Tropical Glazed Pork Tenderloin ~ Favorite Ingredients Friday

Last week I offered you our proposed Easter Menu for my favorite ingredients Friday entry hosted by Overwhelmed with Joy, but this week I offer you what we actually had after much discussion about it just being the two of us and not needing all that food.

2-3 pound pork tenderloin
1 cup apricot pineapple preserves
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup pineapple juice

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Whisk together brown sugar and pineapple juice.
  • Blend in preserves.
  • generously salt and pepper the pork loin.
  • Spread a small layer of the glaze on the bottom of the roasting pan.
  • Lay the pork loin on top and spread the remaining glaze on top and along the sides.
  • Baste as necessary
  • Bake 45-60 minutes or until meat thermometer reads 170 degrees.
