This is a simple yet delicious way to prepare Pork Tenderloin. The orange glaze adds a nice touch (in both taste and appearance). The tenderloin pairs well with steamed vegetables (especially broccoli or a zucchini/yellow squash blend). Add a little white rice on the side, and you have a complete meal. If you have any extra pan sauce left, you can pour it over the rice to add a nice citrus boost to plain white rice.

How To Make orange-glazed pork tenderloin

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray an 11x17-inch baking dish; set aside.
  • 2
    Score the tenderloins with shallow diagonal slits, about 1/2 inch deep and about 1 inch apart, across the tops of both tenderloins. Place tenderloins, side by side, in the baking dish.
  • 3
    In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, garlic, honey, mustard, olive oil, orange juice, orange zest, rosemary and white pepper. Pour the marinade over both both tenderloins.
  • 4
    Bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes, thoroughly basting the pork every 10 minutes with the pan sauce.
  • 5
    Baste the pork one last time, then transfer both tenderloins to a cutting board, and let stand 10 minutes before slicing into 3/4- to 1-inch thick medallions.
  • 6
    Drizzle some of the pan sauce over the sliced medallions. TIP - If you have any extra pan sauce left, it's great for moistening and flavoring plain white rice, too.
