Pomegranate Pork Tenderloin Recipe

Publisher Photo
Tender cubes of pork are paired with a flavorful sweet-tart pomegranate juice sauce. Add a salad or some steamed veggies to complete the meal. If you are making this during the week, try using a long grain and wild rice mix, which cooks more quickly than wild rice.—Elizabeth Dumont, Boulder, Colorado
