Easy Elegant Meal

"This recipe was pretty good! I combined it with loaded potatoes & a cobb salad. cooked my tenderloins a little longer than suggested to remove some of the pink. And im not sure about the others but if you bring the sauce to a boil for 10 minutes and reduce heat for the remaining time it will thicken. Pretty good quick meal : )"

Are you making this? 
1 tablespoon Butter
1 8-oz pork tenderloin; (up to 10 oz)
1/2 c onion; chopped
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary; chopped
1/2 c low-salt chicken broth
1/3 c whole berry cranberry sauce; canned
1 tablespoon Balsamic vinegar

Original recipe makes 3



Preheat oven to 450. Melt ½ T butter in heavy large ovenproof skillet over medium high heat. Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper. Sear pork on all sides, about 2 minutes. Place skillet with pork in oven. Roast pork until thermometer registers 155, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt remaining 1 T butter in heavy medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and rosemary; sauté until onion softens, about 3 minutes. Add broth, cranberry sauce and vinegar and whisk until cranberry sauce melts about 2 minutes.

Transfer pork to work surface. Scrape any juices from large skillet into cranberry mixture. Boil until sauce has reduced enough to coat spoon thickly, about 6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Slice pork and serve with sauce.

So easy yet tastes great and so tender, yes needs more time for the pork, but so fast for such a great roast.

This Recipe was very good! The sauce was amazing. If you cook it a little longer it will thicken up! Love it! My boyfriend really enjoyed it!

Meh just ok. Took longer than 10 mins. Wasn't a fan of the sauce really but my fiancé linked it

I agree with another reviewer, it took about 20 min to get to 155 internal temp. I really like the combination of sweet and sour. Served with Jasmine rice. We will definitely have this dish again.

Excellent! I do find I need to cook it a few minutes longer in the oven, but it always comes out PERFECT!

Absolutely fantastic! My 4 yr and 18 month loved it too. Served it with roasted rosemary sweet potatoes. It made A LOT of sauce for our pork chops (had that on hand not a tenderloin). I have put it in the freezer for the next time. Thank you very much for sharing!!!!M
