Porn Tenderloin & Spiced Cranberry Sauce

Made a nice little cranberry sauce to fit my pork tenderloin and thought it’d be a good time to get it out. After Thanksgiving but before Christmas... The tender was very easy and I’ll scoot through that 2nd because it’s hard to screw up a tenderloin. The other 2 dishes was wild rice and roasted potatoes. Won’t be writing those up.

Pork Tenderloin Parts

Instructions

Cranberry Construction

  • Small sauce pan on medium heat
  • Add all the ingredients
  • Turn heat up to high
  • Stir til the sauce boils
  • Turn heat down to simmer
  • Simmer for 30 minutes stirring to keep it mixed
  • Most of the cranberries will pop and you can turn off heat
  • Let cool and when cooled it should be gelatin like consistency
  • Note: If you want pepper flavor without heat, scrape out seeds/vein and rinse under water. The garnish on the sauce is the zest of the lime. I didn’t taste any improvement so it’s up to you.

Tenderloin Grill

  • Coat pork in olive oil
  • Rub or sprinkle Sowflakes all over tenderloin.
  • If you can (I didn’t) do #1 and 2 a day before, wrap, and place in refrigerator overnight.
  • Get your grill going to medium heat 300-325 degrees
  • Place tenderloin on grill indirect heat. We are doing 6min +6min +6min +6min on four (4) sides.
  • Monitor internal temperature and don’t stop cooking until it gets to 165 degrees.
  • If you have cooked the 4 sides faster than the internal reaches 165 just wrap in aluminum foil and place on coolest side of grill finishing out baked.
  • Pull from grill and let rest for about 20 – 30 minutes slice against the grain.
