  • Splatter Screen
  • Cast Iron Skillet
  • Instant Read Thermometer


  • 1/3 cup onion diced
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp rice wine
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 pound pork tenderloin
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • cooking spray or oil


  • In a ziplock bag or bowl, combine onion, 2 tablespoons orange juice, 2 tablespoons syrup, rice wine, soy sauce, pepper, and garlic.
  • Trim any excess fat from the pork and add it to the bag or bowl. Marinate in the fridge for 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • Heat an oven proof skillet over medium high heat. Spray with cooking spray or add a little oil. Remove the pork from the bag and reserve the marinade.
  • Brown the pork on all sides, for a total of about 5 minutes. Insert a meat thermometer (if using) and place the pan in the oven. Roast for 15-20 minutes or until pork reaches 145 degrees.
  • Remove pan from oven and place pork on cutting board, tented with foil to rest.
  • Place skillet over medium high heat, add the rest of the marinade, 2 tablespoons of orange juice, 2 tablespoons maple syrup and chicken broth. Bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to low and simmer until sauce thickens slightly.
  • Slice pork and serve with sauce.



Marinating in a ziplock bag keeps everything covered and moist. To play it safe, I always place my bag in a bowl or container in case it leaks there is no mess in the fridge!
