This easy pork tenderloin is so delicious and easy to pair with anything - potatoes, Brussel Sprouts, roasted carrots (check out my "Sides" section for recipes and ideas)... you name it! And the sweet fig sauce gives it just the little oomph it needs!
Easy Pork Tenderloin with Fig Sauce
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp smoked paprica
1 tbsp dry parsley
salt and pepper to taste
For the sauce:
1 tbsp butter
1 small shallot
1 tsp chicken broth concentrate
1 tbsp fig jam
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbps water
fresh thyme (3-4 springs) - chopped
Preheat oven to 425F.
Season the pork tenderloin with all herbs and spices.
Heat up a splash of olive oil in a big pan. Place the pork in it and cook turning around every 2 min until browned on all sides.
Cover a cookie sheet with foil. Place the pork on it and roast in the oven for 20-25 until it reaches internal temperature of 165%.
Let the pork stand for 5 min and then slice in 1 inch thick pieces.
While the pork stands, prepare the sauce.
In the same pan used to brown the pork melt the butter.
Add the shallot and cook for 30 sec - 1 min until softened.
Add the chicken broth concentrate, vinegar, fig jam and water. Mix constantly until it thickens (30 sec - 1 min). Remove from the burner and stir in the fresh thyme.
