I got “2 thumbs up”  at dinner last night when I served this moist, delicious pork loin filet! 

The recipe below is simple, however if you want to take a shortcut… you could just slather the freshly rinsed and patted dry pork loin with just a coating of orange marmalade and still produce a wonderful memorable main dish!

Serves: 4

Ingredients

24 oz.          pork loin filet, rinse, pat dry and place on a cutting board.

4 oz.            orange marmalade

1 1/2 tbsp    light soy sauce

1/2               lime (juice only)

1 tsp            fresh grated ginger

1 tsp            diced green onions

                    salt and pepper

                    baking spray

Directions

  1.  Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2.  Apply a light coating of baking spray to the dish.
  3.  Place pork loin in an ovensafe casserole dish.  Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4.  In a medium bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and slather the sauce on all sides of the pork loin.
  5.  Bake in a preheated oven for approximately 32 minutes, until juices from the pork run clear and the internal temperature is 142 degrees F.  Let the pork rest for 10 minutes at room temperature to reach an internal temperature of 145 – 150 degrees F.  My pork cooked faster than I anticipated and reached 168 degrees F, but it was still very moist and tender!
  6. With a serrated knife, thinly cut the pork against the grain, place the pork slices on a plate and drizzle with the natural au jus.
