Servings: 2
Ingredients and Preparation
Ingredients Measures
Pork tenderloin, visible fat trimmed 1-pound
Olive oil 4 teaspoons
Salt ½ teaspoon
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Balsamic vinegar ¼ cup
Brown sugar 2 tablespoons
Dried cherries (or other dried fruit) ¼ cup
Chopped dried apricots (or other dried fruit) ¼ cup
Zest of 1 orange (about 1 teaspoon orange zest)
Juice of 1 orange
Ground cinnamon ¼ teaspoon

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Place pork in a roasting pan, rub with salt and pepper, and drizzle with olive oil. Roast about 35-45 minutes, until meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the tenderloin registers 160°F. Let rest 5 minutes before serving.
  3. Meanwhile, combine vinegar, sugar, dried fruit, orange zest, orange juice, and cinnamon in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to low and gently simmer, stirring occasionally, about 10-15 minutes, until thick. Keep the mixture warm by covering it until time to serve.
  4. Top pork with chutney and serve.

3 lean meats; 1 fat; 0.5 fruit

Side Suggestions: Zucchini and Carrot Julienne
Cut 1 small zucchini and 1 small peeled carrot into 2-inch julienne (very thin) strips. Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil over medium-high heat in a medium nonstick skillet. Cook about 5 minutes, until vegetables are tender (they should retain their shape and some of their crispness). Season with ¼ teaspoon salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
