Ingredients

  • in Two pork tenderloins Two typically come one package

Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 3/4 cup cherry preserves
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup La Morena chipotle chile in adobo minced
  • 1/2 tsp molasses
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground peppercorns

Instructions

  • Let tenderloin sit out at room temperature while creating the sauce.
  • Saute the onions in butter in a small saucepan until translucent.
  • Add all remaining ingredients to saucepan and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Transfer sauce to blender and puree until smooth.
  • Pour sauce into two separate bowls to prevent cross contamination.
  • Using one bowl with a smaller amount of sauce, brush liberally onto the raw meat.
  • Add more sauce to the this bowl as needed, but throw away any sauce that is not used since the brush came in contact with raw meat.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Place tenderloins on a wire rack sitting on top of a baking sheet and roast for 30 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 145. Cook time will vary depending on thickness of the tenderloin.
  • Let meat rest for 5-10 minutes then slice on the bias and serve with remaining sauce.

Notes

Note: If you do not have a baking sheet with a wire rack, you can set the pork directly onto the rack however it will cook faster and less evenly. You will still get cook results.
