The tangy marmalade sauce over pork tenderloin is the perfect combination for this quick and easy weeknight dinner.

  • Total time 30 minutes
  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 7 multicoloured heirloom carrots , halved lengthwise
  • 4 shallots , halved
  • 3/4 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 450 g pork tenderloin , trimmed
  • 1/4 cup orange marmalade
  • 1 tablespoon grainy mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage

Method

Preheat oven to 425°F. In large bowl, gently toss together carrots, shallots, nutmeg, 1/4 tsp of the salt and 2 tsp of the oil. Set aside. 

Sprinkle pork with remaining salt; rub all over. 

In cast-iron or ovenproof skillet, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat; cook pork, turning often, until browned, about 5 minutes. Add carrot mixture to pan; roast until instant-read thermometer inserted sideways in centre of pork reads 155°F, about 15 minutes. Transfer pork to cutting board; tent with foil. Let rest for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing.

Meanwhile, in small saucepan, stir together marmalade, mustard and sage; cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until slightly thickened and syrupy, 3 to 5 minutes. Set aside. 

Toss carrot mixture with skillet juices; return sliced pork to pan. Spoon marmalade sauce over top.

Test Kitchen Technique: Letting the pork rest before adding the marmalade glaze means less glaze will slip off the meat while cooking and stick to the pan.
