Pork Tenderloin

These pork tenderloins go on sale often, ours was about $4!
So this is an inexpensive recipe to make.
Will work with pork chops too.

2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp curry
1/4 tsp chilli powder ( I used Pam's from this blog)
1/4 tsp black pepper

3lb pork tenderloin
1/4 cup water

1 can of fruit (peaches was called for but I used blackberries)
2tbsp vinegar
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp mustard

Combine first 4 items in a large bowl. Coat pork with spice mix and place into a roasting pan (with lid) with water.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until meat is no longer pink.

For sauce:

Stir water and juices in roaster removing bits of pork and drippings. I put the pork in the oven on broil to crisp up the topping a bit while I made the sauce.

Add the last 4 items on med-high heat stirring often until hot and reduced a bit to consistency that makes you happy (thinner or thicker). I added a bit of cornstach to thicken. Makes about 2 cups of sauce and smells amazing. ***I strained my sauce to reduce blackberry seeds.

Slice pork and lay out on a platter. Drizzle with sauce.

Serves 8

"Bon Appetit!"
