2 tsp canola oil
1 ½ lbs pork tenderloin
¼ tsp kosher salt
¼ tsp pepper
1 cup chicken broth
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp cumin
Juice of ½ orange
½ oz bittersweet chocolate
1 cup frozen veggie mix
1 cup couscous, uncooked
Heat a large frying pan. Add oil. Season pork tenderloin with salt and pepper and place in pan. Cook two minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove pork and place in an ovenproof baking dish.
Combine ½ cup of the chicken broth, garlic powder, cumin, orange juice and chocolate in a small saucepan. Simmer on low until chocolate melts. Continue to simmer until glaze thickens slightly - about 5 mins.
Using a pastry brush, brush glaze onto pork, place in oven and cook 4 mins. Remove from oven, brush with additional glaze and return to oven for 4 additional minutes. Repeat once more. Remove from oven, re-glaze and allow to sit for 2-3 mins.
Meanwhile, heat remaining chicken broth and frozen veggies in a large microwave-safe bowl on high for 1 ½ mins. Remove bowl and add couscous. Mix gently once and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Set aside for 3 mins.
To serve, slice pork into 12 even pieces. Divide couscous mixture among 4 dinner plates and place 3 pieces of pork on each plate.
Makes 4 servings.
