Orange Cranberry Glazed Pork Tenderloin

Yield: 6 servings

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes


  • One 16-ounce can whole- berry cranberry sauce
  • 2/3 cup freshly squeezed or bottled orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin, trimmed
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Bring the first 9 ingredients (through cloves) to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally for 20 minutes. Remove half of the mixture, and set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Lightly grease a shallow roasting pan.
  3. Brown the pork in hot oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Place the pork in the prepared pan.
  4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest portion registers 145°F., basting occasionally with half of cranberry mixture. Remove from the oven; cover the pork with aluminum foil, and let stand 5 minutes. Slice the pork, and serve topped with the reserved cranberry mixture.
