“This is one of our favourite ways to eat pork tenderloin as it is so easy to make, elegant enough for company and delicious. I omit the orange zest as the kids don't care for it. You could also substitute apricot jam for peach and omit the diced dried apricots. I cook mine on the gas barbeque by heating it up to desired temperature, turning one side off and placing the tenderloins on the side that was turned off. I tend to make extra glaze as I pour about 1/2 of it on the tenderloins before cooking. This recipe came from Rose Reisman's Secret for Permanent Weight Loss Cookbook.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 lbs pork tenderloin
  • Orange Balsamic Glaze
  • 14 cup orange juice concentrate
  • 14 cup apricot jam
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 18 teaspoon salt
  • 18 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • Garnish
  • 3 tablespoons chopped parsley or 3 tablespoons cilantro
  • 14 cup diced dried apricot


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a hot non-stick grill pan or skillet sprayed with vegetable spray, sear the tenderloin for about 2 minutes per side or just until browned. Place in the prepared baking pan.
