This pork is delicious! Jeff and I both greatly enjoyed this dish. Tender pork coupled with the sweet sauce made for a fabulous dinner. This recipe is from the February 2011 issue of Bon Appetit.
Honey-Marinated Pork with Gremolata
- 2 12- to 14-ounce pork tenderloins, trimmed
- 1/3 cup honey
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon orange juice
- 1 teaspoon (or more) fine sea salt
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/4 cup dry white wine
- 1 tablespoon finely grated orange peel
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
- 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
- 2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage
Place pork in 11x7x2-inch glass baking dish. Whisk honey, garlic, and orange juice in small bowl. Pour over pork; turn to coat. Sprinkle pork with 1 teaspoon sea salt and 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Cover and chill at least 2 hours. DO AHEAD Can be made 1 day ahead. Keep chilled.
Preheat oven to 375°F. Transfer pork to plate; reserve marinade. Heat oil in large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to skillet. Brown on all sides, turning often, about 4 minutes. Transfer to oven; cook until instant-read thermometer inserted into center of pork registers 150°F, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to cutting board; let rest 5 minutes. Reserve skillet.
Pour reserved marinade into same skillet; add wine. Boil gently until reduced to 1/2 cup, 3 to 4 minutes. Season with sea salt and pepper.
Mix orange peel, thyme, rosemary, and sage in small bowl for gremolata. Cut pork crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices; transfer to platter. Pour sauce over pork. Sprinkle with gremolata and serve.
