Apricot Chipotle-Glazed Pork Tenderloin

I love the combination of sweet and spicy ingredients. The sweet fruity taste of apricot preserves goes perfectly with spicy adobo sauce. I like to serve this pork with some simple corn on the cob {with lots of butter and garlic!} and a salad on the side.

Enjoy this easy dinner — it’s sure to become a family favorite!

Ingredients

  • 1 1lb pork tenderloin
  • ¾ cup apricot preserves
  • 2 tbsp adobo sauce {from a can of chilies in adobo sauce}
  • pinch of salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Turn your broiler on high. Place pork in a roasting pan and season with a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
  2. Combine the apricot and adobo sauce in a small saucepot over medium heat. Stir until the apricot preserves melt into the adobo sauce and you have a smooth glaze. Remove from heat.
  3. Place the pork in the oven and broil for 10 minutes. Remove and brush glaze over meat. Flip meat in the pan and return to the oven to broil for another 10 minutes, or until done. The pork should have an internal temperature of 150 degrees when done. Immediately brush with more glaze.
  4. Let pork rest for about five minutes before slicing. Serve drizzled with additional glaze.
