Pork Tenderloin with a Cassis & Soy Sauce Reduction
- Ready in: 30 minutes prep; 30 minutes to cook
- Serves: 4
- Complexity: medium
Recipe by Claire Fitts.
- 1 tbs. olive oil
- 1 medium fennel bulb, sliced
- 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes (optional)
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 1 cup Vermont maple syrup
- 1/2 cup cassis
- 1 lb. pork tenderloin
Cut the pork tenderloin into 4 equal pieces and set aside. In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil, fennel, and red pepper flakes over medium heat for 3–5 minutes, until fennel starts to soften. Add the soy sauce, maple syrup, and cassis and mix to combine. Cook for an additional 2 minutes, until the mixture begins to boil. Add the pork tenderloin to the pan and cook for 7–10 minutes per side, until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 155 °F or your preferred temperature. Remove the pork from the pan, cover, and let rest. Continue to cook the reduction for 1–2 minutes longer or until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Serve the pork and sauce over brown rice or with potatoes. Serves 4.
