Ingredients
  • 1-pound pork tenderloin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Mango Salsa (see recipe in Inspired Sides)
Directions

Be sure to buy a pork “tenderloin” and not a “pork loin,” which is a thicker cut of meat and takes longer to cook. A pork tenderloin is more tender and not as fatty as a pork loin roast. Top pork with this sweet, spicy tropical salsa you can quickly mix up when fresh mangos are not in season and available at the store.

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Season the tenderloin with salt and pepper.
  3. Coat frying pan with olive oil and turn up the heat to medium-high. Place pork in pan, and sear each side for 5 minutes, or until browned evenly.
  4. Place the pork in a sprayed or foil-covered roasting pan. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes, or until a meat thermometer stuck in the middle reads 150 degrees.
  5. Let sit for 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with Mango Salsa (in our recipe section).
