How to Make Pork Tenderloin with Spicy Pineapple-Mango Sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Remove silverskin and season with freshly ground black pepper. In an oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat, add oil and when hot place pork tenderloin. Cook one side until brown. Flip meat over, transfer into the preheated oven and cook for 18 to 20 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 140ºF to 145ºF. Remove from heat and transfer pork onto a cutting board; set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, chop mango first to determine the equal amount needed for pineapple. In a juicer, add pineapple and mango; process and set aside (should have around ¾ cup). After removing pork tenderloin from the pan, remove fat with paper towel using tongs.
  3. Return skillet on medium heat and add butter; scrap the bottom of the pan to dislodge brown bits. When hot, add habanero and red peppers; sauté until soft, about 2 minutes. Add garlic and ginger; sauté for 1 minute. Add juice mixture and season with honey and salt; whisk until blended. Add cream, whisk and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until liquid reduces in half, about 12 to 15 minutes. Just 5 minutes before the end, add the finely chopped mango and pineapple; stir and cook until warm.
  4. Slice pork and place in warm serving plates. Spoon sauce over pork and sprinkle fresh cilantro on top. Serve with potatoes and steamed veggies
