Maple-Orange Pork Tenderloin Recipe

A marinade with maple syrup, curry and orange peel gives this lean entree a wonderful glaze and tangy citrusy sauce. It’s a favorite with Penny Fraser of Calgary, Alberta.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Bake: 30 min. + standing YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup maple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel
