Oven Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Balsamic Fig Sauce

Difficulty: 3/5
Time: 35 minutes

Recipe by Lemons for Lulu.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 lbs pork tenderloin
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons dried rosemary
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

Sauce

  • 3/4 cup fig jam
  • 3 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

PREPARATION

Preheat oven to 450. Sprinkle pork with rosemary, garlic, salt and pepper. Heat a large, oven-safe skillet (I used a cast iron) with olive oil over medium heat. Add pork.

Cook pork for 10 minutes, turning halfway to brown each side. Place the skillet in the oven and bake pork in the preheated oven for 30 – 50 minutes or until a meat thermometer registers 145 degrees. Remove pork.

Let pork stand for a few minutes before cutting. Meanwhile, add jam to the same skillet. Add vinegar and salt, stir frequently and cook on low heat for 5-8 minutes or until jam has thinned out or until desired consistency. Slice pork and serve with sauce.
