Pork Tenderloin with Mango Relish Recipe

Pork Tenderloin with Mango Relish Recipe

Colorful mango relish is a refreshing counterpoint to the “heat” in the meat rub I use to pep up a number of pork dishes. These roasted tenderloins are sure to turn out nice and juicy.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 45 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked Spanish paprika
  • 2 pork tenderloins (3/4 pound each)
  • MANGO RELISH:
  • 1 medium mango, peeled and chopped
  • 2 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup chopped seeded peeled cucumber
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Set aside 1/2 teaspoon for relish; rub remaining spice mixture over tenderloins. Place in a lightly greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160°. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the mango, tomatoes, onion, cucumber, cilantro and jalapeno. Combine lime juice and reserved spice mixture; add to mango mixture and toss to coat. Slice pork; serve with relish. Yield: 6 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
