Ingredients

  • 2 pork tenderloins (each about 12 oz/375 g)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 navel oranges
  • 1 onion thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup honey-garlic sauce
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup dried apricot
  • 2 tablespoons golden raisins
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh coriander
  • 1 cup whole wheat couscous
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Method

Cut pork into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices; sprinkle with salt and pepper. In large skillet, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat; brown pork. Transfer to plate.

Cut oranges into 8 wedges each. In same skillet, heat remaining oil over medium heat; fry oranges, cut side down and turning once, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add onion; cook, stirring, until softened and golden, 5 minutes.

Add honey-garlic sauce, orange juice, apricots, raisins and 1/4 cup (50 mL) water; bring to boil. Cover and simmer until orange rind is fork-tender, 5 minutes.

Return pork and any accumulated juices to pan; reduce heat and simmer to blend flavours, about 5 minutes.

Whisk cornstarch with 2 tbsp (25 mL) water; add to skillet and simmer until thickened and glossy, about 1 minute. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve with couscous.
