pork with cilantro, let rest 10 minutes before slicing, and serve with pan juices.

Hope y’all enjoy!

xoxo, Sara
