Apricot Glazed Pork Tenderloin Ingredients:

  • pork tenderloin
  • salt and pepper 
  • thyme (dry)
  • rosemary
  • butter
  • olive oil
  • white wine (Pinot Grigio used)
  • chicken stock
  • apricot preserves
  • Dijon mustard
  • Worcestershire sauce

Instructions:

Separate the tenderloins then pat them dry using a paper towel. Season all over with dried thyme, salt and pepper.

In a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat, add the butter and olive oil. When the butter is melted place the tenderloin in the skillet searing all sides and ends.

Pour the white wine (I used Pinot Grigio) and chicken stock into the skillet and bake at 375° for 10 minutes. 

In a small bowl whisk the apricot preserves, Dijon, Worcestershire and Rosemary together. Brush over the top, sides and ends of the pork and bake another 10-15 minutes or until the tenderloins are done.

  • 145° medium rare
  • 150° medium
  • 155-160° well done/no pink

NOTE: Usually one tenderloin is significantly smaller and cooks more quickly. Remove it from the oven when it’s done and continue cooking the larger piece.

    Love this recipie! So easy. Made for company and was a great presentation as well as great flavor. By the way, I am not a great fan of pork. If that says anything.

      Hey Mary – that makes my day – thanks so much! Haha that says A LOT that you’re not a pork fan. We’re actually having my Honey Balsamic Pork Tenderloin today for dinner, gearing up for cooler weather dishes. Thanks for your kind words. 🙂
