Cranberry Glazed Pork Tenderloin

Lynn demonstrates how to make a delicious Cranberry Glazed Pork Tenderloin that would be perfect for a Holiday meal. From Food Network Magazine.


  • 1 cup cranberry juice
  • 1/3 cup red currant jelly
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • 1 pork tenderloin (about 1 pound)
  • 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 425° and line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.  Combine the cranberry juice, jelly and mustard in a medium skillet over medium-high heat; cook, stirring occasionally, until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 15 minutes.  Remove 3 Tablespoons of the glaze and set aside for brushing.  Stir the cranberries into the remaining glaze; set aside for drizzling.

Meanwhile, rub the pork with the olive oil, ½ teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper.  Place on the prepared baking sheet and roast, turning once, 15 minutes.  Remove the pork from the oven and brush all over with the reserved 3 Tablespoons glaze.  Continue to roast until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat registers 160°, 5 to 10 more minutes.  Let rest 5 minutes, then slice and drizzle with the cranberry glaze.
